Over the past few years, Gabe Dixon changed almost everything. The Nashville-based troubadour focused on starting from scratch following the release of 2011’s One Spark. He parted ways with his longtime management and record label Concord Music Group, and he began feverishly penning ideas. However, the one thing that didn’t change was that honest, heartfelt approach to songwriting that countless fans fell in love with when he first emerged in 1999.

“I started writing a lot more than ever before,” he recalls. “I had so many songs, and I was really thinking about some weighty subjects—mortality, what’s important in life, and the value of love. In many ways, the music was about learning how to be in a committed relationship, leave immature ways behind, grow, evolve, and move on from habits that aren’t necessarily who you are anymore.”

With a clean slate and the biggest batch of songs yet, he entered The Smoakstack recording studio in Berry Hill, TN with producer Paul Moak [Mat Kearney, Third Day] in early 2015. He wanted to embrace what came most naturally and build a raw and real body of work.

“I wasn’t interested in making an album with any sequencing or anything on-the-grid,” he affirms. “I wasn’t interested in just handing over my songs to somebody. I wanted to go in with musicians and get performances that were inspiring and inspired and take it from there. Paul was completely on the same page. What results is an album that feels very natural and almost folk-y at times. I went a little off course on One Spark; I didn’t trust myself. I learned to trust myself, and the sound of Turns To Gold is the most representative of who I am. It’s warm, laidback, acoustic, and live.”
