Cale Dodds  

Country Music Artist & Songwriter

Cale Dodds has been writing songs since the age of 12. At the age of 22, after attending Columbus State University, Dodds made the move from Columbus, GA to Nashville, TN to pursue his career in music. In 2014, Cale released his first EP titled “Wild and Wreckless” -- a five-song project recorded at Ocean Way Studio with Kyle Jacobs and Matt McClure. In 2015, Dodds received a cut from A Thousand Horses for his song “Drunk Dial,” which reached number 23 on Billboards’s Country Airplay Chart; and in 2016, Warner/Chappell Music signed Dodds to a worldwide publishing agreement. In March 2016, Dodds independently released his second project, "People Watching - EP", produced by Corey Crowder and Zach Abend. Since the release, his songs "People Watching" and "Lying" have been streamed over 5 million times, and “Acting Our Age,” was selected for the EA Sports Madden ‘17 soundtrack which also featured artists such as Blake Shelton and Brantley Gilbert.

Cale has also been tour support for artists like Sam Hunt, Brett Eldredge, and Billy Currington.

In January 2017, Cale Dodds joined Warner Music Nashville. Later that year, in September, Dodds released his first major label "double" -- a two-sided single -- featuring "All Over" and "Lying." The second double followed in November with "Out Of My System" and "People Watching," and the third in January 2018 with Cale's radio single "Take You Back" and "Like We Do."

"Take You Back" arrived to country music radio in March, but prior to hitting the airwaves, Rolling Stone had already named Cale Dodds one of their November 2017 "New Country Artists You Need To Know." CMT Listen Up revealed him as one of their "18 for 2018" class members -- a year-long campaign that spotlights "country music's most promising newcomers." Billboard and Rolling Stone both named Dodd's 2018 CMA Fest performance as one of the best things they saw from the four-day music festival.

Most recently, in early October 2018, Cale Dodds shared new music with a studio and acoustic version of his song, "What We Gonna Do About It.
