HIGH EARTH, Ind. (WTHI) – A local musician is on his way to becoming the next big star in country music!
Dylan Schneider is a 21 year old country artist from Terre Haute. Now he’s showing off his talent in the nation’s country music capital.
Schneider says his passion for country music began almost ten years ago and he hasn’t looked back since.
“Country music kind of broke away from storytelling and the relativity of it,” he said. “It really made me want to be a superstar, country star or rockstar someday, and I stuck with that.”
Last July, the former Terre Haute South student signed a recording contract with Broken Bow Records. The Nashville company currently has artists like Jason Aldean, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Kid Rock. Now Schneider is set to release his new song “Lost in a small town” this next Friday. He says it’s a blessing to see his dreams finally come true.
“It’s crazy,” he said. “It’s something I’ve always dreamed of. We’ve had so many blessings so far, and there are always more to come. So you have to keep driving and chasing the dream. It was crazy. to go on stage and have hundreds of people, thousands of people in front of you knowing your songs and shouting them at you. This is something you can only dream of, and now the fact that it is happening is great, great, super exciting. “
The rising country star has been working his music in Nashville for several years now. He has nearly half a million listeners on Spotify and his fan base continues to grow. He says he has admired so many musicians in the past, and now he wants to be an inspiration to others.
“I know how certain songs affect me and how artists affect me, and I admire them, so it’s cool to think that I can do that for someone else.”
Schneider says he has a message he wants to leave with all of his fans.
“I would just say ‘thank you’ to them,” he said. “The fact that I’m still here, and the fact that my songs are still being listened to and played everywhere, it’s just a big thank you. I wouldn’t be around or in this town if it wasn’t for everyone. world of them. ”
