Bigride Records artist Marlee Scott has officially released her debut U.S. single, “Beautiful Maybe,” to Country radio.
For the past several weeks, Scott has been on the road visiting radio stations across the country in support of “Beautiful Maybe,” which was co-written by chart-topping Nashville songwriters Marcus Hummon (Rascal Flatts, Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw), Tia Sillers (Dixie Chicks, Pam Tillis, Lee Ann Womack) and Tania Hancheroff. Acclaimed producer/engineer David Kalmusky (Journey, Emerson Drive, The Wilkinsons) produced the single.
Scott’s national, multi-leg radio tour kicked off in early June and continues through the summer, with several performance appearances booked when her busy schedule allows. On June 18, Scott performed at a Cincinnati Reds baseball game, where she sang both the U.S. and Canadian national anthems. Scott was born in Ontario, Canada, but has lived in Nashville since 2007. She makes another baseball game appearance on July 3 when she performs the anthem at an Astros game in Houston, Texas.
“Beautiful Maybe” is Scott’s first U.S. single. Her previous release, “Here to Heaven,” achieved Top 20 status in Canada and Australia and went to No. 1 in England, Germany and Holland. The talented singer-songwriter received a 2010 nomination in the Rising Star category at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards (CCMAs), as well as a 2011 nomination at the Canadian Radio Music Awards.
I like radio tours – I’ve had a lot of opportunities to meet some of our new country artists while they were making their rounds from city to city, and radio station to radio station. It seems Marlee has already made a name for herself in Canada, and now she’s reaching out to her American audience. We’ll have to wait and see what happens. You can go to her home page and listen to “Beautiful Maybe”. Also be sure to check out her tour dates, and sign up for e-mail updates on what she’s doing and where she’s going next.
Here’s one of Marlee’s YouTube videos for you. It’s “I Hold Your Hand”. I’m not sure how old this one is, but I really like it.
I’ll get back to you all soon – I’m super busy right now. Playing ‘catch-up’ after being away for a few days – and planning another trip in the very near future. But, I’ll get more up for you all soon. And, I’m going to try to get some mail answered tonight as well.
Hate a great Tuesday!
