VIDEO: Langley star Dallas Smith takes top hits acoustic

A Walnut Grove country music entertainer is looking for participants for an upcoming romantic video.

Stripping away all the electrical enhancements, and going acoustic, Langley country star Dallas Smith is preparing to release a new six-song unplugged EP next week.

The 40-year-old Walnut Grove entertainer is releasing Acoustic Sessions Vol. 1 digitally on March 2, featuring stripped back tracks of his chart-topping #1 hits Autograph, Side Effects, Sky Stays This Blue, and Wastin’ Gas.

The EP will also feature his songs Lifted, as well as And Then Some.

While he’s waiting for that release, just last week he released a brand new video for his romantic single 50/50 – aptly hitting the airwaves on Valentine’s Day.

The video features some of the behind the scenes footage from his 2017 Side Effects Tour, which ushered in crowds of thousands who attended 28 shows in 27 cities across the country.

Mr. Romantic

And in keeping with the romantic theme, Smith also recently put out a call for people who got engaged at one of his concerts, hoping to incorporate some video and or pictures in one of his upcoming videos.

“I’m working on a new music video and want you to be part of it,” he said. “If you have any engagement photos, couple photos, wedding photos, etc.…” Smith said he’s anxious to have his fans “be part of it.”

Those interested can send a photo of themselves and their partner, the date of the engagement or wedding, and where it happened to jenna@604Records.com.

A local couple, Sam Audley and Britt Elam, are among those anxious to submit some pictures for consideration by Smith.

“We did, in fact, use the song Autograph for everything from Britt proposing to me in the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the dancing on stage at the Boys of Fall [fundraising golf tournament and concert], to our wedding invitations, to our first dance, and every so often Britt calls JRfm and dedicates [Smith’s song] to me,” Audley shared with the Langley Advance.

“I’m very lucky,” she said, confirming the Clayton Heights residents are indeed anxious to share a few of their wedding photos with Smith for consideration.
