Country Side Of Heaven

Album: Eric Paslay (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This track features additional vocals by the members of Little Big Town. The group's Kimberly Schlapman was one of the first to hear the song – Paslay played it for her when he made a guest appearance on her GAC cooking show, and he recalled her reaction. "We just stood there with our hands in our pockets just looking at the speaker playing, but it was cool," he said. "I know that she has lost really close people in her life, and I think that's what music is for. It's one of the best medicines, even if you're completely broken-hearted, it somehow can get you through your tough stuff. I know that's definitely true to my life, how music can help you overcome things. I think 'Country Side of Heaven' is one of those special songs. I am glad that it moved Kimberly and it moves me."
