Dylan Raymond Talks New EP, Musical Influences, and Moving to Nashville

By  | 

We caught up with rising country star, Dylan Raymond, and got all the scoop on his new EP, musical influences, making the big move to Nashville, and more! Raymond is a country recording artist from Terre Haute, Indiana. Growing up, some of his musical influences included Randy Travis and Johnny Cash. “My grandfather introduced me to them at such a young age and I was instantly in awe at their music.”

Dylan Raymond’s latest release, I Can Be That, is the perfect soundtrack for your summer. Discussing the making of the EP, Raymond said, “Going into the studio last October for the first time, I told my producer I wanted to be ‘different.’ I didn’t want to be like everyone else out on the radio. I wanted my own unique sound. The songs on the record really show each part of my life in the last 7 months of the studio. From your driving around song, summer song, love song, heartbreak song, to losing a loved one song, I really feel there’s a song for everyone on the record! My personal favorite is ‘Truck Key’ written about my grandfather and the truck key I wear around my neck.”

Keeping in touch with his fans is extremely important to Raymond. “Staying connected with fans plays a huge part in being an artist. I’m lucky enough to have some of the best fans around. They are such a joy to get to know, meet when I’m out and about and to hear how my songs affect them!”

The Indiana native is gearing up to make the big move to Nashville. Raymond is “looking forward to meeting many more new friends down in Nashville and growing as an artist.” If he could give a piece of advice to aspiring musicians, it would be “have patience! Rome wasn’t built in a day! Don’t rush anything and have fun along the way!”
