Dallas Smith is currently one of country music’s hottest newcomers, and his highly anticipated EP, TIPPIN’ POINT, hits stores today. The six-song EP was produced by Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) and features the single “Tippin’ Point,” co-written by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard and The Cadillac Three‘s Jaren Johnston. The track has already sold 100,000 digital copies and set the record for being the fastest Canadian country single to go GOLD.

“I’m so excited to share this new music with Country fans,” says Dallas Smith. “I wanted this EP to have lots of energy and feel like you were at a live show. It’s meant to be cranked up!”

The EP is Smith’s debut U.S. release on Big Loud Mountain Records/Republic Nashville and features fan-favorites “Slow Rollin’,” “Wrong About That” and “Nothin’ But Summer.”

Smith’s energetic live shows and compelling tunes have caught the attention of headlining acts; music legend Bob Seger previously selected him for a coveted opening slot on his Canadian tour. This Spring, he’ll join Florida Georgia Line’s HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR in Western Canada.

REVIEW: Chad Brownlee & Dallas Smith in Ottawa

BOTF_Tour_TCcopy12

Last night (11/05), Canadian singers Dallas Smith and Chad Brownlee performed one heck of a show in Ottawa. What a treat! This country girl has seen too many shows to count from all different genres. But this particular show stood out and will be one I’ll remember for quite some time.

To review this show in just a few paragraphs seems unjust. In fact, it was difficult to take notes because I found myself just wanting to enjoy the show. With that being said, there were definitely many highlights of the show that are worth noting.
