Dallas and his wife Jenna recently had a baby girl named Victory. While his wife and daughter have both traveled some with him this year, Moore says that he is often on the road on his own with his band these days, since traveling a great deal can be tough on a baby. But Jenna still runs a good part of his business from home while caring for Victory and continues to play an integral role in Dallas’ career.

Those early days in Ohio are also an important part of Dallas’ story. His mother Madge Moore, a former Buckeye Belle in the ’50s, gifted Dallas a guitar at the age of 16. “Probably to keep me out of trouble,” Dallas said, laughing. An athlete prior to that, Dallas knew pretty quickly that music was his “calling,” and he abandoned sports with little hesitation. Growing up in Norwood, Ohio, he says many of his peers finished high school and went straight to a factory job, but that music was his way out. Ever humble, he says, “You know, everyone has a different story, but that was mine. It’s never too late to play music. It changed my whole life, and I know it’s what I was meant to do.”

In his time on the road, he’s had the honor of touring with some big names, including Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Dean Dillon, among others. Having looked up to many of these musicians for years, he says, “It’s a privilege when you can start calling your heroes friends.” Dallas is already hard at work on his next album, due out likely in spring of 2019. We look forward to seeing Dallas’ continued success. Not only a hard-worker and a family man that gives credit where it’s due, he’s also an easy-going guy and a great story-teller. It’s clear his many fans agree! Catch Dallas Moore performing live at The Hunt Store in Hunt, Texas, on Saturday, December 8, for a show you’ll never forget. Plus, it’s free with dinner or $10 general admission!
