By the age of 16, he had picked up a guitar and started teaching himself to play, yet it was his grandfather who turned him on to country music and artists such as Keith Whitley, Rhett Akins, Joe Diffie, and Steve Wariner. Enamored with the honesty and storytelling found in country music, Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” was the first song Dover taught himself to play on guitar.

Performances at local bars soon followed along with sharing covers of some of his favorite songs on TikTok. It was there he caught the ear of producer Matt McV and A&R Veteran and founder of Droptine Recordings, Jim Catino, who quickly signed Dover.

Married to his high school sweetheart, Faith, the two have lived in the same rural Georgia small town, population 1,200, all their lives, important for the Dovers to give their two young children, Taylor and Alyiah, the same idyllic childhood they had growing up — the life one finds in a small town.

After opening for Luke Comb’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium show in Atlanta, Ga. Summer 2022, Dover set out on his seven-night August residency, performing across multiple locations of Blake Shelton’s Ole Red. Dover brought his captivating live set to Priscilla Block’s Welcome to the Block Party Tour in the fall and is set to open for Chase Rice, among others in 2023.

He had his Opry debut in December(see article below) after a surprise invite from Blake Shelton.
