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. A native of Springfield, Missouri, Dallas is a singer, songwriter, radio DJ, voice-over artist, actor and music producer. His latest album project Coldwater, Tennessee was released on April 22, 2022 on the BFD/Audium Nashville label, with distribution via Sony Orchard. Produced by the legendary Buddy Cannon, the album is a collection of all-original songs that showcases the depth of Dallas' songwriting and the range of his vocal talent.

Dallas has performed throughout North America and Europe, releasing 13 albums of his own, and performing on various compilation and band recordings including the honky-tonk supergroups Heybale! and the TwangBangers, as well as a Grammy-nominated bluegrass album. He began performing professionally while in school before moving to Nashville, where he developed his vocal style singing demos for the top music publishing houses and started songwriting. While touring Europe in the early 90s, Dallas signed a record deal and soon moved to Scandinavia where he was a staff songwriter for Warner/Chappell Music. After four years living and touring in Europe, Dallas returned to the U.S. and signed with HighTone Records.

He later relocated to Austin, TX, releasing albums on the Koch Nashville and Smith Entertainment labels. In 2016 and 2018 he released a popular collection of classic country songs on two albums, Songs The Jukebox Taught Me, Volume 1 and Volume 2, on Heart of Texas Records. This collection includes duets with Willie Nelson, Jeannie Seely, Darrell and Mona McCall, and Paula Nelson.

Dallas got his start in radio in 1989, drawing on his many years as a performer. He solidified his radio career when he joined Outlaw Country on Sirius Radio in 2005. A year later he accepted a position at KHYI 95.3 FM in Dallas, Texas, where he served as Program Director and morning drive-time DJ until the end of 2007. After the merger of Sirius and XM in 2008, Dallas became On-Air Personality and Associate Format Manager for the Texas-based honky-tonk channel Willie’s Place, which later became Willie’s Roadhouse.
