Like most new artists, Eric Paslay headed to the store to buy a copy of his debut album when it came out.
Like many new artists, the cashier didn’t recognize him.
“I maybe bought some creamer or something with it. Coffee creamer and my album,” Eric told reporters about his trip to Walmart.
“And the girl checks it out, and she looks at the record and she kinda looked at me and looked at the record and put it in the bag,” he said.
That wasn’t good enough for Eric.
“I said, ‘I’ve been probably been waiting over 10 years for that record to come out.’ She goes, ‘Wow, 10 years? How did you know that?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s my record,’” he said.
The cashier didn’t buy that 100 percent.
“She definitely pulled open the record and called every Walmart assistant over to check it out and ask if it was really me. But it was kinda fun.”
