I am not sure how I have missed not hearing this talented young man, but glad this was brought to my attention. Emerging singer-songwriter Dustin Collins has signed a label-services deal with Average Joes Entertainment for marketing and distribution of his new album set for release this summer on DCDL Entertainment.
Fresh off his independent single “Cold Dead Hands,” which ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Singles Sales chart, Dustin is in the studio preparing for his next music project.
A true road warrior, Dustin spent hundreds of miles on the road playing in honky tonks, fairs and festivals throughout the Midwest and his home state of Kentucky, including a slot on Aaron Watson’s Vaquero Tour, as well as opening for Chris Janson, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, the Kentucky Headhunters and many more.
“I am honored and humbled to be part of the Average Joes family! Their team believes in authentic, nonconformist music and knows how to get it out to the fans. This wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for mentors in my life like David Long and Dave Hufana. They’ve been there for me from the beginning and continue this wild ride with me!” Dustin exclaimed.
“We are excited to partner with Dustin, his music is authentic, and his live show entertains, impresses and he wins new fans every night. We look forward to bringing his music to the widest possible audience as his career continues to grow,” said Forrest Latta, A&R, Average Joes Entertainment.
