There’s no argument that Nashville songwriter Dallas Davidson is on a hot streak, writing hit after hit, and Tuesday, Oct. 7, Davidson, along with co-writers and friends Lee Brice and Rob Hatch, celebrated their 2014 CMA Song of the Year nomination for the RIAA platinum certified No. 1 hit “I Don’t Dance” at East Ivy Mansion in Nashville, Tenn. Davidson, who received his 19th No. 1 in August, has already broken Top 10 on Country charts with his latest hit, “Small Town Throwdown,” performed by Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Thomas Rhett.
Dee Jay Silver took a night off from his fall tour, which he kicked off last weekend in Las Vegas, as well as his syndicated radio show “Country Club” that airs from coast to coast on Friday and Saturday nights, to take part in the celebration. Silver kept the party going by spinning remixes of Davidson’s 19 No.1s including “Boys ‘Round Here,” “That’s My Kind of Night,” “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and many more.
Troy Tomlinson and the Sony ATV team surprised Davidson with a plaque commemorating his “19 No. 1s and Counting,” adding that if No.1s were counted by sales, it’d be at least Davidson’s 38th No. 1. Representatives from BMI and Davidson’s management team were there to celebrate Davidson as well as his brother, sister and wife, who is expecting their first child.
Davidson made a heartfelt speech expressing his appreciation for the support he receives from his family, his team and Nashville as a whole.
Davidson is currently out on the road with Ben Hayslip and Rhett Akins, known collectively as the Peach Pickers, finishing up the last leg of Luke Bryan’s annual Farm Tour.
