It's "All Over" for Dodds, no lie

Friday, September 29, 2017 – Cale Dodds made his debut today with a double-sided single.

"All Over / Lying" is the single from the Warner Brothers artist, who co-wrote both songs in an unusual release. Almost all singles are released as one song.

This is the first of three double singles that he will release over the next few months, each featuring an updated version of an already-released song as well as a brand new track.

Dodds credits influences from Tom Petty to Garth Brooks in playing what his label describes as contemporary country music. A Thousand Horses featured his co-written track "(This Ain't No) Drunk Dial" as their second single, which broke the Top 25 at country radio.

"In my songs, I try to pinpoint moments that people think about, but don't know how to verbalize," said Dodds. "I love when people say 'that's exactly how I feel' or 'that's what I think about all the time, I just never knew how to say it.' I take pride in being observant, seeing as much life as I can, freeze framing those moments and documenting them in my music. I think 'All Over' and 'Lying' are examples of moments that are honest and true to me, and I hope that they resonate with people."

He signed with Warner in January.

The Columbus, Ga. native will continue to share behind-the-scenes looks at writing, touring and more with his recently launched "Cale Cam" video series. He toured this summer with Sam Hunt, Brett Eldredge and Kip Moore, and he will join Billy Currington at the Ogden Theatre in Denver on Oct. 13. He will launch his first-ever nationwide radio tour in January.

"I love interacting with fans at shows because they give me their stories, which I relate to my own and then write about them. Those interactions make me want to write about something that I didn't know I should write about. It makes me think that they want to hear what I'm saying because they've experienced it too. I'm excited to get my new music out there so I can continue to draw from and give back to the people listening."

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be).
