Fans became enamored with Devin Dawson when his breakthrough single “All On Me” took over country radio with its sweet lyrics. But Dawson’s musical journey began in Nashville as a student at Belmont University where his cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” and “Style” became a viral hit.
Since then, Dawson has truly made a friend in the city where he got his start, with his most frequented local haunts ranging from his go-to place for a hair cut to his beloved alma mater.
Here are Devin Dawson’s five favorite places in Nashville:
The Fox Bar & Cocktail Club: “One of the coolest vibes, inviting. If people don’t know about it, they need to come hang.”
