Devin Dawson grew up Country and tried other things for a while, but we are glad he found his way back.

Devin was absolutely amazing at Secret Star Wednesday night. His hit All On Me got the crowd singing along, and his performance of the title track from his album Darkhorse was stunning. For Devin, Country has always been his first love. But for a time, Devin did try other things and spent some time in a metal band. We got to catch up backstage at Proctor's to talk about that experience, why so many Country singers list John Mayer as an influence and the power of a great Country song.
