Dylan Scott Releases Brand New Song “Static” Ahead of New Project

Dylan Scott’s new song “Static” is available everywhere today, October 1st. The song marks his second new release as he gears up for a future project.

As his recent summer release and current radio single, “New Truck”, climbs the charts, Dylan Scott dropped another brand new track, “Static”, out today. With promises of a new full length album coming soon, “Static” and “New Truck” are the first taste of what fans can expect to hear on the future project. In an exclusive interview with us this past summer, Scott shared, “We did a lot of writing and recording during quarantine. It’s more of what I’ve done in the past, but at a more mature level and I think the lyrics reflect that”.

Learn some fast facts about the singer-songwriter in our ’60 Seconds with Dylan Scott’ video below.

About the song, Scott says that “”Static” is a song that relates to a lot of people’s lives, including mine, to a T. You grow up in a small town, and all you can think about is leaving that small town, chasing a dream, chasing a dollar, moving to a bigger city. And once you get there, it’s all great. But sometimes you’ve just got to get back out in the middle of nowhere, back to your roots, where there’s nothing but a little static on the radio.”

“There’s something “’bout a red dirt road that makes the sky more blue // there’s something ‘bout the concrete that scrapes the roots right off of you // I moved here ‘cause making dollars made good sense // something ‘bout them city limits feels more like a fence, yeah”

The new song is about taking a break from the fast-paced city life, getting back to your roots and finding a spot where you can clear your head for a while, relax and reconnect with yourself.

“Shake all the dust out of my head // Put it on this truck instead // Toss some empties in the bed, out where nobody knows // You can find me where you can’t // No one near, no where to stay // Turn down a road I know to take that’s gonna save my soul // Crank up and gas it til’ there’s static on the radio”

Dylan Scott Brand New Song “New Truck” + Exclusive Interview

Dylan Scott’s brand new song “New Truck” is available now, July 23rd on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

On the heels of earning his second number one single with “Nobody,” Dylan Scott is ready for the next chapter in his blossoming career. With a promise of a new record coming soon, Scott debuted a brand new song. “New Truck” is officially out now.

The catchy new song was written by incredible singer-songwriters, HARDY and Hunter Phelps with top songwriters Ben Johnson and Ashley Gorley. As soon as HARDY sent that track over to Scott, he knew he wanted to cut it. Ironically though, the singer sharedin our recent interview, “When I’m listening to music, I’d rather not know who the songwriters are at first listen,” in order to give a fair chance to all the budding songwriters.

“I was gonna drive it // Till the wheels fell off // Yeah that was before she slammed the door // Said it’s over then got lost // I need one she ain’t climbed up in // That ain’t played her favorite songs // Need some glass that we ain’t fogged up // that her barefoot ain’t been on”

The song portrays a break-up in a new and interesting way. “I was in the truck when they sent it to me,” shares Scott in an exclusive interview with Country Swag. “It’s an uptempo breakup song.” The singer went on to share, “It’s basically about this guy and this girl, they break up, still every time he hops into his truck, he finds that memories of her pop up in his head.” From the start, Scott knew how relatable the song would be to his fans, and we could not agree more!

As far as what fans can expect, the singer shared that a new album is on the horizon. “We did a lot of writing and recording during quarantine,” shares Scott, adding “It’s more of what I’ve done in the past, but at a more mature level and I think the lyrics reflect that.”

“New Truck” is country music’s first taste of what the singer has up his sleeve and Scott shares that we can definitely expect a new full-length album soon.

Dylan Scott’s “Nobody” Earns Him a #1 Single at Country Radio

Dylan Scott’s “Nobody” rises to the top of the country music charts, earning him his second number one single at country radio.

This week Dylan Scott’s current radio single, “Nobody” is the number one song on the charts! It is hard to believe that this marks only the second number-one single of his career since his song “My Girl” flew up the charts a few years ago.
“Nobody” was an instant hit, since it was released two years ago. Both catchy and romantic, the song appealed to country music lovers everywhere. In this song, Scott combines his talent for creating catchy romance songs with adding a unique flavor to his music.
“I know how you like your coffee // And how hot you like your bath // I know what makes you angry // And what makes you laugh // I know the taste of your lips // Every inch of your skin // The little things that turn you on // I know that look in your eyes when they look back at mine…”

Since the beginning, it has been clear that fans and country radio alike adore this side of Scott’s talent. We imagine that he will have more number ones to come if he continues on this trajectory. Congrats to Dylan Scott and his team on “Nobody” going number one at country radio!

