Erick Baker: An Evening of Stories and Songs

Dates: March 30, 2019

I didn’t grow up singing or playing music. I’ve never had voice lessons,
and it wasn’t until after college that I started teaching myself how to
play guitar. So, if you’d told me then that I’d end up making a living as a
singer-songwriter, I wouldn't have believed you. Even now, with the
upcoming release of my fifth studio album, Morning Light, I can barely
believe it.

I hadn’t seriously considered pursuing a career in music until May 9,
2007, when I walked off stage after opening for John Legend. One set,
six songs in just thirty minutes, changed my life forever. Since then, I’ve
been lucky enough to play with artists like Heart, Brandi Carlile, Gavin
DeGraw, James Blunt, Grace Potter, Goo Goo Dolls, as well as tour
Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, performing for our men and women
in uniform stationed overseas.

Music has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Without music,
I may have never met the two greatest loves of my life, my wife,
Mandy, and my daughter, Annabelle Rose Baker. So, I see my songs as a
celebration of every right turn and wrong turn that has led me here,
and not a day goes by that I don’t give thanks for that old wood box
with six strings.

Along with my career in music, I’m also an Emmy Award winning writer
and host of the national PBS travel television series Tennessee Valley
Uncharted, which showcases the beauty, culture, and adventure across
the Southeast. After years of touring the world as a singer-songwriter
and seeing life pass by through a windshield, I’m now getting the
opportunity, as the host of Tennessee Valley Uncharted, to explore and
rediscover how great The Valley is one city at a time.
