Hot on the heels of his career-changing global deal with Sony Music Publishing and Droptine Music Publishing, rising star Dalton Dover dropped his newest track “Damn Good Life.”
The up-and-comer’s single was penned by Dover, Alex Maxwell and Jaxson Free. Listen to “Damn Good Life” here.
“I wanted to write a song that makes people smile. There are plenty of drinkin’ songs, and there are plenty of love songs, but not enough feel-good songs,” said Dover. “When Alex, Jaxson and I sat down, we were having a great day and ‘Damn Good Life’ basically wrote itself. It’s a reminder not to take all the little things for granted in life.”
“I love sharing the songs I write with y’all… when we wrote this song we wanted to write something that makes you feel thankful for the small things, I hope you listen & it puts a smile on your face… love you guys!” Dover shared via an Instagram post.
The country singer’s career is on the ups, as last month Dover was surprised with an offer by hitmaker Blake Shelton to make his Grand Ole Opry debut. Dover was closing out his seven-night Ole Red residency in Nashville when he received a call from Shelton presenting the honor. The Spotify Hot Country 2022 Artist to Watch will take the Opry stage for his debut on December 3.
“Had to take a few hours before I posted something about last night… still kinda speechless honestly, just so thankful & grateful for every opportunity I’ve been blessed with… the love is absolutely overwhelming… words do no justice for how I feel right now…” Dover captioned a video of the special moment.
Dover’s newest release follows his tracks “Hear About A Girl,” “You Got A Small Town” and “Baby I Am.”
Earlier this year, Dover joined Luke Combs at The Bootleggers’ Tailgate Party presented by Whiskey Jam on three special dates: May 21 in Denver at Empower Field, June 4 in Seattle at Lumen Field and July 30 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
Dover is set to join Priscilla Block on her Welcome to the Block Party Tour this fall as support. The tour kicks off on October 13 in Cincinnati, Ohio and wraps up on November 19 in Charleston, South Carolina.
