On The Cover: 2019 ‘MusicRow’ CountryBreakout Awards Issue

Dylan Scott is featured as the cover artist for MusicRow Magazine’s 2019 CountryBreakout Awards Issue, which is available now.

A Louisiana native with a lifelong passion for country music, Scott is the total package—a powerful singer with a deep, resonating drawl; an old-soul songwriter with a young spirit; a heartthrob with an easy smile; and a dreamer who followed his father’s footsteps to Nashville. Prior to landing his record deal, he learned the basics of singing and playing guitar from his dad—a former guitar player for country legends Freddy Fender and Freddie Hart.

Scott launched onto the country music scene with “Making This Boy Go Crazy,” the debut single from his self-titled EP. His follow-up, the infectious “Crazy Over Me,” debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Country Digital Song Sales chart and hit the Top 40 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. Scott’s debut album for Curb Records, DYLAN SCOTT, landed in the Top 5 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and its romantic standout RIAA Platinum-certified single, “My Girl,” became his first career No. 1 at country radio.

Continuing the momentum, his latest single, “Hooked,” has been streamed nearly 100 million times and is certified Gold. Fans have streamed Scott’s songs an impressive 545 million times and counting, and sales have topped 4 million song equivalent sales—figures that continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Scott’s headlining Nothing To Do Town Tour kicked off in January in New York City.
