Devin Dawson just dropped his album “Dark Horse” and it’s up to #5 on the “Billboards” Top Country Albums this week. A huge accomplishment, especially for a new guy!
But how he blew up is an interesting story, he and a friend posted a video on YouTube, and guess who liked it? Taylor Swift.
In 2014, Devin and his friend Louisa Wendorff did a mashup of “Blank Space” and “Style” and it went viral.
Devin said, “Somehow, Taylor saw it, tweeted it, facebooked it, google-plussed it….all those apps. She stuck her neck out and was like ‘Hey, I like this’ and it caught on. It was the most incredible, indescribable moment in our lives.”
He said “I still haven’t met her to this day, but i hope to say hey and give her a hug one day…or write a song with her, do a duet or something.”
