About Tim Dugger
An amiable singer rooted in the sunny sound of mainstream '90s country, Tim Dugger earned the distinction of being as big a fan of NASCAR as he was of country music. Often, his performance mirrored the NASCAR circuit, an avenue that allowed him to expand his audience for his amiable country, which was best showcased on his 2015 debut EP, Beer on a Boat.
A native of Alabama, Tim Dugger began performing music when he was a child in the '90s, getting his start singing at church. He veered toward country music as a teenager, playing in a series of bands, graduating to bars as he reached the end of his teens. Soon, he was hawking his original material at shows, which often followed the NASCAR circuit.
During the mid-2000s, when he was heading out of his teens, Dugger had a reality TV show called Highway to Fame in development. The show finally hit the air in 2012, featuring Dugger along with several other fledgling country singers.
He continued to perform regularly through the mid-2010s, writing and recording original material along the way. These songs would regularly appear as digital singles on the internet. By 2015, he'd signed with Curb Records, working with producer Jim Ed Norman on the material that comprised his debut EP, Beer on a Boat.
Over the next four years, Dugger regularly played live, maintaining his strong connection to the NASCAR circuit. He released his second EP, the Brandon Hood-produced Signs of a Good Time, early in 2020. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
