Hello, soap fans, Days of Our Lives fans, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black, Days of Our Lives) fans, and Brady Black fans. Eric Martsolf, as you’ll see below in my post and the following press release that we received here at LTAS, has released a single “Days Go Buy” . It is lovely, and I encourage you to buy it (links to do so are at the bottom of the press release) for that reason, but also because we need to support our soaps and soap stars! Especially in a time when the fates of our beloved shows can be tenuous and frequently called into question.
I thought of Brady Black often while listening to the wistful track: his breakup with the woman who was arguably the love of his life, Chloe—they loved each other deeply but had to separate for many reasons despite their bond; how Nicole betrayed him, and despite their great friendship, they had to then part; Melanie leaving him while they still had a great affection for each other, so Theresa wouldn’t make their lives miserable.
I left ratings and reviews on the single’s Amazon site and iTunes page! Consider doing so as well!

For Immediate Release
From Dollywood to Hollywood: Eric Martsolf, Days Of Our Lives star, goes back to his beginnings and teams up with a former Dollywood Co-star, Holly Norman, to release new music with an old friend
NASHVILLE, TN (January 1, 2016) – Eric Martsolf is best known for portraying Brady Black on the
hit soap Days of Our Lives. But long before he was making TV audiences swoon, he was making music. Although acting has become his full time job, Eric has always had a passion for music. So, he recently teamed up with longtime friend, Nashville singer/songwriter Holly Norman, to record a brand new duet penned by Norman, “Days Go By.”
In the late 90’s, one of Eric’s musical ventures included being a featured performer in a theater at Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s nationally recognized theme park in Pigeon Forge, TN. It was there Eric first met and worked with Holly Norman, performing together in a 50’s themed show, Let The Good Times Roll. After leaving Dollywood, Eric continued to pursue music, but his acting abilities landed him a major role on the soap opera Passions. Currently, he plays the Brady Black character role on Days of Our Lives, for which he won an Emmy Award in 2012 for best supporting actor.
Almost 20 years went by since Holly and Eric had seen each other or spoken. Then by fate they were reunited. Eric was invited back to Dollywood in August 2015 to participate in a charity/fan event. Holly was contacted by the organizers to surprise Eric for the event, as sort of a homecoming celebration. During the event, Holly and Eric ended up reconnecting and reminiscing about the paths their lives had taken, Eric’s to California and Holly’s to Nashville. They talked about their love of music and singing and Holly told Eric about a duet song she’d written that she’d been looking for the perfect male to sing on with her. Eric jumped at the chance to be able to come to Nashville and record. So, in October 2015 while Eric was in Nashville for a DOOL fan event, he carved out some time to record his vocals at Funhouse Studios on legendary Music Row – and there, magic was made!
The song, “Days Go By”, is about a couple parting ways; something Eric relates to all to well since his Days character Brady can’t seem to settle down with the right woman. The song really showcases the beautiful, effortless blend of Holly and Eric’s vocals. With Holly’s sweet, angelic tones and Eric’s deep, rich voice, the song is certain to capture audiences and paint a vivid picture of a love gone wrong. Holly and Eric are excited to be working together again and hope to make this the start of something special.
