Hannah Dasher (ASCAP)

Abe Olman Scholarship, 2018

A Nashville transplant by way of Coastal Georgia with a dream and a six string, Hannah Dasher is making waves in country music. With influences ranging from Dolly and Aretha to Eric Church and Tom Petty, some compare Hannah Dasher's sound to "Hot Chicken with Honey.” Hannah recently celebrated her first songwriting cut on Brad Paisley's new Love and War album. The track entitled, "Go To Bed Early”, also features Hannah on background vocals. She is currently writing for Sony/ATV Nashville and Two Black Dogs Publishing, a company formed by hit songwriter and The Cadillac Three front man, Jaren Johnston. Over the last year, Dasher and Johnston have been working tirelessly on her debut record, “Heavy,” which will be released later this year. “Hannah has a voice and personality I feel the country format desperately needs,” says producer and publisher Jaren Johnston. Her ‘Dolly Parton on cocaine’ vibe puts her in a league of her own. She is a rock star plain and simple and I can’t wait for the world to experience her.”  Catch Dasher out on the road this Spring and Summer opening for The Cadillac Three for their “Long Hair Don’t Care Tour.”
