By this time we have come to expect Hook Jaw Net Radio to give us an exclusive. On Friday R&B Singer Eric Benét went ‘On Air with Robert & CC’ at PBR Rock Bar making them the only Las Vegas media outlet to interview him for his nationwide tour with Ledisi (Las Vegas was a tour stop on his multicity tour).

The accomplished singer talked about his new album ‘The One’ and talked about his most recent 2012 Grammy nomination (he’s been nominated for 4 Grammys in his career). The humbled R&B artist also talked about the best moment of his career.

“Check this out I was doing a performance in Hermosa, CA and Stevie Wonder wanted to do a song with me. Stevie has always been a musical influence in my life and he came on stage to give me a hug and he wanted to do his song ‘Superstition’! I looked at the Bass player and he was like I know the bass line, I looked at the drummer and he said I know the groove and the keyboard player said I’ll fall in, if that wasn’t good enough, Stevie said during the song that I was his favorite R&B singer today, I about passed out!”

A pleasant surprise! A fan traveled from Japan to attend Eric’s appearance at PBR and of course the concert at House of Blues. It should be no surprise that EB’s (Eric Benét fans) travel well! The artist has some great music and interviewed well for the network.

Funniest quote of the show: “Drink, eat, and um crap, dance. You have to squeeze in crap before the dance if not it’s going to get messy”! –Eric after CC asked him what his favorite thing to do while in Vegas was.
