Dan Davidson, he of the ridiculously entertaining music videos, multi-genre experience, a Gold record, and multiple award wins is finally ready to release his debut country album, Songs For Georgia.
We’ve had the chance to meet Dan on a couple of occasions, we’ve seen him play live, and now we’ve had the opportunity to listen through his six song EP (on repeat) – and guess what, it’s a banger!
Davidson is adding two new tracks to previous singles, Say We Did, Barn Burner, 2015’s Unkiss Her, and the Gold certified, Found. And as the album plays, Dan’s fans are going to find themselves singing along to the new songs just as much as they have been to the radio hits they’ve gotten used to over the last 18 months.

To say that the former Tupelo Honey rocker has successfully made the move to country is accurate. It’s clear to see that the fans and industry have accepted him as independant artist, with shows across Canada, award nominations at home in Alberta, and from the Canadian Country Music Association.
Radio play of songs from Songs For Georgia (Found, Barn Burner, and most recently Say We Did) are also proof that country music has embraced Dan Davidson as one of their own. That’s not an easy ticket to punch, but Davidson has put in the work and produced a sound and energy that has connected.
If we have any nitpicking to do about Dan Davidson’s debut offering, it’s that we want more. The six tracks on Songs For Georgia go too quickly, leaving us wanting more songs to sing and tap our toes to. Here’s hoping that there will be a full length follow-up in 2018.
With that said however, we do have a special bonus track from Dan Davidson’s library that we can share with you. Hit play and watch Dan’s performance of Laugh When You Lie, live from Rod, Gun & Barbers in Parkdale, Toronto.

If I were a betting man (which I kind of am) I’d be willing to wager that this won’t be the last country album from Dan Davidson. And If was told that a whole lot of country fans were hoping I was right, I wouldn’t be surprised by that at all.
Songs For Georgia drops on Friday, so be ready to hit up iTunes, and subscribe to Dan Davidson on Spotify now to make sure you’re ready for it. We’d recommend that you do those things. You’re not going to be disappointed.
