Fresh from his biggest London show to date at the legendary Hammersmith Apollo this weekend, Devin Dawson has announced he’ll be kicking off 2019 with a return visit to the UK - his fifth trip across the pond in just eighteen months - to support CMT ‘Duo Of The Year’ award winning and CMA & ACM award-nominated country/pop duo Dan + Shay on each of their forthcoming tour dates across the country:
Jan 17th: The Garage - Glasgow (sold out)
Having spent the last few months on tour with label-mate Brett Eldredge, Dawson also started his first-ever USA headlining tour earlier this month; and due to popular demand, the “Stray Off Course Tour” has now been extended through February 2019, with members of the brand new “Dark Horse Family” getting early access to tickets, among other exclusive content and benefits.
In October he also made his debut at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, with a surprise guest appearance from global pop superstar Ed Sheeran. Devin’s links with the UK don’t end there: he recently appeared alongside Dan + Shay and a number of other high-profile artists and industry figures in BBC Radio 1’s ‘Beyond Nashville’ documentary, presented by DJ Scott Mills.
The album ‘Dark Horse’, featuring the new single & title track, is out now to stream/download worldwide. Limited tickets remain for select cities on the Dan + Shay UK tour dates in January 2019 - visit AXS for details.
ABOUT DEVIN DAWSON + ‘DARK HORSE’:
For a song that almost didn’t make his album, Devin Dawson’s new single ‘Dark Horse’ is definitely living up to its name. Co-written by Dawson alongside Andy Albert and Andrew DeRoberts, it ended up becoming the title track on his Warner Music Nashville (East West / Atlantic Records) debut LP and now serves as the rising star’s latest single. According to American Songwriter, “Dawson gets raw and deeply personal [on ‘Dark Horse’]… it shows off the classic country vocals and acoustic guitar prowess he has come to be known and loved for. ‘Dark Horse’ gets to the heart of who Dawson is…” Called a “moody and confident stunner” by Nashville industry publication MusicRow, it showcases why his music “is true to country’s roots even as it stretches beyond them” (People).
