EAGLE NEST, N.M. (KRQE) – Over the years, visiting his cabin in Eagle Nest, a country musician has fallen in love with New Mexico. Billy Dawson just released a song he wrote about the Land of Enchantment.It’s called “New Mexico (Kind of Thing)” and was just made public on Tuesday.
He and Chad Raymon created the song.
“I wrote about all my favorite things of the Enchanted Circle in New Mexico. I grew up coming to New Mexico ever since I was like two or three years old,” Dawson said.
“When you write about something you love, such as New Mexico, then it doesn’t take very long to kind of pour your heart out into a song and try to encapsulate what y’all have there,” Dawson told KRQE News 13. “I’m just trying to show the world what y’all have and try to promote tourism to the area,” he said.
“It’s an emotional song for people who were raised there,” he said.
Dawson will appear in Eagle Nest at the second annual “Nashville to New Mexico” concert on Saturday, June 25. It will include performances from some of Nashville’s top songwriters.
