Eric Heatherly Returns to the Resort October 13, 2018
The Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach, Florida keeps the music going with the Guest Exclusive Concert Series by welcoming back Mercury Records Rock-a-Billy and Country Music performing artist Eric Heatherly to the Escape Deck on October 13, 2018. This is Eric’s second performance at the resort and if you missed him the first time, don’t miss your chance this October!
Over a decade ago, Eric Heatherly released his debut album Swimming in Champagne and stormed the country charts with his rockabilly-inflected revival of the Statler Brothers classic hit, “Flowers On the Wall.” The original recording had been featured in the film Pulp Fiction.
Heatherly creates an authentic Rock-A-Billy/Country/Blues-Rock sound as well as a visually fascinating spectacle. His typical set features everything from his hit originals to classic covers to deep blues. All presented with a veteran showman’s invitation to enjoy and celebrate the moment with a wide array of audiences.
A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, he had paid his dues playing nightly for meager tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville for a decade. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show.
His years of dedicated effort were rewarded with a major label deals with Mercury Records, Dreamworks & Universal. His take on country with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s “Critic’s Pick” award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.” Heatherly has taken to International audiences and charted several hits in nineteen European territories as well as landing in the #1 i-Tunes slot in Japan.
Heatherly has won acclaim from countless fans and from entertainment notables such as guitar legends Duane Eddy and Tony Joe White, and Hollywood types including William Shatner and Robert Rodriguez. His lyrical talents even landed his work on the USA Today best seller list when an author used the words to several of his new songs in her novels.
Record deals, chart positions, and fame come and go (often quickly). But Heatherly is in it for the long haul. He continues to develop his craft and strives to be a faithful steward of his God-given talents, directing his energies toward creating and sharing the music he loves for the people who love his music.
