Devin Dawson has released The Pink Slip EP Live, a six-song collection that was recorded during a full-band, no audience set last year in Nashville in attempt to keep music alive during COVID-19.
“In a year where live music was pretty much wiped off the face of the earth, this EP was a muse for my creative heart,” explains Dawson. “We recorded this project in late August 2020, still in the middle of the ‘unknown’ and dreadfully missing the connection of an audience and the one of a kind feeling of playing live. This was the first time my band and I had played these songs since we finished recording them earlier that year and was the first time I had really sang in months. The first time I got to have a taste of the ‘live show feeling’ that I had probably taken for granted. I’m so glad we got to immortalize this moment. It will always remind me how lucky I am to be an artist, to be able to play live, and to be surrounded by the best band and fans in the world.”
The Pink Slip EP was originally released in January and marked the first new music from the Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic Records artist since his debut album, Dark Horse, in 2018.
Dawson most recently topped the charts again as a featured artist alongside Lauren Alaina on Hardy‘s “One Beer,” which received a nomination for Music Event of the Year at the 56th ACM Awards. This follows the massive success of his Grammy-nominated, ACM, and CMA Single of the Year, “God’s Country,” that he co-wrote for country superstar Blake Shelton. The multi-week No. 1 also landed Dawson his first-ever ACM and CMA award nominations for Song of the Year.
The Pink Slip EP Live is available on all digital platforms now.
