Dale Strength and the Dickins

Like nothing you’ve ever heard before, Dale Strength and The Dickins takes country music to a whole new stratosphere! It’s not traditional country and it’s not really contemporary. It’s kind of “Sideways Country”.

The Dickins, aka Dale Strength, Bobby Strength and Gregg Inhofer, have been making music together since they were kids. Something special happens when you’ve been creative together for that long and that “something special” is showcased in spades on their new CD “Sideways Country”. It’s a combination of unique vocals, song arrangements and catchy grooves blended with traditional acoustic instruments over electric bass and drums. The result is truly a brand new approach to country.

Dale and younger brother Bobby have been steeped in country music since birth. They are the sons of country music singer/songwriter and Nashville DJ Hall Of Fame recipient, Texas Bill Strength. While growing up on the road with their dad, Dale and Bobby met and mingled with many of Nashville’s biggest stars, most of whom were close friends of Bill’s. They watched from backstage of the Ryman Auditorium as their dad performed on the Grand Old Opry. They lived in a world where Elvis really did come to their house to hang out and eat dinner. Tex Ritter would visit and spend the day telling stories or watching football. Ira Louvin of the legendary Louvin Brothers, one of Bills closest friends, even taught Dale and Bobby his fishing style. Shortly after hooking up with the Strength brothers as a teen, Gregg Inhofer was immediately adopted by Texas Bill as one of his “boys” and has been considered family ever since. Gregg played keyboards on Bob Dylans legendary “Blood On The Tracks” album and also has a brand new CD with 12 incredible original songs. Through the years the three have played many different styles of music together from country to avant-garde jazz. They have performed with many big name acts including Olivia Newton-John who they backed up on her first 14 tours of the U.S. The Dickins puts together a fun mixture of styles on this infectious new CD. Take a listen. We think you’ll love it!
