Country singer-songwriter Dallas Moore releases his cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Lodi,” the third and final single off Moore’s upcoming album Tryin’ To Be A Blessing, out on October 4 via Sol Records.

“We had only recently started playing ‘Lodi’ in our live sets in the last year or so,” Moore explains. “We had just begun playing shows in Bakersfield and Sacramento and would always pass the Lodi exit while we were traveling between the two and one night I just kinda went into an impromptu version of it. We definitely developed a heavy Bakersfield influence with it as our arrangement evolved. I’ve always loved the lyrics and melody to this Fogerty/CCR Classic and it felt like a perfect fit for this album. Even though I didn’t write this one I have Damn sure lived it.”

“Lodi” follows previous single “Everyhing But You,” which as Billboard wrote, details how “Moore spent most of last year on the road, playing 337 shows…With a wife and two-year old daughter at home, [he] struggles with with being away on the reflective tune.”

The “up-tempo, exuberant track,” “Mama & Daddy” served as the first single from the album which Taste of Country said, “would be right at home in any barroom in the world, featuring a chugging drum track, shuffle pattern guitar rhythm tracks and punctuated by tasteful steel guitar runs.”

Like Moore’s last album, 2018’s Mr. Honky Tonk, Tryin’ To Be A Blessing was produced by Dean Miller, son of the legendary Roger Miller and a fellow country singer/songwriter. The album features a guest appearance by Nashville Honky Tonk singer Tommy Ash on the song “Lovin’ on Backstreets.”

Moore’s transcendent performances with his ace outfit the Dallas Moore Band have attracted fans of gutsy, traditional country and Americana alike, logging upwards of 300 shows per year. This year has proved no different as Dallas continues his never ending tour with shows across the US through the rest of the year. See full list of tour dates below.
