Dalton Dovers New Single Is A Throwback To His Musical Heroes


When new artist, Dalton Dover dropped his debut single, “Giving Up On That,” it ended up being the most-added track at Country Radio. It’s also the title of his new 8-song EP, as well as the name of his headlining tour that he kicked off this week.

Dalton has another single from that EP. And when we asked him about it, he said he had his musical heroes in mind when he wrote it:

“‘Bury Me In This Bar,’ man, we wrote this song, and I grew up listening to artists like Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Conway (Twitty). You know, as I grew up I started getting into Brooks & Dunn and Joe Diffie and Toby Keith. I mean the list just goes on and on. 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.’ 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.” SOUNDCUE :43
