Everything You Wanted to Know About On the Outside's Dawson Huckabee

If you've been swooning over the country-pop boy band On the Outside lately, you are far from alone.

OTO offers something a little bit different from the other ensembles out there, and we've been keeping a close eye on them the last couple of years as they've been releasing tune after catchy tune, and their Make Positivity Go Viral campaign is spreading the love even further.

We thought it was about time we got to get to know the boys a little better, and this week, we're doing that by featuring member Dawson Huckabee as our Man Crush Monday.
