About Tim Dugger

Curb Records recording artist, Country Music singer/songwriter, and Alabama-native Tim Dugger grew up on NASCAR racing, Gospel singing and classic Country music. He developed a genuine love for songwriting and storytelling during summers spent at his local music store jamming with bluegrass pickers. After being introduced to former NASCAR driver and team owner Richard Childress, Dugger was off to the races, playing his original songs at nearly every major track in America. Along the way, he cultivated an unapologetic artistic identity, rooted in the music of his childhood idols like Merle Haggard, Vern Gosdin, Hank Williams, and Alan Jackson. Tim, who has 20 million career streams, made his Grand Ole Opry Debut in December of 2021. Dugger’s latest single, “Mama Tried,” is available now.
