Trent Dabbs, Nashville-based artist/songwriter/producer, wants to make a believer out of you.
After witnessing a captivating stripped-down performance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Dabbs was inspired to peel back from the heavy production and release a raw, honest record as a reminder that there is beauty in simplicity. The result is Dabbs’ ninth studio record, Believer, out today, February 10 on Ready Set Records, with early support from outlets including Paste Magazine, Relevant, Taste Of Country and Nashville Lifestyles. Believer is currently featured on the iTunes® main page with a free download of the track, “Goes Without Saying.”
Last night, Dabbs did an album release show with Americana sweetheart, Lori McKenna in Nashville. The evening included a special appearance by ABC’s Nashville star, Sam Palladio, who joined Dabbs for his song “World On Time.”
It’s been over a year since Dabbs has released new solo music. In the past year, he has been working on a variety of projects – co-writing six songs off Ingrid Michaelson’s album, Lights Out, including the massive hit, “Girls Chase Boys” and co-writing and co-producing on Young Summer’s debut, Taken and Elenowen’s January release, For the Taking. Dabbs’ song, “Don’t Put Dirt On My Grave” (co-written with Caitlyn Smith) was one of the featured tunes on this past season of ABC’s Nashville and trail blazing on the charts with the album, Nashville: On The Record, which peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes® Overall Albums Chart.
