Dallas Wayne considers himself lucky to be able to make a living doing something he loves. Some people might say it has more to do with talent than luck. Throughout a career that has taken Dallas around the world as a songwriter, singer, actor, voice-over artist, music producer and radio deejay, he claims he's never had a real job.
A native of Springfield, Missouri, Dallas began performing professionally while in high school, and by the age of 18 he had toured throughout the entire U.S. and Canada. After moving to Nashville, he further developed his vocal style singing demos for many of the top publishing houses in the music industry.
While touring Europe in 1991, Dallas signed a deal to record an album for Texicalli Records. One album soon became six, and Dallas moved to Scandinavia where he became a staff writer for Warner/Chappell Music. After four years living and touring in Europe, Dallas returned to the U.S. and signed a record deal with HighTone Records. In addition to recording two albums of his own on the HighTone label, Dallas was a part of the honky-tonk supergroup, the TwangBangers.
Dallas moved to Austin, Texas in early 2003 where he has enjoyed a vibrant country music scene. In 2005 he released the CD I'm Your Biggest Fan, marking his debut on the Koch Records Nashville label.
Dallas embarked on a new facet of his career in mid-2005 when he joined the family of on-air personalities in Outlaw Country on SIRIUS Satellite Radio. And in Spring of 2006 he added another radio show to his schedule when he signed on as DJ and program/ music director at KHYI 95.3 FM in Dallas, Texas. In recognition of Dallas' work at KHYI, the Academy of Western Artists presented him with a Will Rogers Award for Classic Country Major Market DJ of the Year for 2006.
Early in 2007, Dallas expanded his time on the air at SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio, adding a weekly “Deep in the Heart of Texas” program in Outlaw Country. Later that year, Dallas regrettably gave up his work at KHYI to focus on his music career and his busy schedule on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio where he can be heard on the air in Outlaw Country and at Willie’s Roadhouse, the Texas-based honky-tonk channel. Dallas was awarded a second Will Rogers Award for DJ of the Year in 2009.
Dallas' latest album I’ll Take the Fifth was released on Smith Entertainment records.
In addition to his radio career, songwriting and touring, Dallas also performs with the legendary band Heybale!
Dallas was humbled and honored to be included
among the Ameripolitan Music Awards
winners for 2014 – both as part of honky tonk group Heybale, and as DJ
of the year on SiriusXM.
