Nashville talent agency APA has signed Texas group Scooter Brown Band. APA Nashville will handle the band’s domestic and international bookings, with consulting by David Corlew of David Corlew & Associates, who also manages The Charlie Daniels Band.

“Scott and the Scooter Brown Band were a pleasant surprise to me. How they present their music and the approach to playing live is reminiscent of the way it happened in the 70’s with the Charlie Daniels Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Marshall Tucker Band,” said Corlew. “Their work ethic is unbelievable. The sound of Southern music is alive and well.”

Led by Marine Corps combat veteran Scott Brown, the band has released the singles “Hard Times” and “Olivia” from their self-titled album.

“We strongly believe in introducing young acts to new markets, and it’s always exciting to develop one as invigorating as Scooter Brown Band,” commented Steve Lassiter, Partner and Head of Concerts for APA Nashville. “With their current fan base and infrastructure, I’m confident we will reach new heights together.”

“We’re extremely excited to be signing with APA,” added Brown. “It’s a huge step for the band, and pretty awesome to see our name on a roster full of many of the artists who’ve inspired us. We’re all looking forward to a long, successful relationship with the APA family!”
