Scott Lindsey is a country music singer from Kentucky.
From Scott Lindsey's MySpace:
Scott Lindsey comes from the country. Born in Beaver Dam, Kentucky, in the same county as Bluegrass legend Bill Monroe and raised just down a country road from Merle Travis's hometown. That's fertile ground for a budding singer/songwriter.
Scott's talent was nurtured by his mother's love of classic rock and by his father, a honky-tonk performer who co-wrote with Songwriting Hall of Famer, Tommy Collins. "Tommy and dad would critique my songs when I was just 12 or 13. It was very cool." Scott was influenced by the likes of Randy Travis, Steve Wariner and Rodney Crowell. He picked up the guitar by watching great musicians like his cousin Paul Moseley, a member of The Thumb-Pickers Hall-of-Fame. Says Scott, "People like that around just jamming and playing new songs at home was a priceless learning experience".
After high school Scott headed for Nashville to study music. He attended Belmont University and finished his degree at MTSU. Though he'll tell you, "I probably got as much education from the clubs as I did in the classroom." Now a seasoned performer, he has played thousands of shows at top venues such as Billy Bob's and Antone's in Texas, The Barn in Rosine, KY, Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon and the world famous Bluebird Café. Along the way, Scott has opened for the likes of Ronnie McDowell, Exile, Chris Young, and Jason Aldean.
A well-respected songwriter, Lindsey has written with hit makers Harley Allen, 2005 BMI Songwriter of the Year ("The Baby", "The Little Girl"), Kyle Cook of MatchBox Twenty, Kim Williams ("Three Wooden Crosses") and Will Nance ("She's Everything") among others. He has also had cuts by other artists including Jesse & Noah Bellamy, Americana Awards Nominee, Buck Jones and The Michael Klein Band.
Legendary manager Don Dortch who helped catapult the careers of Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Floyd, Charlie Rich and Ronnie McDowell, says, "Scott has the total package".
Scott is currently in the studio working on his debut single & video. With his rich classic voice, his songs will take you down memory lane in the warm style of a Keith Whitley ballad then kick into high gear with all the rockin' edge of a Montgomery Gentry anthem. This is good homegrown country music...no matter what part of the country you come from.For more information about Scott:
