About Dallas Smith: Canadian Gone Country
The list of famed Canadian country singers is a long one. There's k.d. Lang, Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot, Shania Twain, Terry Clark and Paul Brandt… just to name a few. Now, another newcomer named Dallas Smith, once known as the lead vocalist for alternative rock band Default, has also joined the country crowd.
Smith, who lists Reba McEntire and The Judds among his influences, signed his first record deal when he was just 21 years old. But it seemed perhaps that he was destined for something more than being the lead singer of a multi-platinum rock outfit. He jumped right in (pardon the pun) to the country music scene with the release of "Jumped Right In" on May 22, 2012 with 604 Records. It generated five charted singles on the Canadian Hot 100, was nominated for Country Album of the Year at the 2013 Juno Awards, and was also nominated as Album of the Year for the 2013 Canadian Country Music Awards.
Fast forward a year and Smith's country career was hitting warp speed. He signed with Republic Nashville and released his first American single, "Tippin Point" written by the famed duo Florida Georgia Line and Jaren Johnston. Next came his "Tippin' Point" EP, then followed it with the release of singles "Slow Rollin" and "A Girl Like You" in the spring and summer of 2014.
Smith is currently working on the finishing touches to his second full-length studio album. He released the first single off that project, "Wastin' Gas" on October 28th.
