Warner Music Nashville / Atlantic Records recording artist Devin Dawson performed for the first time on national TV when he played his Gold-certified debut single “All On Me” on Late Night with Seth Meyers early last year. This time, he’ll be bringing his current single “Asking For a Friend” back to the late night program for its first national TV performance on Monday, June 11. In a recent Billboard article, the CMT Music Awards nominee shared the writing process for the track (READ HERE), which was also the most added new song at country radio upon release and included as one of Rolling Stone’s 10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week.
The Nor-Cal native is currently on tour overseas making stops in Germany, Netherlands and the UK before coming back to the U.S. for Nashville’s CMA Music Fest. He’ll also join Tim McGraw & Faith Hill for the 2018 leg of their critically-lauded Soul2Soul The World Tour this summer before heading out on the road again with label-mate Brett Eldredge this September for a second set of The Long Way Tour dates through the fall.
The 2018 ACM New Male Artist nominee has made additional national TV performances on TODAY, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and ELLEN, where Ellen DeGeneres herself presented him on-air with his very first RIAA Gold-certified plaque for his “memorably melodic breakout” (Billboard) “All On Me.” Called “One of country music’s most tender and articulate wordsmiths…” by The Tennessean, Dawson co-wrote every track on his debut album Dark Horse, which arrived Top 3 and Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums Charts, making it the highest charting country debut from a solo male so far this year. He was the only country artist on Entertainment Weekly’s “8 Artists Who Will Rule 2018” list and Shazam’s “Next to Know” list with People and ELLE featuring him as the only male recording artist across all genres on their 2018 Artists to Watch lists.
