Take 10: From bullied to big stage singer, Eric Dodge talks about fears, dreams

ST. GEORGE — You might know him best by his shiny black performance cowboy boots or his drawl as he takes to the big stage in one of his many country music performances, but Southern Utah native Eric Dodge has a story to tell, and it has nothing, and everything, to do with his singing career.
