Dee Jay Silver is the only DJ with a Nashville recording contract. That being said he’s regarded as the top live DJs not only in country music but in music in general. His ability to connect with the audience and give them exactly what they want to hear is what separates him from the rest. As he’s fine tuned his skills he’s expanded his outputs. This past year, while on tour with Brad Paisley, Silver was brought up on back to do a back and forth as a main part of Brad’s set. Additionally he launched a syndicated radio show and podcast called Country Club. The weekly program features Silver mixing some of the hottest songs in country music just the way you want to hear them.
We caught up with Silver and chatted about how he got his start, one crazy night at Fenway Park with Jason Aldean, and much more!
Dallas Smith might be new to country music, but he’s certainly not new to music. After ten years as the lead singer of the rock group Default, Smith transitioned into a country music. The genre was becoming exactly what he loved – lots of guitar based high energy anthems that allowed him to really connect. After making a trip down to Nashville in 2009 with Joey Moi (Producer Florida Georgia Line & Jake Owen), Smith began working on his debut country album.
Since then he has become a staple in Canadian country music with five straight top ten hits. His debut U.S. single “Tippin’ Point” reached the peak position on SiriusXM The Highway Hot 45 countdown and has gone on to sell over a hundred thousand copies worldwide. He recently completed work on his third EP Lifted which hits iTunes tomorrow and includes “Wastin’ Gas” a song that Music Row called “terrifically exciting.”
We caught up with Dallas Smith this week to talk about his shift from rock to country, life on the road with Florida Georgia Line, and of course his new EP Lifted.
