Dodds drops new single

Friday, October 5, 2018 – Cale Dodds released a new single, "What We Gonna Do About It?"

"I'm really excited about getting this song out to fans," said Dodds, who is on the Warner Nashville label. "'What We Gonna Do About It' has the exact kind of party feel that I want in my live show. People come to a country music concert for an hour and a half to forget, and I want to give them something to remember."

Dodds, who penned the tune with producer Corey Crowder and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard, also created the concept for its official music video. With the help of his band, director Dustin Haney and a senior center in Nashville, the video premiered today.

"When I told my manager and Dustin, the director, what I wanted to do for the visuals, they said, 'That's probably the most you idea we've ever heard.' They were right. I love making people laugh, and I think that's exactly what this video will do. I'm lucky to have a team around me that gave us the creative freedom to make our vision come to life."

The Georgia native has achieved some success as a songwriter, including with A Thousand Horses. His first single for the label, "All Over," came out last year.

Concert Review: Underwood keeps it world class – There are different levels of fame. There are quite a few artists who go by a mononym; no one asks "Sting or Bono "who?"
