LOGAN, W.Va. — The Coalfield Jamboree will host country singer Dylan Scott in concert Thursday, April 28, beginning at 7 p.m.
Scott, a native of Bastrop, La., top songs include “Crazy Over Me”, “Love Yourself”, “Lay It On Me” and “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy.”
According to his biography, 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. Scott’s father, a former guitar player for country legends Freddy Fender and Freddy Hart, taught him at an early age the basics of singing and playing guitar and thus introduced him to the world of music.
In his youth, Scott 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, Tenn., Scott recorded four songs, one of those tunes, “Between an Old Memory and Me” had been a huge hit for Keith Whitley. Scott’s version of the song caught the attention of record company executives and he signed a long term recording contract with Curb Records.
Again, Scott will be in concert Thursday, April 28, at the Coalfield Jamboree in Logan beginning at 7 p.m. For ticket information, call 304-752-2900 or 304-687-8511.
