Catch Schneider on Nate Smith’s World On Fire Tour Kicking off January 4 in Athens, Georgia

“Country Music’s Next Rising Star” (Billboard) Dylan Schneider performed his heart-wrenching and autobiographical “Daddy Drinks Whiskey” for the first-time ever in the Grand Ole Opry’s sacred circle, delivering an emotionally charged debut to a packed-out audience. Due to crowd reaction, the BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records artist today releases the raw, solo acoustic and emotively stirring version of that performance. Produced by Zach Abend and written by Schneider with his childhood best friend Gabe Foust and Nate Kenyon, listen to “Daddy Drinks Whiskey (Live From The Opry)HERE.

“Writing ‘Daddy Drinks Whiskey’ was something that was extremely difficult, but also cathartic,” says Schneider. “I knew I needed to write this song for everyone out there who has gone through a similar experience that I have. The Grand Ole Opry is a special place for so many reasons, so performing this song there for the first time, it just felt right. I was blown away by the reaction after and knew I had to release this live acoustic version from that night.”

Writing Dustin Lynch’s emotive Top 5 “Momma’s House” at 18, scoring two RIAA-Gold records by 22, going viral with his radio single “Ain’t Missin’ You” at 23 and gaining over 500,000 social followers in just a few months, the “Artist to Watch” (Amazon Music, Pandora, Taste of Country) isn’t afraid of honest storytelling and the vulnerability that comes along with it, hoping others find comfort in the fact they aren’t alone when struggling with a loved one’s alcoholism.

At only 15, Schneider found success in music and began traveling to Nashville constantly, fighting a battle no one ever knew existed. Now at 24, he’s realized the power this experience, and this song might have in someone else’s life. Exclusively speaking with American Songwriter, he reveals the truth in the lyrics HERE.

Releasing music with “a more mature sound” (American Songwriter), Schneider continues to “expand the bounds of his artistry” and “build upon his foundational country roots with intentionality” (American Songwriter), ultimately making “…music that his fans fall in love with, without losing the authenticity that he has had all along” (Country Swag).

Kicking off 2024 with Nate Smith on his World On Fire Tour, starting January 4 in Athens, Georgia, Schneider’s smash hit “Ain’t Missin’ You” is climbing the country radio charts and racking in over 121M TikTok views, 121k user-generated TikTok videos and 30M on-demand streams.
