Moments after leaving the stage at Country 102.5 Street Party 2, Eric Paslay joined Marissa for a chat in our artist lounge.

First things first, Marissa wanted to know what was up with the giant beard.

“I’m just going back to my roots,” “I was born with a giant beard. My first album, I kinda had a big beard. I’ve been working on my farm too much to cut my beard.”

Maybe Paslay’s beard was growing along with his wife’s belly. The couple just announced that they were pregnant back in the summer.

“Middle of December, I have no clue if it’s a boy or a girl, it’ll be a Lion King moment,” Paslay quipped.

“I have two nephews, if we have a boy we’re hooked up,” he explained. “If we have a girl, she’ll be wearing boys clothes with a whole lot of ribbons.”
