An old soul with a young spirit … a dreamer who imagined himself following his father's path to Nashville … a man's man with a lifelong love for hunting and country music … and a heartthrob whose wide smile and deep-voiced Louisiana drawl have already turned many a woman's head.
Even in the tide of hopeful young singers rising daily in Music City, Dylan Scott stands out. It takes just a few seconds to hear why: after Scott's vocal begins on "Crazy Over Me," intimate, even conversational, and then soars on a rush of buoyant emotion, you know something special is underway.
Not just this song, mind you -- we're talking about a career. Dylan Scott's respect for traditional country, embrace of multiple modern genres, unique voice and welcoming personality guarantee his success in country music for years to come.
Scott's vocal on his No. 1 single "My Girl" spans a vast range of expressions, from the intensity of the choruses to the spoken-word interlude, and plays out a true story that Dylan remarks was “ten years in the making”. The song, written about Dylan’s girlfriend at the time, and now wife, has already garnered the attraction of legions of female fans. Millions of them, in fact. Dylan’s attention to the digital space has created unusually large crowds at his live performances with fans singing practically every word to every one of his songs all across the US and Canada.
As one of the most successful, recent developing artists stories, Dylan Scott has and is riding a wave of momentum into the release of the deluxe version of his self-titled debut. Having been named one of Spotify’s Spotlight on Country Artists, along with AT&T giving him the tremendous nod of adding him to their short-list of “About To Break” artists, fans have already consumed millions of plays on new music through his engagement across social media and streaming. Following the success of his debut single, “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy”, “Crazy Over Me” debuted at #14 on the Billboard Sales Chart, “My Girl” has run away as a career-changing song for Dylan, and new single “Hooked” is sure to be the next.
*Update: As of July 2017, Dylan achieved that No. 1 goal, as “My Girl” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart. The song has also been certified Gold by the RIAA for sales of 500,000.
Dylan Scott's next big step is just around the corner. Stand by … there's much more to come.
