When you grow up in the middle-of-nowhere Northeast Louisiana, a 20-minute drive from the nearest town, you learn a few lessons early on. Chief among them is this: If you want something done, you’ve got to make it happen yourself – even if it’s becoming a bona fide Country star. Just ask Curb Records talent Dylan Scott.
Scott has lived by that mantra his whole life, and lately he’s been rewarded for the effort. With his romantic, PLATINUM-certified #1 hit “My Girl,” GOLD-certified Top 5 smash “Hooked,” and Top 5 breakout album DYLAN SCOTT
, he’s transformed real-life experience into chart-topping success, sold out some of the nation’s most famous venues on headline tours, and performed for millions on national TV. And now with his electrifying NOTHING TO DO TOWN - EP
, a new chapter begins – one that proves no matter how far Scott comes, he won’t forget where he started.
Lucky for him, Scott’s roots run deep in Country music. His father played guitar for stars like Freddy Fender and Freddie Hart, regaling the youngster with stories from the road and encouraging a love for soul-bearing icons like Keith Whitley, Alan Jackson, and Tim McGraw. Scott was still in high school when he arrived in Nashville to chase his own dreams, but his drive to succeed was obvious from the start.
He began writing songs with anyone who was willing, and hit the road hard for up to 200 shows each year. Then, after a blistering rise through the Country ranks, his bootstrap-pulling work ethic paid off. “My Girl” shot to the top of the radio charts in the summer of 2016, earning Scott his first-ever PLATINUM certification and revealing an artist with a knack for hot-and-heavy sensitivity plus a strong connection to fans, having surpassed 200 million views on YouTube alone with intense social media support.
Fans got the message, and Scott’s self-titled album debut landed at #5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, helping boost his digital totals to over 600 million on-demand streams with sales topping 4 million to date. He made a triumphant Grand Ole Opry debut and commanded crowds exceeding 20,000 fans spanning his nearly sold-out NOTHING TO DO TOWN TOUR 2019. The addictive passion behind “Hooked” earned Scott another smash, becoming a GOLD-certified #2 and propelling him to be selected among Country Radio Seminar 2019’s New Faces of Country Music® Class of 2019 – a coveted industry honor recognizing him as one of the most promising artists of the coming year. But even amidst all that success, Scott is still looking home.
Together, the tracks on NOTHING TO DO TOWN mark the turning of a page for Scott, an artist whose red-hot rising stock is proven by the fact he just scored his first ever award nomination – up for Best New Country Artist at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Things are about to get even crazier for Scott, as the dedicated father and family man can now say with certainty he’s making his dreams happen. But according to him, the lessons instilled by that “Nothing to Do Town” won’t fade.
