Dawson slates headlining tour
Monday, August 20, 2018
– Devin Dawson will return to the road for his first headlining tour this fall, he announced today.
Starting Nov. 1 in Columbia, S.C., the Stray Off Course tour will feature yet-to-be-announced special guests and continue through the middle of December .
Dawson recently released the official music video for "Asking For A Friend," the second single from his "Dark Horse" debut disc. The song describes a character longing to repair a damaged relationship, but lacking the courage to ask for forgiveness. Using a heavily stylized, noir set and camera trickery, the video is set in a surreal "bar" where each representation of a "friend" is played by Dawson himself.
Tour dates are:
Nov. 1 Columbia, SC
Nov. 2 Savannah, GA
Nov. 3 Rome, GA
Nov. 9 Detroit, MI
Nov. 10 Buffalo, NY
Dec. 7 Arlington, TX
Dec. 8 Baton Rouge, LA
Dec. 15 Pocolo, OK

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
