Curb Records’ hot breakout artist DYLAN SCOTT earned GOLD certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for his current hit single, “My Girl,” marking the first of his career. Included on his self-titled debut album, he wrote the romantically charged song about his girlfriend – now wife – and all the little things he gets to see in his girl that no one else does. This month, he also checked another career milestone off by headlining a sold-out show at the world famous Troubadour in Los Angeles as part of his MY TOWN TOUR (6/6). Featured on Taste of Country, acclaimed photographer Joseph Llanes was on hand in Los Angeles to capture incredible stage shots and some of the more intimate moments throughout the day. An indicator of Scott’s rising popularity, as soon as the singer launched into his smash “My Girl,” the crowd erupted, chanting the lyrics in unison. The single just climbed to #6 on Mediabase’s Country Radio Airplay chart and #8 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and has surpassed 35 million Spotify streams.
Adding to a series of exciting firsts for the artist – debut album, Top 10 single, Grand Ole Opry performance, sell-out show at the Troubadour, GOLD record – Scott and wife Blair are expecting a child later this year. No word yet on if it will be a boy or if he will have another reason to sing “My Girl.”
After releasing his self-titled debut album, having landed in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, Scott has impressively garnered a total of 100 million radio plays on Pandora and surpassed 170 million on-demand streams on services such as Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. Sounds Like Nashville applauded the album for being “well rounded and genre-bending,” while Taste of Country praised, “The 13-track album is versatile, combining Scott’s love of traditional country with distinct pop and urban influences.”
Scott is playing select dates throughout the U.S. and Canada the summer. Stay tuned for big news coming soon!
