Country music artist and SiriusXM personality Dallas Wayne is a singer, songwriter, radio DJ, voice-over artist, actor and music producer. He has toured throughout North America and Europe, releasing 12 albums of his own, and performing on various compilation and band recordings including the honky-tonk supergroups Heybale! and the TwangBangers, as well as a Grammy-nominated bluegrass album with Special Consensus. Dallas has performed on some of the most hallowed stages in country music, from the Grand Ole Opry and Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic, to appearances on “Country’s Family Reunion” and “Larry’s Country Diner.”
Dallas’ recent project, Songs The Jukebox Taught Me: Volume 1 and Volume 2, pays tribute to classic country music heroes with a fresh collection of standards that he makes his own. Bill Anderson had nothing but kind words to say in regard to Wayne’s latest project: “I’ve often said anyone can trace a picture… it takes a true artist to paint one. Dallas Wayne is an artist, because he takes these old songs and paints them in a totally different light from the way the jukebox originally taught him. My song, ‘Tips Of My Fingers,’ for example, has never been recorded outside of a waltz tempo until now. And it shines… as do all the others… in the hands of a true artist.”
Throughout his career, Dallas has been a champion for classic country music — both in his live performances, and as an on-air personality for SiriusXM’s Willie’s Roadhouse (channel 59) and Outlaw Country (channel 60). He can be heard on SiriusXM: weekdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon Eastern at Willie’s Roadhouse (channel 59), and Tuesday through Friday in Outlaw Country (channel 60) from 10 a.m. to noon Eastern.
A native of Springfield, Missouri, Dallas currently lives in Bristol, Tennessee, the ‘Birthplace of Country Music.’ He has received multiple honors, including Texas Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, the CMA of Texas Choice Award, Ameripolitan Music Awards for DJ of the Year and Honky Tonk Group of the Year (Heybale!), and two-time Academy of Western Artists’ DJ of the Year.
