Since moving to Music City, Dodd has opened for Sam Hunt, Old Dominion, Jake Owen, Corey Smith, Cole Swindell, Rodney Atkins and recently for Sister Hazel, which was especially meaningful. “Opening up for Sister Hazel’s sold out show at the Georgia Theatre in Athens (Georgia) has to be one of my favorite moments onstage,” Dodd offered. “I earned my music business degree from UGA so it was one of those full circle moments.”
His musical journey has him weaving seamlessly between Country, Pop and Americana, with themes that speak to the heart of Friday night, as well as Monday morning. As a songwriter, he can be sweetly nostalgic and equally rambunctious.
“The Reason,” released in June 2018 has gone on to garner more than 3MM streams across the various music services. It was included in multiple playlists on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Pandora and YouTube. The video, which features Dodd’s wife was featured on CMT’s “Must-See Indies You Need To Know” and the “12-Pack Countdown.” Wide Open Country called the song “heartfelt and anthemic.”
Dodd’s latest release, “If We Were A Song,” was directly inspired by both love and his live show. “So many times, my wife and I will be in the car and a song will come on that makes us say, ‘we are so that song, or what would we sound like if we were a song.”. I had the title for the song for about a year and was just waiting for the right day to write it and to write it with the right people.”
