Dawson releases "All On Me" video
Thursday, July 6, 2017
– Devin Dawson released the music video today for his debut single "All On Me."
The almost entirely black-and-white piece was directed by Justin Clough and shot at the Tennessee State Prison, the same filming location as the movie "The Green Mile."
Dawson told People that the video was "like the world's about to end, and it's just me and the girl. I wanted the visuals to contrast this bouncy, summer kind of driving song. It's playing off of that first line of like, 'Hey, I know the woes and the weight of the world can get you down, but don't let it.' So essentially, it's like, 'Hey, I know it's the end, and there's nothing we can do about it, so I'm here for you, come lean on me."
Dawson, 28, kicked off the year on tour with Maren Morris and will join Tim McGraw and Faith Hill later this month to play select dates on their Soul2Soul Tour. The Orangevale, Cal. resident grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison. He heard the sirens at night and drew inspiration from Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne) produced his music. Dawson co-wrote all the songs.
