Having laid down the roots of his trademark sound with acclaimed debut EP, Signs of a Good Time, the Alabama native – whose career streams recently surpassed 15 million – shared the follow-up single, ‘Heart of a Small Town’ last year. The release found international success: a world exclusive from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2; handpicked by Baylen Leonard as a Spotlight Track on Absolute Radio Country, and a broadcast premiere on CMT Australia.

Now, Dugger returns with ‘Buy A Bar’, which finds him trading heartbreak for enterprise (“I might as well buy a bar”), capturing the agony of a breakup in a quintessential country song tailor-made for every small-town dive across America.
