Travis Denning


At today’s visit with the Universal Music Group staff, Travis Denning was surprised with a plaque for the Gold RIAA certification of “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.” The song, which recalls all the joy and anxiety of being underage and his own experiences with a fake ID, was written by Travis, Jon Randall and Jessi Alexander. The track was the Georgia native’s debut single, and is his second highest streaming track to date.

“When I found out the song went Gold, it was an affirmation that I knew this song was a great introduction to my career,” said Denning. “It is so personal to me, and a big part of my life and I knew a lot of people could relate to it. It is nice to reflect and look back on the early parts of my career and what’s led to right now.  It’s super cool and I’m grateful and I’m proud to have a plaque that has a Georgia town on it!”

Denning, who’s current track “Strawberry Wine And A Cheap Six Pack” is out now, is in the studio working on his forthcoming project and is touring fairs and festivals throughout the summer.

Audio / Travis Denning talks about the true story behind his gold-certified song, "David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs."


Travis Denning (DAPFPS) OC: …about this song. :50
“A friend of mine I went to high school with, he was one of my best friends in high school, he was going to school at University of Georgia. He went out one night and while he was out, he found an id on the floor of the bar, and he called me and said, ‘Hey man. It kind of looks a lot like you – looks like a skinny white boy with a buzzed haircut.’ So, he gave me that id, and that ultimately led to about a year-and-a-half of my life where like I was that guy, and that’s what I used to go to the bar, to buy beer at the gas station, you know whatever it was. And I think that’s when we wrote the song, I told my story. I told my version of the story, and what’s so amazing is now that it’s out and people are hearing it and connecting with it, you find out that it’s everybody’s story. We all did the same thing with our fake id, and I think that’s what’s special about this song.”
