Darrell Scott returned with a new album and stories to tell! Was great to have this songwriting giant and stunning musician back to Blue Rock.
Twice named Nashville’s Songwriter of the Year, Grammy nominated for both songwriting and performance, Performing Songwriter Magazine dubbed him “the best of the best.”
Born on a tobacco farm in Kentucky, Darrell was part of a musical family. His father, a steelworker and songwriter, made the move to Southern California with the family when Darrell was 11. Darrell and his four brothers soon began playing in his father’s band and he carried that on-the-job training into a career of his own. Along the way, Darrell earned a degree in poetry from Tufts University before making the move to Nashville.
Darrell Scott has written songs recorded by Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Kathy Mattea, Suzy Bogguss and Guy Clark. “Long Time Gone” was not only a hit for The Dixie Chicks, but garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song. He co-wrote and performed (with Tim O’Brien) “The Second Mouse” which was nominated for Best Country Instrumental Performance. He was also a member in Robert Plant’s Band of Joy alongside Patti Griffin and Buddy Miller.
