Haddock’s diligent nature mixed with his traditional, authentic style of country music has quickly solidified his spot as a staple in the Red Dirt Country scene. Gearing up to release a string of new singles with hit producer/songwriter and Haddock's manager Trent Willmon (Cody Johnson, Eric Church, Randy Houser, Little Big Town) at the helm, the young talent is on an unprecedented path. Haddock recently released the first taste of new music in nearly 2 years with “Wind It Down” and “Better Than Your Memory”, and is slated to release a collaboration with Jon Wolfe in the coming months. The new project follows Haddock's early 2020 Red Dirt Texas album release which has produced 3 Top 15 Texas Country singles.
The Texas A&M Senior clocks more than 150 tour dates a year and has recently opened for artists including Randall King, Steve Wariner, Kevin Fowler, Casey Donahew, Roger Creager and more.
Currently boasting more than 3 million streams, Haddock has tracks featured on Spotify’s Texas Music Now, Apple Music’s Don’t Mess With Texas and Amazon Music’s Texas Forever playlists. Haddock further solidified his trajectory when he was awarded New Male Vocalist of the Year at the leading Texas award show, the 2020 T3R Awards.
Haddock’s 10-track, sophomore album entitled Red Dirt Texas, features five songs co-written by Haddock and chart-topping songwriters including Willmon, Kevin Fowler, David Lee Murphy, Terry McBride, Tommy Karlas, John Pierce, Jim Collins and more. Upon its January 2020 release, Red Dirt Texas reached No. 39 on the iTunes Country albums chart. The “Red Dirt Texas” music video made its world premiere on Billboard and has racked up more than 450K views across all platforms. Staying true to his Texas roots, Haddock recently announced a partnership with award-winning Texas based distillery, Texas Ranger Whiskey. The hardworking, road warrior also has multiple TV appearances under his belt including ABC Dallas’ Good Morning Texas, CBS Austin’s We Are Austin, FOX 7 Austin’s Music In The Morning, San Antonio’s Great Day SA, Colorado’s Good Morning Vail, Las Vegas’ MORE FOX5, WSMV’s Today In Nashville, and CBS Bryan-College Station’s Free Music Friday.
Some may be surprised to find out that Haddock is only 22-years-old as he has a musical instinct well beyond his years and sites influences from George Strait, Eric Church, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi and Clay Walker. When Haddock is not juggling classes and tour dates, the avid outdoorsman spends time hunting, fishing and experimenting on his Traeger grill. Having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at a young age, Haddock works with several organizations to help spread awareness of the disease and is an advocate/speaker for JDRF.
