About Dalton Dover

Lauded by MusicRow as a “master country talent”, Dalton Dover’s debut US radio single, ‘Giving Up On That’, was the most-added track at US Country Radio upon its debut with 60 first week adds, and it can be found on his latest EP, Never Giving Up On That, featuring eight tracks including ‘Night To Go’, ‘Baby I Am’, ‘Hear About A Girl’ and more.

Dover made his Grand Ole Opry debut in December 2022, followed by his international debut in 2023 at C2C: Country to Country Festival’s CMA Songwriters Series, before joining Chase Rice on the Way Down Yonder Tour in the US. By the age of 16, Dover had picked up a guitar and started teaching himself to play, yet it was his grandfather who turned him on to country music – in particular, artists such as Keith Whitley, Rhett Akins, Joe Diffie and Steve Wariner.

Performances at local bars soon followed along with sharing covers of some of his favourite songs on TikTok. It was there he caught the ear of producer Matt McV and A&R veteran and founder of Droptine, Jim Catino, who quickly signed him up. His debut track, ‘You Got a Small Town’, produced by McV, quickly garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, MusicRow, Country Now and Wide Open Country. With his debut and its follow-up, ‘Baby I Am’, earning notable playlisting, Dover was named a Spotify Hot Country 2022 Artist to Watch along with a spotlight as Billboard’s February Country Rookie of the Month and a nod for MusicRow’s 2022 Discovery Artist of the Year.
