Dallas Moore (from the album Mr Honky Tonk available on Sol Records)
Country music steps through the door proud of its classic look and style as Dallas Moore introduces “Mr. Honky Tonk” on the title track for his recent release. The songs become a portal that leads into a classic country saloon, the sound of Mr. Honky Tonk an old friend that offers a seat in the glow of neon and a hand for a spin around the sawdust. Staging the album with backdrops that match the views outside the windshield Dallas Moore namechecks cities from sea to shining sea in “Home is Where the Highway Is” as young love finds fertile ground to grow in “Texahio” and a Country Rock’n’Roll rhythm hammers nails into a hurting head for “Killing Me Nice and Slow”.
Dallas Moore and band entered into the recording of Mr. Honky Tonk with plans for the title track to be the focus of an E.P. The radio success of the tune, along with the sounds that producer Dean Miller (son of Roger Miller) was getting in Music City’s Baird Music Group studio expanded into a full album. Forty years into beats being a part of music, Pop Country adds rap to its songs in an effort to be more current. Dallas Moore shows how to spit and flow in a way that blends the genres, hitting the target with a spoken/sung rap about the life behind the microphone with “Shoot Out the Lights”. A relationship receives a wake-up call as lines are drawn in love with “Kisses from You” as Dallas Moore toasts his decisions while dealing out a personal resume in “You Know the Rest” and guides Mr Honky Tonk down a long stretch of road unsure of a destination yet confident that the road isn’t a lost highway, just “Somewhere Between Bridges”.
