The only country artist on Entertainment Weekly’s “8 Artists Who Will Rule 2018” list, who described his Top 5 debut album Dark Horse as an “intoxicating swirl of pop, R&B, and rock,” has also partnered with Samsung 837 for “Doers Defying Barriers.” The one-night-only discussion and performance will be this Thursday, February 22 at the brand’s experiential flagship in New York City.
Always looking for ways to connect with fans, the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter will head out on tour with Brett Eldredge in April and recently added a slew of his own headline dates, with Nashville’s March 29 show at Exit/In selling out in just one day. Dawson’s meteoric rise earned him a spot as the only male recording artist on both People’s“Ones to Watch” list and ELLE’s Fall Culture Preview in addition to Artist to Watch recognition from acclaimed outlets including Huffington Post, AXS, Billboard and more. He made his national television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers the same week his “memorably melodic breakout out” (Billboard) “All On Me” arrived at radio as well as his elite status as one of few artists to make his TODAY show debut in both the 8AM and 10AM hours.

Each new installment occurs in the location where he wrote the track, sharing the stories alongside his co-writers in addition to a new version of the song. Watch here:
