Listen Now: Hannah Dasher "Ugly Houses"

“Ugly Houses is a love letter to all of the fixer-uppers in life who struggle with imperfection. Dasher channels her faith and shows a new side of herself outside of her fiery, wise-cracking persona that fans have come to know and adore.

Listen to “Ugly Houses,” here:

“‘Ugly Houses’ is the most vulnerable song I’ve ever released,” says Dasher. “God’s been humbling me the past two years, doing a major renovation. Felt like I needed to share it with the world — especially during times like now. Whether listeners are believers or not, I hope this song leaves ’em in a better place than it found ’em.” 

‘The Other Damn Half’ record was entirely co-written by Dasher and produced by Ilya Toshinskiy, who has previously produced music for Jelly Roll, Riley Green, Patty Smyth and more. ‘The Other Damn Half’ offers something for everyone from set-your-hair-on-fire Honky Tonk jams to faith-driven vulnerable ballads. It takes a deeper look into every facet of who Dasher is as an artist and the wide range of emotions she captures through her witty and relatable songwriting.

“Maybe you’re a fan of old-school country music, maybe you’re into the new stuff, or maybe you’re not a fan of country at all,” adds Dasher. “Whichever it may be, there’s something on ‘The Other Damn Half’ for you. I hope fans see a little of themselves on this new half record.”

Last month, Dasher shared the song and video for the album’s unapologetic payback anthem “Cryin’ All The Way To The Bank.” Named a CMT Next Women of Country artist, a Fender Next artist, and a MusicRow Next Big Thing artist, Dasher has taken country music by storm with her incomparable songwriting, twang-heavy power vocals, and undeniably authentic personality that shines through the music and her viral TikTok Southern cooking series Stand By Your Pan.

See what people have said of Dasher in the past:
