Dawson Reigns kicks off debut headline tour

Dawson’s forthcoming single, the brand new and brilliantly Nashville sounding, Love Was All You comes from the pen of none other than the aforementioned Cannan Smith (of Love You Like That fame), in collaboration with Jaron Boyer (who has just scored a number 1 with Dierks Bentley’s Somewhere On A Beach, and who also helped craft Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party), and Arron Goodvin (Out Like That, for Luke Bryan). Some pretty big and pretty impressive names right there. So as you can see, Dawson is certainly movin’ in the right circles. And your ‘in-card’ for those kind of circles is simple: talent. And Dawson’s got it.
When you consider that singer/songwriter Dawson has also co-written with number 1 hit-writers like Byron Hill (of Toby Keith’s smash hit, How Do You Like Me Now ), Johnny Bulford (who gave us Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over ), and Phil Barton (Lee Brice’s A Woman Like You), then it’s clear to see that Dawson, and his new single Love Was All You , are pretty much straight out of Nashville, in all the best interpretations of the phrase!
But this isn’t Dawson’s first time venturing beyond the banks of the Cumberland. In fact, you could say Dawson’s international appeal has already been confirmed. Receiving airplay in over 150 countries around the world, his debut album, ENJOY THE RIDE was certainly aptly titled! Lead-off single If Crazy Wasn’t So Beautiful soared all the way to number 1 on the Queensland Hot Country chart in Australia, while the follow-up, Someone Watching Over Me, climbed its way into the Top Ten there, too.
Dawson also enjoyed a wonderful acknowledgment of his talent from Bob Harris in the UK. In 2010, this veritable icon of country music presenting, who was once described by the Radio times as being, ‘One of the greats of British contemporary music broadcasting and an independent champion of great music’, gave spins to no less than three of Dawson’s tunes (If Crazy Wasn’t So Beautiful, Enjoy The Ride, and Girl Next Door) on his prestigious BBC Radio 2 show.
