Dalton Dover has signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, and will release new music on the label’s Mercury Nashville imprint.
Dover first achieved prominence following his appearance on Season 16 of The Voice, where he earned a chair turn from judge Blake Shelton. Two years later, Dover has continued to build his fan base on TikTok, garnering millions of views with his #CatchMeOffGuard series of cover song mashups.
Dover’s songs “You Got A Small Town” and “Baby I Am,” which has earned nearly 500,000 streams, helped the 23-year-old Georgia native earn a place on Spotify’s Hot Country 2022 Artists to Watch, along with a spotlight as Billboard’s February Country Rookie of the Month and a nod as MusicRow’s 2022 Discovery Artist of the Year.
“All of us at UMG have been fans of Dalton for a long time,” says Mike Dungan, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville. “For months our staff has filled the rooms at almost every one of his live performances in Nashville. As we worked our way through the legal process, our four label promotion teams were fighting over which label he would go to and who got to work with him. We are thrilled that he chose to be a member of our family and anxious to release the first taste of music with the Mercury logo on it.”
“I’m so excited to join the Mercury and UMG Nashville family,” shares Dover. “I wouldn’t be here without the support from my wonderful wife and family, my team, and the fans who have listened to and shared the songs we’ve released so far. This is just the beginning, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!”
