Singer/songwriter Dan Alley was 21 years old when he left his hometown of Miamisburg, Ohio to become a full-time country musician. Alley grew up surrounded by music – his parents, both talented vocalists, and his sister, a bluegrass singer/songwriter and instrumentalist – it was no surprise that Alley picked up the guitar at age 9 and hasn’t put it down since. By 18, Alley was playing nearly every night at local bars after working a full-time job. Realizing his heart was more in performing and writing than in his 9-5, he decided to pack his bags and move to Nashville, TN to make his dreams a reality. During his career, Alley has had the opportunity to write with many of his inspirations such as Josh Thompson, Mo Pitney, Brent Cobb, Dean Dillon and Casey Beathard. Influenced by the likes of Hank Jr., Merle Haggard and Ricky Skaggs, Alley’s artistry blends the familiarity of traditional Country with a modern yet timeless feel. As a songwriter, Alley has landed cuts with award-winner Lainey Wilson’s “Straight Up Sideways,” Josh Gallagher’s “Bright Side” and more.
