Dallas Wayne is an Austin, Texas-based singer, songwriter, voice-over artist and on-air radio personality for SIRIUS Satellite Radio. A native of Springfield, Missouri, Dallas began performing professionally while in high school, and by the age of 18 he had toured throughout the entire U.S. and Canada. After moving to Nashville, he further developed his vocal style singing demos for many of the top publishing houses in the music industry.

While touring Europe in the early 90s, Dallas forged a deal with Texicalli Records in Finland and was signed to record an album. He went on to record six albums. Later, he moved to Scandinavia, where he became a staff writer for Warner/Chappell Music.

After four years living and touring in Europe, Dallas returned to the U.S. and signed a record deal with HighTone Records. In addition to recording two albums of his own on the HighTone label, Dallas was a part of the honky-tonk supergroup, the TwangBangers.

In early 2003, Dallas moved to Austin, Texas; two years later, he released the CD I'm Your Biggest Fan on the Koch Records Nashville label. Dallas' latest album I’ll Take the Fifth was released on Smith Entertainment records in early 2009.

In addition to his radio career, songwriting and touring, Dallas also performs with the legendary band Heybale! [1]
