Ray Scott

In the 1970s, country music was hijacked by rebel artists who decided it was time to do things their own way. "Damn the establishment" was the battle cry for guys like Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams, Jr.. For these artists, music was more than a commodity, more than just good times (although they certainly enjoyed plenty of the latter); it was heart and soul, it was about coloring outside the lines and playing the game by your own rules. That type of authenticity and passion lives on in the music of Ray Scott. The son of a country singer, Scott grew up in Northern Carolina with what folks there call "real" country music. Listed alongside his influences -- legendary singer/songwriters such as Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson -- is Ray Sr., Scott's father. Ray Sr.'s music had a profound effect on his son: "I realize more all the time that listening to his versions and comparing them to the originals I heard on the radio taught me a lot about how to make a song your own," Scott says.

After slugging it out with his own band in North Carolina, Scott headed to Atlanta and obtained an Associate's degree at the Music Business Institute. It wasn't long before the singer made his way to Nashville -- the promised land for a young man with traditional country music burning in his soul. Time in the trenches learning the craft of songwriting led to a deal with publisher Tom Collins. Scott's first taste of music city success came as a songwriter after Randy Travis ("Pray for the Fish,") and Clay Walker ("A Few Questions") recorded his songs. It wasn't long before Warner Brothers Nashville came calling. In December 2005 the label released Scott's old-school debut, My Kind of Music. For hardcore country music fans the album was a breath of fresh air. Scott's rumbling baritone and bona fide outlaw style quickly won him a dedicated following, even though three singles from My Kind of Music stiffed on the charts. With Scott at the wheel, it looked like country music was in good hands and heading back to a more traditionally based sound. Despite little support from radio, My Kind of Music sold a respectable 100,000 copies. Scott set to work on his sophomore album for Warner Brothers in 2007. Unfortunately, country's love affair with pop music was far from over and, after recording a number of songs for album number two, Scott and Warner Brothers parted ways. In 2008 Scott independently released Crazy Like Me, a raw and raucous collection of meat and potatoes country music. In 2011, Scott returned with Rayality. A year later, he released the single, "Those Jeans." ~ Todd Sterling, Rovi

I just got to see Ray Scott on an evening cruise in Prince William Sound in Alaska. He is great!!!
I heard this in prison and never knew who it was.Thanks Pandora.What a great diddy.
Ray Scott is the REAL DEAL! Old school country music sound which is a dying breed in today's country music. IF you can even call today's music country.
My all time favorite Ray Scott song is LARISSA UNLEASHED. Its so authentic and true.
Ray Scott is REAL!!!! This is how country is supposed to sound!!!!

Country on the Beach in Key West - He's gonna be there! Can't wait!
Ray Scott plays and sings from the heart. We could use more music like this. I grow tired of the computer generated country pop that bubble gumers listen to that flood the air waves....
Thats Genuine Good S**t!
Please add his new stuff!
This dude reminds me of the old outlaws I grew up listenin' to!
A true inspiration to Plowboys and Coyboys all over the land....Wish he'd come to Georgia more often. My Kind of Music is one of the GREATEST All TIME country albums...Suc k s that he doesn't get the notoriety he deserves by peers and the establishmen t alike. Hank Williams III is in the same boat. We the fans, still love em and support em though!!
ray scott is the man! flew from pittsburgh to nashville to watch him live! What a show! way cool!! keep it up ray!!
I've seen him twice in concert. Just a pure country artist. Also enjoyed a beverage with him and my buddies after one of the shows. One of the nicest, down to Earth individual you could ever meet. His second album is as good if not better than his first. can't wait to see him again in concert.
fu**ing awesome!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
