Eric Burgett – Rich Man

CD Review: Eric Burgett – Rich Man

by Matt Belyea for Country Music News International

Eric Burgett comes at country from a different angle, trading 6 strings for 88 keys and as an accomplished keyboard player he could probably be making a comfortable living as a teacher, (he has a master’s in keyboard, and currently is an adjunct professor at Belmont University).– Meanwhile, living in Nashville and chasing the dream, he’s been working hard to make a name for himself with his “Back of the truck” nationwide tours, and getting noticed by Nashville with a record deal with McClure’s Bow to Stern Records.


With a producer like Matt McClure (Lee Brice, song of the year “I Drive Your Truck CMT & AMC Awards) behind you, the bar is set high, and the tune is listenable and fits well on contemporary Nashville Country radio, where I am sure it will be.  I was a bit turned off by the dryness of what sounds like programmed drums, and the song has an overall demo quality to it.  I honestly would expect more from a seasoned pro producer, but the song has some good hooks and I’d give it a listen if I were you.  It’s fun and positive and has a chorus you can sing along to, and personally I’ve dug into his other tracks to have a listen to his music.
