Dallas Moore’s new album, Mr. Honky Tonk, is filled with songs about hometowns, drinkin’, and heartbreak — a full-blooded American country compilation definitely worth a listen.
Produced by Dean Miller — he’s worked with Chris Stapleton, Alison Krauss, and Merle Haggard — and backed by a plethora of master performers (including harmonica legend Mickey Raphael, famed Nashville session bassist Michael Rhodes, and pedal-steel pro Steve Hinson), the LP stems from the creative writing mind of outlaw troubadour Moore.
An award-winning songwriter of No. 1 hits like “Texas Tornado,” “Crazy Again,” and “Blessed Be the Bad Ones,” Moore does most of his writing out on the open road.
“I do the vast majority of my writing while I’m out riding my Harley-Davidson Road King,” Moore says. “When I’m alone on a long ride, it’s really the only time I'm free to let my mind open up and wander. The lyrics and melodies seem to come out of the wind and into my mind.”
