Devin Dawson Announces ‘The Pink Slip EP’ To Drop In January

Devin Dawson revealed he’ll be celebrating the new year with a new project, The Pink Slip EP, that will be released Jan. 15. He gave fans a taste of the new six-song project with the new track “Range Rover,” which he released today.

Named for the representation of optimistic freedom showcased in lead track “I Got a Truck,” the Pink Slip EP finds Dawson building on the edgy confidence he pioneered with Dark Horse, but with a sunnier outlook.

“I will always be a dark horse, but I have come a long way from the person I was, and I understand more of what it means to be an artist,” Dawson says. “There are definitely vibes on this EP that I wouldn’t peg for myself, but I like the unexpected nature of doing things that people don’t see coming. I try to reinvent the wheel every single day because I don’t think you ever really arrive, and you can never put your feet up. I want to be honest and vulnerable and take the next step, because I always want to be creating music that’s fresh and different from anything I’ve released before. I’m still in black and white, but the background is a little brighter.”

Dawson hasn’t been a stranger to the charts. He’s currently featured on HARDY’s Top 10 single “One Beer” alongside Lauren Alaina, and “I Got A Truck” and “Range Rover” are the first new solo releases from Dawson since the success of his Grammy-nominated, ACM and CMA Single of the Year, “God’s Country,” that he co-wrote for Blake Shelton. The multi-week No. 1 also landed Dawson his first-ever ACM and CMA award nominations for Song of the Year, adding to his previously earned nods from the ACM, CMT Music, Radio Disney, BMI and MusicRow Awards.
