DeeJay Silver riding country's Night Train (Created June 26, 2013)
Stop us if you've heard this one before. A world-renowned DJ currently touring with country music superstars. ..
Wait. What's that? A DJ touring with the likes of Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Eric Church? Mixing music that falls under the mold of 'party rock, country style'? Just a few years ago, country fans and critics would've raked a guy like Dee Jay (DJ) Silver over the coals for high-energy performances while on the road with the likes of Chris Young, Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Easton Corbin and others. But in 2013, nobody's batting an eye (or an ear) at the man paving the way for new acts to hit the stage and the party circuit.
How does a guy like Dee Jay Silver (real name Silver Ivanov) make it from his native Bulgaria into the inner circle of Nashville? Plenty of persistence, a lot of hard work and well over a decade of playing in all the most famous clubs. Of course, rubbing elbows with the likes of the Swedish House Mafia didn't exactly set him up to be an in-demand name at honky tonks and dive bars, but appearances at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs) and the Country Music Awards (CMAs) certainly helped to move this runaway train in the right direction.
The capstone of this strange journey came on June 4, 2013 when Dee Jay Silver released "Country Club," a four-song EP featuring country mash-ups from some of the genre's biggest stars. We're talking about blends of songs by Alabama, Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen and Love and Theft. He followed up the release with several appearances at the CMA Music Festival, and is currently a special guest on Aldean's "Night Train" tour.
