Music Friday: ‘Loving You Is Like Finding a Diamond in a Rhinestone World,’ Sings Dallas Smith

Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you new song with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, Canadian country music star Dallas Smith finds the girl of his dreams in his brand new release, “Rhinestone World.”

In the song, Smith admits that he was “lost on highway, a little dazed and confused,” but everything changed when she came along.

Country metaphors bring the story to life as he describes a girl who is unlike all the rest. He compares his new love to a little white church in Mississippi, a red Corvette on a Carolina two lane — and to a rare and precious gem.

“Look at you shine,” he sings. “Loving you is like finding a diamond in a rhinestone world.”

The song made its debut in November of 2018 and hit #30 on Billboard Canadian Country chart.

A native of British Columbia, the 41-year-old Smith was named Male Artist of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Country Music Awards, where his “Sky Stays This Blue” won Video of the Year. He’s set to be the opening act at this summer’s Country Thunder Saskatchewan, July 11-14. Other top performers at the event will be Jake Owen, Tim McGraw, Chris Stapleton, Terri Clark, Gord Bamford, Travis Tritt and Steve Earle and the Dukes.

Smith always had a passion for music growing up, but was reluctant to perform in public. As a young adult he finally decided to face his fears and joined a band consisting of some good friends. By the age of 21, the young man who’s said to have one of the best voices in country music earned his first record deal.

Please check out the video of Smith performing “Rhinestone World.” The lyrics are below if you’d like to sing along…

“Rhinestone World”
Written and performed by Dallas Smith.

See the Sun
Coming up
From the from seat of a greyhound bus
Felt the rain
On the faces
I was standing at the gates of Graceland
Searching for something
Searching for someone
Lost on the highway
A little dazed and confused
But the haze of the road dust
Comes into focus
Every time I look at you

You’re a little white church
On a corner in Mississippi
The front porch light that feels like home, girl
Look at you shine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a red Corvette on a Carolina two lane
Lighter in the air to a damn good song
Girl, can’t believe you’re mine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a diamond in a rhinestone world

Waking up
All alone
Means you might have just been chasing ghosts
And all the glitter fades fast
And a gold rush ain’t made to last

You’re a little white church
On a corner in Mississippi
A front porch light that feels like home, girl
Look at you shine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a red Corvette on a Carolina two lane
Lighter in the air to a damn good song
Girl, can’t believe you’re mine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a little white church
On a corner in Mississippi
A front porch light that feels like home, girl
Look at you shine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a red Corvette on a Carolina two lane
Lighter in the air to a damn good song
Girl, can’t believe you’re mine
Loving you is like finding
A diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a diamond in a rhinestone world

You’re a diamond in a rhinestone world
