“The best mix of Sun Records meets the Grand Ole Opry that I’ve ever seen or heard,” proclaimed Hollywood actor/musician Billy Bob Thornton after attending Eric Heatherly’s sold-out performance at The House of Blues in Los Angeles. His first album, Swimming in Champagne, (Mercury Records) surfaced in April 2000. It met with widespread critical honors, became Billboard’s #44 Top Album of the year and yielded three Top 40 singles. One of those singles, “Flowers on the Wall,” walked away with the honor of the #3 Top Country Single of 2000 AND #1 video designation from both Great American Country (GAC) and Country Music Television (CMT).
