Devin Dawson makes a bold introduction with his debut album, Dark Horse (Jan. 19.) The California native, who grew up close to Folsom Prison, wrote each of the project's 12 tracks, but the most personal song almost didn't make the record. In an interview with Taste of Country ahead of the album's release, Dawson explained how the title track, "Dark Horse," came to be and why it's so important to be honest when songwriting. He thought his album was done when he wrote the song.
