Named by the CMA as being “Who New To Watch ”, performing at some of the largest Music Festivals on the west coast, and continually performing to packed venues, Dave Russell is truly starting to hit his stride as one of Nashville’s Newest Recording Artists.
Dave has shared billing with such great artists as Glorianna, Brett Eldredge, James Otto, Justin Moore, Steve Holy,and James Wesley! Along with his shows on the west coast, Dave is always as favorite at CMA Fanfest every year with hundreds of people continually lined up to meet with him and get autographs. Part of Dave’s appeal is in fact, the “Down home attitude and accessibility” he always shows his fans. “I think that it is a true blessing from God that I get to do what I love and share my songs with people. It is even more a blessing to have people want to find out more about me and I just genuinely enjoy talking with my fans. It doesn�t take long for them to become friends!!” With Dave’s band of musicians, he always is willing to at times, to stop the show to be able to interact with his crowd and loves the fact his shows are always evolving and never the same show twice.
Dave is able to cover not only todays contemporary favorites but has an extensive library of some of the “ Greats of Country Music”. Dave’s vocal ability to Impersonate many different voices landed him on the nationally released video game, CMT Presents Karaoke Revolution Country. Dave provided the voice for 17 different Male Country Artists such as Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Chesney and others with a notable inclusion of Johnny Cash. It is requested just about every show that Dave performs a Johnny Cash tune and he never disappoints in his execution of it.

This true, “good ole country boy from North Carolina” continually sells out shows all over with appearances in California, Nevada, Washington, Texas, Miss and Tennessee. Dave has been called the consummate entertainer and works hard to keep his shows up tempo, engaging and just plain fun!!!
Dave’s current CD, Middle of Nowhere from Cupit Entertainment was released on Feb, 14th 2016. Dave chose that date because it was his chance to share his “ True Love ” with all his fans!! The CD was produced and many of the songs co-written with Jerry Cupit, the president of the Record Label. From Dave’s heartfelt song about the passing of his mother at the age of 13 to his fun loving song about Summer Girls, the CD runs the gauntlet of real country music. Dave even brings in those “ Closeted Country Fans” with his song, “How Country is that”. A song about how “it doesn�t matter where you live, what you drive, or anything. What matters is how you look at your love of America, Family, God, and all the core principles of this great Country.”
During the past election Cycle Dave’s song “ Where the Money Goes” was a huge hit that resonated with everyone who, no matter what their Political AFFLICTION !! Dave puts it as “a song for everyone who wonders about all the money they have coming in and going out as opposed to the GUBNIT’s money going in and out.” So if you are looking for a great Rockin’ country Band, with an award winning Vocalist, who will put the people in the seats only after they are so tired from dancing, then be sure to check out Dave Russell.
