Time will tell which of his nominated songs Eric will perform LIVE at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. But let’s start a wish list, if you could pick a song for Eric to sing, which song would you like to see him perform at the ACMs, “Springsteen” or “Creepin'” or his current single “Like Jesus Does”? Watch each one and let us know. I can’t decide.
