Full Story:

 

Eric told the "Detroit News", quote, "I've always felt like evolution was a great part of the growth of country music.  Yeah, I grew up on country, but I also grew up on AC/DC, Metallica, Pantera and Black Sabbath."

 

And even though Eric has opened for a lot of big name country acts . . . like Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean . . . he's not afraid to admit his biggest influence as a performer was touring with BOB SEGER.

 

Eric said, quote, "Bob came out there with sound and lights, that's it; and when he walked out there the place went (super) crazy.
