Devin Dawson is explaining why he sounds different lately — he’s struggling with dysphonia.

In an interview with Storme Warren on SiriusXM’s The Highway 上周, the country star said he has been grappling with the muscle condition and voice disorder, which prevents him from sounding like he normally does, 最后 “10 months to a year.

It’s not common but it definitely happens to people and no one really talks about it. I’ve never had an issue being vulnerable or honest or authentic or whatever but it just felt like time to kind of just open up,” the singer said about finally sharing this months-long journey.

道森, 33, told the host that he began noticing a change when he was opening for 扎克布朗乐队 on their Comeback Tour in December 2021.

There were certain notes in the middle of my range to the lower part of my range where it was like, ‘Why does this not feel the same?” the singer-songwriter said.

在采访中, Dawson said he doesn’t feel any pain, and doctors in both Nashville and Boston have each told him that there is nothing physically wrong with his vocal cords. He has tried several remedies to no avail, but remains hopeful.

The self-proclaimedcountry music gothshared more about his experience with the condition in a vulnerable Instagram post on Sunday.

For me it has severely [affected] my talking voice and my singing voice in the lower ranges,” he wrote in the post. “When this all started I hoped it would be a couple month recovery and that I would do all the work to find my way through it.

He said that although he’sway betterthan he was a few months ago, he’s not able to give his fans “100%” 然而.

One of the hardest parts of this has been just getting everyone up to speed individually and having to almost relive how much it sucks not to be able to talk or sing the way I want every time I catch up with someone,” 他继续.

Dawson also added that this condition has had silver linings, saying that he’s gained perspective, clarity and humility, 并且有 “really enjoyed getting to sharpen other swords,” such as his songwriting. (He’s the writer behind 布莱克谢尔顿‘s No. 1 打 “God’s Country.”)

It’s been over a year since theAll on Mesinger released his last project, The Pink Slip, and Dawson said in his post thatNOBODY wants me to make another record more than I do.

And I will,” 他加了.

As far as when that’s gonna beI’m not so sure,” the singer continued in the post. “But I am sure it will be a damn good one.
