“I love country music. I love to perform! I just want to create a sound that is true to who I am. So to be able to put my music out to the world and have it received so well and see the positive reaction from the fans and radio is absolutely amazing!”
After such a great start to his music career with his debut CD “Enjoy The Ride”, which Dawson has no doubt been doing. It only made sense that his talent and drive would take him to Nashville to begin working with top industry writers and industry minds to begin work on his next CD. Dawson has been hard at work the over the past year and a half writing and gathering new songs for his first US Nashville produced EP due out in the US, Canada and internationally in the summer of 2016. Dawson’s new hot summer single, ‘LOVE WAS ALL YOU’ is available now for preorder on iTunes.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have been introduced to some of Nashville’s top industry music minds that include musicians, hit writers, managers, publicists and producers, especially Julian. I am very excited to work with all these great people that will be a big part of my team as we get ready for my US debut!”
Dawson has written with some of Nashville’s top hit writers like Byron Hill (Gary Allan/Alabama/Joe Nichols), Brian White (Rodney Atkins/Trace Adkins), Ken Johnson (Craig Morgan/Josh Thompson), Phil Barton (Lee Brice), Johnny Bulford (Lee Brice) and Jaron Boyer (Jason Aldean). As well as his good friend and hot new Nashville song writer Aaron Goodvin (Luke Bryan/Scotty McCreery/Jon Pardi).
“Great music to me are the songs that move people, make them feel something down deep inside that will last for years to come. Live music shows should always leave you feeling that you just experienced something special, something you have to see and hear again and again. That is and always will be my goal!”
Dawson hopes the music he loves to create continues to be enjoyed by his fans for years to come. That definitely has been the case so far for this successful international country recording artist.
