Fast-rising country star Dalton Dover released his highly anticipated first single via UMG Nashville/Mercury Records, “Giving Up On That.” Listen to the track HERE.

“It feels incredible to finally be able to share ‘Giving Up On That’ with the world,” shared Dover. “I performed it during my Grand Ole Opry debut, and for it to be my first official single with Mercury Records makes this song even more special to me.”

He continued, “I hope everyone can relate to it, as we’ve all had those relationships where we regret not bringing our best selves to the table until it’s too late, and I hope it finds the folks that need to hear it most.”

Penned by the Georgia native alongside Adam Craig and Josh Pierce, “Giving Up On That” features Dover’s sharp vocals as he recounts the screw-ups that pushed his long-gone lover away before detailing the steps he’s taken to show how strong his loyalty is and how he wants to try again.

“I pray it ain’t too late/ For you to see what I’ve turned into/ I just wish my workin’ on me is workin’ on you/ But since you said goodbye/ And hit me with them taillights/ I swear I’ve changed everything but your mind/ Cause girl I’m giving up on/ Drinking as much as I used to/ When I had you/ Giving up on/ Just saying I’m gonna change/ I’ve given up on passing the blame/ Everything made you walk out on what we had/ But when it comes to wanting you back/ I ain’t ever giving up on that,” sings Dover on the heart-wrenching song.

Next month, the “Hear About A Girl” singer will make his international debut for the C2C: Country to Country Festival’s CMA Songwriters Series before taking the stage alongside Chase Rice on Rice’s Way Down Yonder Tour this April. 

The Way Down Yonder Tour kicks off on March 3 at Laughlin, NV’s Harrah’s Laughlin Casino & Hotel and will hit iconic venues such as Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the House of Blues in Boston and Athens’ Georgia Theatre.

“Last year, I brought my family, and we walked through on the tour at the Opry. Little did I know that a year later, I’d be making my Opry debut. It’s pretty special, to say the least,” Dover shared of the full-circle moment in an interview before he took the iconic stage.

The singer also shared the stage with Luke Combs on Combs’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium show in Atlanta, GA and joined Priscilla Block on her Welcome To The Block Party Tour.
