Dustin Herring is a rising singer-songwriter based in Nashville. Known for his traditional vocal style and honest storytelling, Dustin’s classic country sound is authentic and genuine. Hailing from south Alabama, Dustin incorporates his real-life experiences and struggles into every song he creates. He’s no stranger to hard work, spending the early days of his career working on a research farm and saving up for the big move to Nashville. Since arriving in the Music City in 2014, he’s opened for dozens of well-known performers including Jamey Johnson, Ashley McBryde, Mark Chesnutt, Doug Stone and many more. Dustin has released multiple singles and EPs and continues to be hard at work in the studio writing and recording new music.

Estes Public Relations worked with Dustin to define his personal brand, maximize his social media channels, promote shows and events and garner attention for his new music. EPR developed branding recommendations and social media plans as well as strategic plans for album and EP release dates. EPR also created a talent sheet for Dustin to use with promoters, collaborators, partners and potential representation. From 2020-2022, EPR secured more than 50 media mentions for Dustin, with a total UVM of 1.5 billion. Placements included Taste of Country, Wide Open Country, Saving Country Music, Nashville Music Guide, and in Auburn University’s alumni publication.
