Influenced by the great Muscle Shoals Sound Alabama born, Van Eaton, found a love of music as a child, but didn't approach the music industry until much later in life. As a songwriter, he began writing and recording.One of his demos caught the attention of Bluegrass Icon, Del McCoury. From that, McCoury found the title to his CD “Its’s Just the Night” which was released in 2003 and became the biggest selling Bluegrass cd of that year.
With this success Van was invited to the Butcher Shoppe studio to record again. Joined by members of The Del McCoury Band, Van's Cd, "Blood On The Ground" was born. Produced by Daviid 'Fergie' Ferguson of Johnny Cash fame, this cd already has critics and fans talking.
