She may have relocated to Nashville aged 15 to pursue her dreams of a country music career, but Dallas Remington will always be a proud Kentucky girl from a fifth-generation farming family at heart… and as she says in her new single which was released last Friday “I really don’t mind that my Kentucky’s showing”!
Yes, “White Trash Heart” which Dallas co-wrote with Nancy Deckant, Lauren Spring and Cyndi Limbaugh Torres during a writing retreat in January unapologetically tells what it’s like to be a country girl and is one of those songs that came from a real life experience, born after a night Dallas spent in a small town in Missouri. She always thought she was a bit different from her friends when it came to the “types” of men they liked, and when a wild, shirtless farm boy in overalls came walking up to her that evening she knew it was true!
As Dallas explains. “While talking to all the girls before our morning songwriting session, I told them about a crazy weekend I had on the road a few months earlier and about a guy I ran into. I remember saying ‘I don’t know why I was so attracted to him and why I can’t forget that weekend’ ” . She adds that the fun song was “born when I realised I needed to embrace that part of me and my Kentucky roots”.
“Seeing how ‘ White Trash Heart’ is connecting with people is great. This song comes from a real place, and we hope the world enjoys it as much as we did when we wrote it” noted co-writer Nancy, while Lauren describes the release as a “blue collar anthem for the girls… Dallas is fearless about owning exactly who she is and turned a punchline into a thing of pride with this song”.
Produced by Corey Lawson and mastered by Harold LaRue Mastering, the song was recorded at Claw Sound Studios in Nashville, with Cody Waggett on drums, Brandon Roberts on electric guitar , Corey Lawson on electric guitar, acoustic guitar and banjo and lap steel contributed by Smith Curry.Alexa Slaymaker added background vocals.
