Country artist Dallas Remington is an impressive, passionate young talent who is working towards establishing herself in the industry. Speaking to The Crush as part of the interview series for the Ladybug Festival , Dallas takes us through her journey, so far, her reaction to being included in this year’s line-up, her experience doing virtual concerts and her advice to aspiring musicians in the industry
1) Tell me about your music and your journey so far!
I’m a Country Music Artist, originally from Kentucky but I now call Nashville, Tennessee home. I began pursuing a career in the music industry at the young age of 11. I’ve literally grown up in the industry - from moving to Nashville at age 15, to releasing my first single to Country Radio when I was 17, to now touring all over the United States and sharing my music around the world. I can’t wait to see where this journey goes next!
2) What was your reaction when you were added to this year’s lineup at the Ladybug Festival? What are your thoughts on this year’s Ladybug Festival particularly as it’s been moved online?
I am super excited to be a part of The LadyBug Festival for my second year now. We played the festival in Wilmington last year and had an absolute blast. When Jeremy and the team contacted me about this year’s festival, I was so happy to be included in this amazing event that helps support so many women in the music industry! The team at Gable Music Ventures/The LadyBug Festival always give 100% to make whatever event they are doing the absolute best! This year is especially awesome because we can now reach so many more people. It’s an honor to be apart of a Worldwide festival to support women in music!
3) What’s your opinion in general about the trend of livestream concerts and festivals? Do you think this trend is here to stay as a part of the music industry?
While my favorite thing to do is tour the country playing my music, I have loved switching to virtual shows. I have had so many amazing platforms, including The LadyBug Festival, reach out to me to do takeovers and online concerts over the past few months. Without them, I literally wouldn’t have been able to do what I love. I will continue doing virtual concerts as long as people tune in.
4) As a woman in the industry, what are some challenges you’ve faced particularly when it comes to playing festivals that Ladybug has helped break down through their efforts?
Being both an independent and female artist, it has been very beneficial to work with organizations like The LadyBug Festival who open doors and create events focused on females in the Music Industry.
5) What’s one message or piece of advice you’d give other women who are trying to find a place in the music industry?
My advice is to own who you are. We are all unique individuals and I believe it is very important to stay true to yourself. Play the music YOU love and be the person you want to be. I was told at an early age to “be the deal”. Figure out who you want to be and spend the time to develop it.
6) Who are your personal inspirations?
A couple of my personal inspirations are Loretta Lynn and Taylor Swift. Both of these women went for their dreams and didn’t let anyone stop them from achieving them, despite the odds.
7) What are your future goals?
My goal has always been to travel playing my music. I hope to continue writing songs, playing shows, and creating music to share with the world.
