Dallas Smith

Dallas Smith was best known to me as the lead singer of the rock band Default. I personally have Defaults' first album "The Fallout", which I felt unjustly never peaked in the charts despite the #1 hit "Wasting My Time." That being said I was interested to hear Smith's latest incarnation. Judging from the sold out crowd, and their high energy before Smith even took the stage, that it was going to be a show to remember. 

It was.

People sang along as Smith and his band put out a high performance show that fed into an already high energy crowd. Simply put a good time. If you are a country music fan, Dallas Smith is well worth seeing live as the atmosphere is something in itself. Don't expect cowboy hats, or Nashville theatrics, expect genuine and vocally solid performance.
