CRS 2018 with Laura: Dave McElroy

by Laura Lou / 33 days ago / Comments

CRS (Country Radio Seminar) kicked off on Monday, February 5th, with my first interview of the event being with emerging artist, Dave McElroy. 

McElroy came into the booth with the most infectious smile and upbeat attitude, despite the time he had just been on the road in route to Nashville from Minnesota, the night of the Super Bowl, no less.  There was no way anyone could not immediately feed off of that positive vibe and it was a terrific way to start the day.

Check out our interview and hear as we discuss his new single, Nowhere with You, currently sitting in the Top 60 on the Music Row Chart and how he celebrated his new release during the Super Bowl. 

There have been adjectives used to describe McElroy such as Positive, Inspiring and Motivational and as you listen to him describe his journey to where he is now, there is no doubt that you will clearly see how anyone can conclude this is an artist that you just want to listen to and want to learn more about.

We discussed his early morning drives with his father at a young age and what memories that bring back to him today as well as a special gift from his grandfather at the age of eighteen, which he carries with him everywhere. 

With musical influences such as Louis Armstrong, Hank Williams, Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, to name a few, it comes as no surprise why he is the artist he is today, that being, the real-deal country artist.  He writes and sings what he has lived and stays true to that regardless of what everyone else may be doing.

Make sure you check out McElroy at all the links below and get your copy of Nowhere with You today.  You will be an immediate fan.

About Laura Lou

Laura Lou Journalist

Beginning about age 13, music always been my “safe place”, my “escape”, it became a part of who I am. My background includes being a photographer/journalist for newspapers, magazines and radio stations and more recently I have been an artist manager. What I continue to strive to learn is, what is important to the fans/readers? I find that the answer is always that they want to feel close to the artist they are supporting. The human contact that we all need is something that I want to deliver to anyone that happens to read something I write or see a photograph I shoot. It is important to me to provide that experience, because I am, after all, still always a “fan” and that giddy 13-year-old girl is simply amazed! I never imagined that my passion and love for music would lead me where I am today! I use the hashtag #iamtheluckiestgirliknow because I cannot believe how blessed I am! I’m excited to see “what happens next” and take you all along with me! This is going to be amazing…
