Travis Denning (born December 1, 1992) is an American country music singer signed to Universal Music Group Nashville's Mercury Nashville branch, and has charted with his singles "David Ashley Parker from Powder Springs" and "After a Few".

Musical career[edit]

Denning was born on December 1, 1992 in Warner Robins, Georgia. He began pursuing his musical interests after listening to music with his father as a teenager, and released his first single in 2012. After moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 2014, he got a publishing deal with RED Creative Group, which led to him writing songs for Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, and Chase Rice among others. After promoting himself on social media, he began performing as opening acts for Moore, Rice, and Lanco. In 2018, he signed to Mercury Nashville and released the single "David Ashley Parker from Powder Springs",[1] which has charted on Country Airplay. In 2019, Denning released his second single, "After a Few", which became a top 20 hit on the Country Airplay chart.

The song is based on Denning's real-life experiences with identity document forgery when he was underaged, and David Ashley Parker is a real person whose identity Denning used to buy beer and cigarettes when he was not old enough to do so legally.[2] Denning wrote the song with Jon Randall and Jessi Alexander.[3] Denning also co-wrote Michael Ray's 2019 single "Her World or Mine".
