The hit title track is the highest-charting single of Dalton’s career, having reached number 2 on Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and received a Million Airplay Award from BMI. The easygoing tune was co-written by Dalton and Mark Sherill before being produced by Billy Sherill. Also included on this album, “Everybody Makes Mistakes” continues to be one of Dalton’s most requested singles, resonating a lesson we can all learn from. The crowd in Colorado will certainly have a good time helping Dalton celebrate this milestone at The Moxi Theatre and The Black Buzzard at Oskar Blues!
Dalton has received several notable awards over the years including a certified Platinum record for her work as the only female duet on Willie Nelson’s album, ‘Half Nelson.’ She was also awarded Strictly Country Magazine’s President’s Choice award for best well-written music for ‘Boundless Skies’, and the Pete Huttlinger Award for Music Excellence for the CD ‘Last Wild Place Anthology.’
First hitting the Country Top-20 in 1979 with “Crazy Blue Eyes,” Dalton was one of the most successful female vocalists of the format during the 80s with the CMA-nominated anthem “16th Avenue,” as well as other million-airplay hits like “Takin’ It Easy,” “Everybody Makes Mistakes,” “Hillbilly Girl With The Blues,” and “Black Coffee.” During her career, she has collaborated with such Country Music Hall of Fame members as Bobby Bare, Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, and George Jones. She toured with outlaws like Hank Williams Jr. at a time when it was very unusual for a woman to do so. She also toured for long periods of time with Willie Nelson and is the only female on his ‘Half Nelson’ album, which also includes duets with Ray Charles, Merle Haggard, Carlos Santana, Neil Young.
Her most recent recorded work is the four-song EP ‘Scarecrow’ which is now available on all streaming music sites. Dalton is a 2017 inductee of the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame.
