Dylan Schneider (born October 9, 1999) is an American country music singer and songwriter. He self-released his debut extended play, Wannabe in August 2016. Labelled "Country Music's Next Rising Star" by Billboard, Schneider has landed two EPs in the top 20 of the magazine's Heatseekers Albums chart in under a year without a label to support them.
Schneider was a fan of pop and hip hop music as a child, but later became attracted to the storytelling aspect of country music and began singing at the age of 14. After meeting Brett Eldredge at a concert in the singer's hometown (Paris, Illinois), Schneider was invited onstage by Eldredge to perform a song during the latter's performance in Terre Haute. He then began writing and performing songs both around Indiana and in Nashville, Tennessee. Between 2014 and 2016, Schneider posted a number of videos to YouTube of him performing cover versions of popular country songs, which earned him attention online. The first video was posted on May 18, 2014.
Schneider released his debut EP, Wannabe, on August 19, 2016. His second EP, 17, was released the day after Scheneider's seventeenth birthday and reached number 37 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. In February 2017, Schneider released his first radio single, "You Heard Wrong". He released his third EP, Spotlight's on You, on April 14, 2017. The record sold 1,700 copies in its first week, propelling the EP into the top 10 of the Heatseekers Albums chart.
