Recent Country Music #CMchat guest Dallas Davidson
is undoubtedly one of the hottest Nashville songwriters in the history of country music. One glance at his discography will leave you shaking your head at the number of hit songs you know and love that have Dallas’ King Midas touch on them. And, like a true hit-maker, Dallas has done it again, this time with friends Lee Brice
and Rob Hatch
by his side.
The title track and lead single off Lee’s latest album, I Don’t Dance
, waltzed its way to Number 1 on the charts, was certified platinum by the RIAA
, and was nominated for the 2014 CMA Song of the Year
. The songwriting trio, along with friends, family, and peers, celebrated the great success of “I Don’t Dance” earlier this week at East Ivy Mansion in Nashville.
Also present at the event was country music’s first signed DJ, Dee Jay Silver, who took time away from his tour and syndicated radio show to spin at the celebration. Included in Dee Jay’s set were remixes of Dallas’ nineteen chart toppers, including Blake Shelton’s “Boys ‘Round Here,” Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night,” and Randy Houser’s “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight.”
To commemorate the great success of Dallas Davidson, Troy Tomlinson
and the Sony ATV
team surprised him with a plaque for his “19 No. 1s and Counting,” adding that if Number 1’s were counted by sales, Dallas would actually have at least thirty-eight under his belt. Representatives from BMI
and Dallas’ management team were there to celebrate, as well as his brother, sister, and wife, who is expecting their first child (get the full story on Dallas’ marriage here
