A native of the small northeastern Louisiana town of Bastrop, Dylan Scott
grew up with a passion for music in general, and country music in
particular, and a deep and profound love and respect for the outdoors. More
than anything else, those two traits define who Dylan Scott is and what
gives him direction and purpose in life. Dylan's father, a former guitar
player for country legends Freddy Fender and Freddy Hart, taught Dylan at an
early age the basics of singing and playing guitar and thus introduced him
to the world of music.
Growing up, Dylan ran with his buddies, played ball, went hunting and
fishing, and in general had a normal rural upbringing... with one exception.
While his friends were looking forward to going to college, joining the
military, or trying to figure out what they were going to do with their
lives, Dylan was focused on only one thing... going to Nashville to become a
country music singer. He was constantly honing the skills necessary to be
successful by mastering the guitar, learning to play piano, dabbling with
songwriting, and working on his vocal skills. While still in school, he
performed as a solo act at such prestigious venues as the Louisiana Hayride
and also toured the southeast as a member of a teenage gospel trio,
performing at small festivals, fairs, and churches.
At the age of 17 on a trip to Nashville, Dylan met songwriter Charlie Craig
and recorded four songs with Craig as producer. One of those tunes, "Between
an Old Memory and Me" was written by Craig and had been a huge hit for a
singer that Dylan had idolized since childhood, Keith Whitley. Dylan's
stellar version of the song soon caught the attention of record company
executives and he signed a long term recording contract with Curb Records.
With famed producer and music label icon Jim Ed Norman at the helm, Dylan
recorded numerous songs, one of which "Making This Boy go Crazy" went on to
establish Dylan as an emerging country artist with a bright future. To date,
the song has sold in excess of 130,000 units with well over 2.5 millions
views of the accompanying music video. Always being appreciative of music in
other genres, Dylan recently recorded a cover of the massive Ed Sheeran pop
hit "Thinking Out Loud" and filmed a hip black and white music video which
he posted to Face Book. Within the first hour, 29,000 people had viewed the
video and the numbers started growing exponentially until reaching well over
1.5 million views in less than two weeks. Curb Records quickly made the
song available on I-Tunes and in excess of 20,000 were sold within a short
period of time, clearly demonstrating that Dylan has cross over potential to
people of other genres of music. Even more impressive was that this was
accomplished without the benefit of any radio airplay whatsoever.
With his career in full swing, Dylan is quickly establishing himself as a
force to be reckoned with in country music. His social media stats are
exploding and his live show is proving that Dylan is an exceptional
entertainer as well as being a world-class vocalist. Booked by the world
renown William Morris Endeavor, he is busy traveling the country performing
in venues of every type and working hard to establish the fan base that will
be necessary to propel him to the next level.
Dylan is currently in the studio working on new music and is scheduled to
have his next single released to radio sometime during the summer of 2015.
When not recording, writing, or touring with his band, he normally leaves
his home in Nashville and heads back to Louisiana see family and friends and
to hit the woods in his four wheeler, go hunting, or doing any number of
outdoor activities that he loves so much.
