While Dallas Smith was once known as frontman for ’90s alt rockers Default, he has come into his own as a country star.
“ It is creeping up on us,” said Smith, getting ready to open a most sold out Canadian tour with Florida Georgia Line, which stops by the Enmax Centre, April 17.
“ It’s gravy. Folks are starving for these guys (The Florida Georgia Line) to come up here. They’re hungry for it,” said Smith doing press for the tour in Vancouver.
He toured with the Florida Georgia Line last year for 20 dates all over the United States. They begin the Canadian tour in Abbotsford, April 9.
“They are really great guys. I knew them before the tour. We did 20 dates all over the U.S. in New York and Texas. That tour was great. They have such young, energetic crowds. They love to have a lot of fun,” Smith enthused adding he knows them from sharing the same management team and producer.
“They heard what I was doing and liked it and were nice enough to ask me to join them on tour,” he said.
“ So I’m looking forward to being in the same building with them, and being part of it all,” he said.
