Song Premiere: Dallas Moore Shares the Autobiographical “Home Is Where The Highway Is”
Dallas Moore, whose band is the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award winner for “Outlaw Group of the Year”, will bring his latest album, Mr. Honky Tonk, to the masses on March 2nd. Produced by Dean Miller and backed by country luminaries including harmonica legend Mickey Raphael, bassist Michael Rhodes and pedal-steel master Steve Hinson, Mr. Honky Tonk expertly toes the line between Saturday-night hell raising and Sunday-morning God praising to create a timeless entry in the outlaw country canon.
Today, Moore shares one of the album’s tracks, “Home Is Where The Highway Is.” Guided by an old school sound featuring bar-room piano, Raphael’s subtle harmonica, and Moore’s warm, gravelly vocals, the autobiographical tune recounts life on the road and the places a troubadour calls home, leaving the listener with the sense that Moore, who played 327 shows in 2017, wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
“From coast to coast I’ve always been a rambler/I’ll see and do it all before I die/At my old stompin’ grounds in Carolina/And way out west in big Montana skies/They say this land is your land and it’s my land/The only land in life I’ll ever love/From sea to shining sea and all the land in there between made by God in heaven up above”
