Eric had his songwriting play out in his personal life recently when he and his wife Katherine found themselves “sittin around waiting on two pink lines.” Although Eric’s 2006 single “Two Pink Lines” was about the anxiety surrounding a pregnancy test, Eric and his wife of three years are thrilled to announce that they are expecting their first child this Fall.
“Katherine and I are very excited and are looking forward to becoming parents,” shares Eric. “This year has gotten off to an amazing start for us and this news has made it so much better than we could have ever anticipated.”
Eric is the ACM New Solo Vocalist Of The Year and now a nominee for ACM New Artist Of The Year. The 46th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards is broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
