Johnny Dailey Interview by My Wedding Songs
When did you decide that you wanted to be a musician?
I learned to play guitar when I was about 10 years old, but it wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I really got the desire to move to Nashville and be a songwriter.
Who are some of the artists that have influenced your music style?
I love the storytellers of country music. My biggest influences are George Strait, Alan Jackson, and Kenny Chesney. The songs they sang fit the small-town way I grew up and made me want to start writing my own songs about that lifestyle.
You just released a new song “Got Married.” Can you tell us the backstory of the song?
I wrote this song with Dan Couch and Matty Bubel. It’s just an honest song about my life over the past 5 years. I met my wife and 8 months after knowing each other we found out we had our first baby on the way. Fast forward to now, it’s been the best thing that’s ever happened to me, meeting her and growing our family. Life tends to throw you unexpected curve balls every now and then but I wouldn’t trade where I am for anywhere else.

Do you have any favorite lyrics in “Got Married”?
I love them all but the bridge really stands out to me… “first comes love, second comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage…don’t always work out that way, don’t mean it won’t work out great”
“Got Married” makes for a great wedding song. Can you share any wedding stories with the song?
So we ended up planning our wedding in about 2 months. I don’t know how we did it, but it was a great night and had so many friends and family show up to support us.
If you were able to play with any current music artists, who would they be and where would you play?
I’d say Alan Jackson. And anywhere by the water would be good.
What is your proudest moment in the music industry? Have any goals?
Anytime I release music it’s a great feeling. As long as I can keep writing and doing that I’ll be happy. I’ve got goals for sure, but just trying to write great songs and get out and tour as much as I can.
Do you have any plans to release any other new music or upcoming projects?
Yeah, we will probably release another song before the end of the year. Hopefully an album next year.
What advice would you give to other aspiring artists?
Write and sing what you know. Everybody’s got their own unique story to tell, so might as well tell your own!

Breakout Country Artist Johnny Dailey Releases Heartfelt New Song “Got Married”
The Music Video Premiered Exclusively with People Today, Friday, August 26
NASHVILLE — Rising country singer/songwriter, Johnny Dailey, released his new single “Got Married” today Friday, August 26, 2022. Co-written by Dailey, Dan Couch (Cody Johnson, Elvie Shane, Lauren Alaina, Kip Moore), and Matty Bubel (Ellie Goulding, AJ Mitchell, Tenille Arts), “Got Married” is his most personal and honest release thus far. The song tells the autobiographical story of his own life, capturing the sentiment of even though things don’t quite work out how you expected them to, it’s those life changes that make life even more beautiful than initially expected. Watch the music video here.
The music video features not only present-day clips of Johnny, his wife Michelle, and their two children but also footage from Johnny and his wife’s wedding. Each piece of footage offers viewers an inside glimpse of his authentic love story, subsequently serving as the perfect visual for a song about embracing the unexpected and cherishing all of life’s blessings. However, it’s the moment at the end of the video that feels like a full circle moment for not only the song but Johnny and his wife as their sons sweetly share an ultrasound photo of their baby sister on the way.
“When I found out we were having a third baby, I was downstairs drinking coffee and Michelle came up and showed me a positive test,” Johnny shared with People. “Since we have two boys we were hoping for a little girl. A few weeks later we found out it was a girl! We are both so excited.”
On Thursday, Johnny was handpicked by Instagram as the “Reels Star Of The Week” where he interviewed for a spotlight Q&A on Instagram’s official Creator’s account and shared a live performance of “Got Married” for their 10.5 million followers. Summer 2022 has been a busy time for Johnny who previously released “Beers In It” which received tremendous support from media outlets such as E! Online, Entertainment Tonight, CMT, and the Academy of Country Music among others. Earlier this year, Johnny released his debut EP, Dillashaw, a six-track collection that helped to further cement Johnny as a breakout artist in the genre as noted by Billboard’s inclusion on their 2022 Artists to Watch list. He has racked up over 2 million global streams from fan-favorite tracks such as “24” and “Trouble” and in September he’ll be providing direct support to Jo Dee Messina in Texas. With hard work, grit, and determination, Johnny maintains his staying power in a stacked genre with each new release as he draws in more and more listeners with his soulful vocals that are perfectly complemented with emotional and relatable lyrics. With more new music and shows planned for 2022, it’s clear that there’s no stopping the upward trajectory for this budding star.
