Dallas Smith Returns to Studio to Complete Debut Country Album, “Tippin’ Point”
Dallas' latest release from his Tippin’ Point EP is “A Girl Like You.”
For the past year or so, Dallas Smith has been spending quite a bit of time in Nashville, putting forth the effort on his full-length debut album as a country singer. Last week, Dallas spent several days in Music City, where he recorded another batch of songs with producer Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) for the project, which is slated for release this fall.
“We’ve got between six and eight songs that we’re digging in on,” Dallas told Country Weekly from the studio. “We spent some time at Ocean Way, and that was my first time in that studio. I was just blown away. I didn’t realize we were recording in an old church until I saw the stained-glass windows and all that stuff.”
Dallas already has experienced some success in the country market with his debut single, “Tippin’ Point,” which has been certified platinum in Canada for sales exceeding 80,000 copies. Dallas’ latest release from his Tippin’ Point EP is “A Girl Like You.” As far as his next single, the former frontman of Canadian rock group Default already has narrowed it down to three songs for consideration.
“Now that we’ve got those out of the way, I’m going to head back to Vancouver because I’ve got a whole bunch of shows up in my home country,” said the singer, adding that he will return to Nashville in September to put the final touches on all of the tunes.
This latest trip to Nashville also gave Dallas the opportunity to introduce his wife, Kristen, and their 7-month-old daughter, Vayda, to the town and the studio. “I’ve be parading her around like a proud dad,” said Dallas, beaming. “It’s been nice!”
