Dylan Scott grew up in northern Louisiana where he fell in love with country music and the great outdoors. He says those two things give him purpose in life. His father was a former guitar player for Freddy Fender and Freddy Hart, so he was raised in a musically talented family. In fact, his father was the one who taught him how to play guitar and sing at a young age.
Dylan was a typical young boy, playing ball with friends, hunting, and fishing. Throughout high school, he learned to play other instruments, wrote songs, and developed his vocal skills. He also performed at small gatherings throughout Louisiana. But when his friends began deciding on colleges or going to the military, Dylan was looking forward to pursuing his dreams as a country music singer.
Developing His Career
He went to Nashville at the age of 17 where he met and recorded four songs with producer Charlie Craig. Dylan’s version of one of the songs turned heads at Curb Records who he later signed a recording contract with. He quickly became an emerging artist, sure to have a solid future in country music.
Though country music is Dylan Scott’s specialty, he enjoys other music genres and proves he has cross over potential. By showing his versatility, Dylan gained popularity in such a short period of time and is sure to continue rising. His cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” was viewed by 29,000 people in just the first hour. It drew so much attention in a short amount of time without the help of radio! Curb Records then made the song available on iTunes.
