Brice tabs tour opener
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
– Dylan Scott will open shows for label mate Lee Brice on his upcoming 2016 tour.
Scott, who has yet to release an album for Curb Records, also will be on the Life off My Years tour with Tyler Farr.
"Dylan is an incredible performer, and both Tyler and I felt he'd be a great fit for this tour," said Brice. "We're proud to have him on the road with us."
Scott, 25, has sales of more than 335,000 units since he launched his debut single, "Makin' This Boy Crazy" in 2013. His latest creative effort is a video series he premiered in August called the "Stripped Series." The collection of acoustic videos includes his new single "Crazy Over Me.".
"I have a huge respect for Lee Brice as an artist and songwriter. I can't wait to get on the road with he and Tyler," said Scott, a Bastrop, La. native. He released a self-titled EP in February 2014.

Merry Christmas EP
Dylan Scott's star is shining bright these days, with his self-titled full debut scoring high with fans while its hit song, "My Girl," topped the chart.

And for Scott's fans, there's plenty to enjoy here. Scott's vocals are rich and homey, colored with just enough of that deep country twang to keep »»»
Dylan Scott isn't breaking any ground with "Deluxe Edition." It doesn't say anything new or unique in the genre of country. That being said, many tracks are catchy and stand out solely for being fun to listen to.
"My Girl" is an example of this dichotomy. Although the hit love song leads the album, its contents are a little shallow. You can tell the titular girl is cool because she likes Jesus and sports and looks pretty without make-up on, and she »»»

Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
