Hannah Dasher: What Country Music’s Been Missing

Lyric-driven, rock, edgy, Country. Damn. Music.

“She’s like ‘Dolly on Cocaine’,” says hit-writer, producer and The Cadillac Three front man, Jaren Johnston. “Hannah’s unmistakable voice and personality is what I feel this genre desperately needs. She’s a rockstar plain and simple.”

Hannah Dasher is a singer, for sure. Her songwriting skills are equally badass. She’s the only female songwriter that made it onto Brad Paisley’s new Love and War album, which is a very tough cut to score, by industry standards. Her main focus however, has been on her debut record, and the project can’t come soon enough.

Hannah recently released three songs from her upcoming album, Heavy, a project being produced by Johnston and Little Louder Music’s Oscar Charles. My personal favorite, “1990s Heartbreak”, is incredibly clever. It’s fresh, nostalgic, and is a play-on-repeat single that’s just screaming to be on the Sirius XM’s The Highway. “Let Me In” is a banger, and it’s a gutsy nod to fellow dreamers who deserve a shot. The track features Johnston’s vocals, heavy guitars, and The Cadillac Three’s own Kelby Ray on pedal steel bass.

Try keeping a straight face while listening to the first release, “Drinkin Out Loud”. With mentions of Tinder, fake boobs, and hitting on hot gay men, it hits close to home for all of us who’ve said or done too much while under the influence. Pick up Hannah Dasher’s music on iTunes here and give “1990s Heartbreak” and “Let Me In” a listen below. Now. You’re damn welcome.
