Dawson goes with "Dark Horse"
Saturday, October 14, 2017
– Devin Dawson will release his debut, "Dark Horse," on Jan. 19, 2018 on Atlantic/Warner.
"I'm beyond excited to finally share the release date for my debut album," said Dawson. "And when it came time to choose a title, nobody talked about other options - we knew immediately it should share the same name as the track 'Dark Horse.' Despite being written after the album was 'finished,' I felt it was absolutely necessary to include this song. 'Dark House' captures every corner of my heart, everything I am and everything I believe in."
Dawson had a co-write on all dozen songs, including the hit single "All On Me." The disc was produced by Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne).
The track list is:
1. "Dip" (Devin Dawson/Barry Dean/Luke Laird)
2. "All On Me" (Devin Dawson/Jacob Durrett/Austin Smith)
3. "Asking For A Friend" (Devin Dawson/Connie Harrington/Brett Beavers)
4. "Second To Last" (Devin Dawson/Laura Veltz/Mark Trussell)
5. "Symptoms" (Devin Dawson/Austin Smith)
6. "I Don't Care Who Sees" (Devin Dawson/Austin Smith/Jake Mitchell/Jacob Durrett)
7. "Secondhand Hurt" (Devin Dawson/Will Bowen)
8. "Placebo" (Devin Dawson/Jordan Reynolds/David Hodges)
9. "War Paint" (Devin Dawson/Clint Lagerberg/Chris DuBois)
10. "I Can't Trust Myself" (Devin Dawson/Jillian Jacqueline/Brad Warren/Brett Warren)
11. "Prison" (Devin Dawson/Seth Ennis/Josh Kerr)
12. "Dark Horse" (Devin Dawson/Andy Albert)
Dawson grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison in California, drawing inspiration from Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

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). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
