Videos by American Songwriter

ARTIST: Erick Baker

SONG: “In Love With A Lie”

BIRTHDATE: December 12, 1978


AMBITIONS: I hope to one day have a savings account again. I haven’t had one in over 5 years.

TURN-OFFS: Bad teeth and granny panties.

TURN-ONS: No teeth and no panties.

DREAM GIG: It actually already came true on August 17, 2010, when I got to play the Ryman Auditorium.

MY GO-TO FEEL GOOD RECIPE: 1 rocks glass, 1 scoop of crushed ice, 1 generous pour of Jack Daniel’s, and 1 splash of Coke. A sure fire way to wash those bad feelings away!

CELEBRITY CRUSH: Because my wife has to put up with so much crap being married to me, I don’t feel right saying I have a crush on anyone but her.

THE BOOK THAT CHANGED MY LIFE: “Fifty Shades of Grey” My wife just read all 3 books!

5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: In honor of my Dad, I will first say a pocket knife, but I’m not going to say a handkerchief, which would be second on his list, because that’s just gross. Second, every man needs at least one weapon so he’s prepared for the zombie apocalypse. No one should go through life without an iPhone. A lawn mower. There are few things in life that give me the immediate gratification I find in a freshly mowed yard. And every man should own a good hat. It completes every outfit, and you don’t have to wash your hair as much.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: My lucky black marble given to me by my daughter Annabelle.

I WROTE THIS SONG: After a long conversation with a friend of mine who just broke up with his long time girlfriend. During the conversation, he said, “I feel like this whole time I’ve been in love with a lie.” I politely replied, “I’m so sorry to hear that man, but there is a song in there somewhere!”
