Dawson emphasizes these different influences drastically with his live shows, which prove to be very high energy and gives “a little something for everyone”.
In an interview Dawson describes himself as “a songwriter first, an entertainer second, and a singer third”, which he later explains; “Everything has to start at the lyrics, that’s where I put my soul and my emotions out there, but once you have that foundation you have to put those words in a package that creates a fun and interesting experience for listeners and fans to experience live. At the end of the day I love performing, running around on stage and I feed off of the energy of the crowd. The fact is though… I can’t sing like George Straight or Kenny Chesney, and I can’t play guitar like Brad Paisley, but what I can do is engage a crowd and tell truth through my music and make everyone in the audience feel like they are right on stage with me. That is what I bring to the table.”
