When you only have five-hundred dollars, you need to have a dream, a great song, and maybe a good pair of antlers to make the magic happen.

Dan Davidson is something of an oddity in the world of country music for a few reasons. Hailing from the Great White North of St. Albert, Alberta is one. Having a well received video for support of his second single release, “Found,” is another. Doing it for just five hundred dollars – we’re still not sure if it’s US or Canadian which then brings up conversion rate issues but we digress – and all the while be dressed up in a moose costume is the best one.


While we’re waiting for Dan’s interview with us to happen, we know he’s already said this about his music. “I always knew “Found” was a strong song, but I had no idea it would do what it did for my career. It gave me a renewed faith that a great song CAN do some of the heavy lifting,” explained Davidson. “I never could have dreamed that I would have the #1 selling Canadian country single, the #1 tested song in most major markets, a video in the CMT Top 20 countdown, a top 15 iTunes single, and a song that cracked the top 20. This just doesn’t happen to indie artists, what a great year, I could not be more thankful!”

Davidson elaborated that the video was a “hilarious experiment” involving the “tiniest of indie budgets” and rented mascot costumes. After seeing the video on TV, he described having a realization that he is a grown man dressed as a moose for a living asking himself, “Am I doing this grown up thing right?”

The track, “Found,” Davidson referred to as a modern-day “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” which he calls a “fun drunken proposal song” to which many can relate. He explains, “There is no better feeling than to fall in love and to start seeing a brighter future.”

So, after you check out the video, let us know what you think at our Facebook or Twitter feed. We’d love the feedback.
