According to, he is influenced by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Garth Brooks.

Cale Dodds is a gifted solo artist with a band-brain. He masterfully plays off the musicians who surround him and creates a salon-style performance space where the audience is a welcome extension of the band. That collaborative style carries over to his songwriting: Dodds has a tremendous ability for turning a phrase and exploring nuances that are easily overlooked. Touted by Rolling Stone for his “smooth pop-country crooning over arena ready arrangements distinguished by clever lyricism,” the Columbus, GA native mines his own experiences in songs. The clever lyricist will take his latest single “Take You Back” to country radio this spring and has already garnered early praise as a CMT #18for2018 Listen Up artist and a Google Play Country Artist to Watch. Meanwhile, his tune “Out of My System” scored a slot on Amazon Music Unlimited’s Best Country Songs of 2017 list. One of Rolling Stone’s New Country Artists You Need to Know, Dodds has already garnered more than 15 million streams on Spotify alone.
