Dalton Dover is hoping to make his ’90s country heroes proud with the release of his new single, “Bury Me In This Bar.” The fast-rising country star released the new song on March 29 via UMG Nashville/Mercury Records.

Dalton Dover Releases Infectious New Song, “Bury Me In This Bar”

During a recent conversation with his record label, Dover explained that he wrote the song with his country music heroes in mind.

“When we wrote ‘Bury Me In This Bar,’ I wanted to write a song that would make my ‘90s Country heroes proud and my Country Music heroes in general proud, and I feel like we’ve done that with ‘Bury Me In This Bar,’” Dover, who grew up listening to Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Toby Keith and more, explained.

He continued, “It’s fun. If you’re in a bar, drinking a cold beer, you’re just hanging out with your friends and ‘Bury Me In This Bar’ comes on, you’re gonna vibe, and I would like to think y’all would love it just as much fun as we do. I hope that you know, as you guys are listening and whatever you may be doing while you’re listening, you’re having as much fun as we did.”

“Bury Me In This Bar,” which serves as his current single at Country radio, was co-written by Dalton Dover alongside Dan Isbell, Jamie Davis and Benjy Davis, and produced by longtime collaborator Matt McVaney (McV). The steel guitar-laced tune captures the fun and energy found in ’90s country bar anthems like Toby Keith’s “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” Garth Brooks’ “Friends In Low Places,” David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On The Bottle” and Tracy Byrd’s “Watermelon Crawl,” and other songs that just make you want to dance and sing along.

Dover admitted that the tune “is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of writing” and it’s certainly destined to become a fan-favorite among Dover’s fans at his upcoming live shows with its infectious melody and catchy lyrics.

First Showcased The Song At CRS In Nashville

The country hitmaker first showcased the new tune to Country radio and other members of the Country music community at The Ryman Auditorium during the UMG Luncheon at Country Radio Seminar (CRS).

New Dalton Dover EP, Take Me Home: Covers

“Bury Me In This Bar” follows the release of his latest EP, Take Me Home: Covers. Take Me Home: Covers finds Dover embarking on a musical journey, celebrating his roots and paying tribute to the songs that shaped the artist and songwriter he has become.

“My grandfather is the person that introduced me to country music. He’d play his records, and I remember thinking, ‘I want to do that. I want to tell stories and write songs that are relatable to everyone,’” Dover previously shared in a press release. “The songs we chose are timeless, so I wanted to stay faithful to the spirit of each one, but I loved getting to put some of my own style into it too.”

The project includes a cover of Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High On That Mountain” with backing vocals from the 22x GRAMMY winner himself and a rousing performance of Alabama’s “Mountain Music.” Dover first introduced the collection with John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
