Singer-Songwriter Erik Dylan Collaborates With Luke Combs, Steve Earle for New Album
Singer-songwriter Erik Dylan got a little high profile help on his sophomore album, Baseball on the Moon: The 13-track project features collaborations with Luke Combs and Steve Earle. Readers can press play above to hear the title track, which features a guest appearance from Combs.
The heartfelt "Baseball on the Moon" gains a little extra grit from Combs' gravelly approach, with lyrics that offer a message of hope for all the dreamers out there. "They're gonna cut you down / Tell you your best ain't good enough / That your 'want to, got to''s gotta be bigger than your 'givin' up' / Go on and ask that girl to dance / Hell, she might just kiss a fool / Here's to the dreamers like you," the chorus repeats, encouraging listeners to pursue their dreams no matter who tries to dissuade them.
The riff-heavy "Someday," which features Earle, may be more fun-loving, but features the same organic, gritty approach to songwriting. The song tackles the beloved country-song topic of being stuck in a small town, and dreaming of a life out in the wider world. "My brother went to college cause he played football / But I'm still hangin' round 'cause I'm a little bit small" Dylan sings. "I got me a '67 Chevy, she's low and sleek and black / Someday I'll put her on that interstate and never look back."
An acclaimed songwriter in his own right, Dylan has written for artists such as Kip Moore, Eric Paslay, Justin Moore and the Eli Young Band, along with releasing his own critically-acclaimed debut album, Heart of a Flatland Boy, in 2016.
