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.

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 »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels
Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire.

Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band.
Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»
