With a title like “I Got A Truck,” it would be easy to dismiss Devin Dawson’s new single as just another country song about a pickup, but it’s far from that.

Out now, “I Got A Truck” is an inspirational anthem about chasing dreams. Inspired by a late-night conversation with country music icon Tim McGraw, the song was written solely by Dawson and tells a story that so many can relate to.

“As someone who writes songs every single day, I don’t ever take any inspiration for granted,” Dawson explains. “Sometimes you use tricks you’ve learned along the way to kick start that inspiration and other times it just lands right in your lap. This song is the latter. I’m fired up that I get the chance to be the one to help tell this story – because when it’s this real, honest and true, the rest is easy. I found so much of myself in this story and in this song and I can’t wait to hear how other people find their story in it as well.”

The song comes the celebrated singer/songwriter moves into the Top 20 as a featured artist on HARDY’s hit single, “One Beer,” which also features vocals from Lauren Alaina.

“I Got A Truck” is Dawson’s first new release since his critically acclaimed debut album, Dark Horse, which spawned the Platinum-certified hit “All On Me.”
