Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville recording artist Devin Dawson returned to the “scene of the crime” Monday afternoon to celebrate the official “Dark Horse” music video launch (watch below). Dawson invited fans and industry alike to Warren Paint & Color Company where the video was filmed, unveiling it to attendees for the first time followed by a surprise live performance of the single itself. Directed by Justin Clough, the black and white video made its exclusive broadcast premiere on CMT as well.
“Dark Horse” is the third single and title track off his critically-acclaimed debut LP, which was named one of 2018’s best country albums by Esquire, Rolling Stone and Billboard. Called “one of country music’s most tender and articulate wordsmiths” by The Tennessean, Dawson co-wrote every song on the album, which arrived at Top 3 and Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums Charts.
The California native wrapped his headlining “Stray Off Course Tour” this past weekend in Medina, OH, and he will make a trip overseas in the spring for shows in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. He will then return to the US for shows across the country, including major festivals such as Stagecoach.
