    Songwriter Dallas Gregory

    About Dallas Gregory
    Dallas Gregory is the owner and Creative Director of Song Rocket Music Publishing. He has secured cuts on indie artists and major label Christian artists. He is an accomplished music industry veteran with over 25 years of professional experience in the Nashville music arena. He is respected among his peers for his expertise in music publishing, recording, studio production, artist development/management and writer representation. One of Dallas's most notable career achievements includes helping secure over 130 song cuts, many by some of the biggest names in the country, pop and Christian market. His expertise has enabled him to have songs placed in movies, on Broadway, television and success with song cuts in the overseas market.

    Dallas began his distinguished music career as an artist and background singer with the Grand Ole Opry road show, sharing the stage with many country music legends such as Dolly Parton, Alabama and Loretta Lynn, among others. After a six year run performing with some of country music's most celebrated musicians and artists, Dallas decided to shift directions professionally and lend his talent and love for music to the studio and recording sector of the music industry by joining Masterfonics, one of the premier recording and mastering facilities in the country.

    While at Masterfonics, Dallas worked with many of today’s top stars, producers and session players in country, rock and gospel music. In 1995, Dallas accepted the position of Creative Director at High Seas Music Publishing, a Fitzgerald Hartley/Warner Chapel Music joint venture company, concentrating on writer and catalog development and representing songs written by some of Nashville’s most successful hit songwriters. During this time, Dallas helped build an extensive catalog of songs through the signing of talented songwriters and acquisition of catalogs.

    In 2002, Dallas launched, Song Rocket Music, an active music publishing company located in Nashville, Tennessee. Since the launch of Song rocket Music, Dallas has been affiliated with hit songwriters who have enjoyed successes with cuts by artists such as Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan, Sarah Darling, Thompson Square, Canadian artist Shane Yellowbird, Eric Clapton, Carole King, Lady A, Kenny Rogers and A&R for specialty Christian projects with Influence Music. Dallas teaches Christian Song Feedback and Mentoring at SongU.com.
