As current single “Giving Up On That” continues climbing the charts, MusicRow-dubbed “master country talent,” Dalton Dover releases a new Friday night anthem with “Night To Go” via UMG Nashville/Mercury Records.


“When I heard this song for the first time, it took me back to being a kid. This is the kind of music I grew up listening to,” shares Dover. “I wanted to do something that would make my ‘90s Country heroes proud.”

Written by Cole Taylor, Trea Landon, Shane Minor and Michael Carter, “Night To Go” is a nostalgic ‘90s barn burner with copious steel guitar, as Dover showcases his powerful voice and delivers the perfect night in the country:

It ain’t parking with your buddies at the same ol’ bar

Drinking all the same ol’ drinks

It ain’t hangin’ at the house all by yourself

Staring at a football game

Well there’s a million different ways to burn some moonlight

But if you asked me there ain’t nothing like


Pick her up at seven, she climbs on in

Ride around a little to a country song

Pull into that county line and go

And go and get our cold beer on

Lean in for a kiss underneath the stars

Til the sun shows up, just hold her close

That’s about as good as a good ol’ boy

Would ever want a night to go


Dover’s first official single “Giving Up On That” debuted as the most-added song at Country radio, with MusicRow calling it “a solid winner,” boasting, “this power ballad of regret and yearning gives him a super showcase for his dynamic, whisper-to-a-scream vocal ability,” and of Dover, “make this man a star.”

Ahead of Mother’s Day, the Georgia native paid tribute to his mother with “I Wouldn’t Be Here” and delivered a preview of the song as he shared his mom’s reaction to hearing it for the first time on his Instagram.

Named a Pandora 2023 Artist to Watch, an Amazon Music 2023 Breakthrough Artist to Watch: Country Class and a member of CMT’s LISTEN UP 2023 Class, Dover made his international debut earlier this year at C2C: Country to Country Festival’s CMA Songwriters Series before joining Chase Rice on the Way Down Yonder Tour. This summer, the Georgia native performed across four stages at CMA Fest, including the Nissan Stadium Platform Stage, and played Luke Combs’ Whiskey Jam Bootleggers Tailgate Party at Gillette Stadium in July. Dover is currently on the road with select dates supporting Tyler Hubbard, Parker McCollum and Priscilla Block among festival performances. For more information and tickets, visit
