Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic Records’ Devin Dawson became the most added new artist this week at country radio with his debut single “All On Me.” This kicks off an enormous week for Dawson, who will perform the single this Thursday, May 4, on Late Night with Seth Meyers followed by his Grand Ole Opry debut on May 5.
“16 years of writing, playing, and singing music. 10 years of being a touring musician. Five years of living in Nashville. Two years of writing for this record. Two months in the studio recording. 11 weeks (so far) of radio tour and hundreds of new friends and unforgettable experiences. It all boils down to this ONE SONG, ONE DAY, and ONE DREAM of many,” says Dawson. “Thank you to my friends at Country Radio for adding “All On Me” and supporting my purpose and my dream! Can’t wait for this song to reach the rest of the world.”
Dawson has already received early industry recognition, featured as a Rolling Stone: 10 Artists You Need To Know, a current CMT: 17 for 2017 Artists to Watch, a 2017 VEVO dscvr artist and part of iHeartCountry’s Digital Artist Integration Program. CMT notes that with “his unique vibe and his soulful, blues-infused sound, you’ll pick Dawson out of a crowd with ease…setting out to forge his own path in country music” while Taste of Country tells listeners to be ready for “a unique, confident sound from a new artist who has taken the time to mold his craft.”
With a nomination as the Association of Independent Music Publisher’s Rising Independent Artist-Writer of the Year, Dawson has already amassed over eight million total streams with “All On Me” reaching #3 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart and #5 on their Global Viral Chart.
Wrapping the Maren Morris Hero Tour earlier this year, Dawson will also join Tim McGraw and Faith Hill later this summer to play select dates on their Soul2Soul Tour.