Dylan Scott Performs at Intimate Event at DREAM Hotel in NYC

Dylan Scott NYC

On a grey blustery New York City day, country music might not be your first choice to set the mood, but when we heard Dylan Scott was playing an acoustic set for a few fans at the DREAM Hotel, it quickly became the ideal way to spend a Saturday.

CURB Records put on this event, for Scotts’s last show of 2019 before heading home to Louisiana for his son’s birthday party. Playing for a crowd of only 20 people changes the dynamics of the space, and seems to put everyone at ease and enjoy the camaraderie and experience of something intimate.

The singer-songwriter started off right away with a song and a story about how Morgan Evans, married to Kelsea Ballerini, wrote a song in response to her song, “Peter Pan” called “Hooked”, but never recorded it and let him record it. An acoustic set has its own innate beauty and sound, but it was only further emphasized by Dylan’s raw and deep voice. Never having any voice lessons, he grew up on his dad’s lap, while his dad played guitar singing Confederate Railroad’s “Trashy Women”, perfect for a 3-year old. It’s unbelievable that that kind of voice can come without training, but just hard work and passion for music. He played a new song, “Killin’ Some Time”, that stays in his wheelhouse but is wrought with true emotion that just emanates from it. His inspiration came from Keith Whitley, and that somehow he always knew he wanted to do this and is so grateful that the fans make it possible.

Dylan Scott NYC

He played “Anniversary”, with a bridge of Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like”, that fit so well and shows how he can so easily manage the crossover between country and pop. He followed with a new song, “Lay Down With You” and finished with the one that made it all possible, “My Girl”. Unfortunately, he didn’t play any Christmas songs off his new album, but we quickly added the record to our Country Christmas playlist.

Always a fan of Dylan Scott, we have even more respect and love for him, as he continues to put his family first, but still maintains music in his heart that he’s trying to spread with his fans.

Luke Bryan’s ‘Sunset Repeat’ Tour Hits Long Island, NY For Two Shows

Luke Bryan Jones Beach

Luke Bryan’s Sunset Repeat Tour stopped in Long Island this past weekend to play two shows at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater. Night one he brought along two Georgia natives, Jon Langston, and Cole Swindell and last night Dylan Scott took the direct support spot.  Not only did NYCountry Swag offer an exclusive ticket presale to our followers, but we also organized a huge tailgate and bus to the venue for the Sunday Night show. Bringing over 100 New York country fans together to enjoy music, food, and drinking games before heading inside to experience the Sunset Repeat Tour from the best seats in the house, right in the pit.

 

Jon Langston opened his half-hour set with his newest release “Now You Know”; a country song with a rock and roll feel. He performed nine songs for the audience including “Right Girl, Wrong Time”, “Dance Tonight”, “Prob’ly at a Bar”, “Forever Girl”, even a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ hit “Won’t Back Down”. He closed with another country-rock song “All Eyes On Us”. Before exiting the stage, the former college football player shot-gunned a beer in about three seconds, signed t-shirts and took selfies with fans. Langston opened up Sunday’s show as well.

Next up was the 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year, Cole Swindell. He began the show with two songs from his latest album All Of It, “Love You Too Late” and “Sounded Good Last Night” then went back to his self-titled first album with songs “Lonely Tonight” and “Hey Y’all”.  Right as the fans were getting energized, Swindell changed the mood of the show with slower songs such as “Middle of a Memory” and “Break Up in the End”. The fans didn’t seem to mind it as they were singing along the whole way through.

If you recall, a few months ago a third-grade teacher, Courtney wrote on social media about a hilarious moment she shared with her students about Cole Swindell and NYCountry Swag arranged for her to finally meet her favorite country artist and tickets to the show on Saturday. Read more about that here.

“Nothing helps me get over a break up better than a party, drinking song”, Swindell admitted before performing a combination of three of his drinking songs, “Brought to You by Beer” from the first album, “No Can Left Behind” from his second album You Should Be Here and “Reason to Drink” from All Of It. These songs provided a good segway into his next and newest song “Drinkin’ Hours”, which he just released on June 21st.

“Make sure y’all appreciate who you still have here tonight,” Swindell said after performing his second number-one single “You Should Be Here”. The track was written in honor of his father, who unexpectedly passed away back in 2013.  The crowd grew even louder when Swindell rattled off three of his biggest hits, “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”, “Let Me See Ya Girl” and his first number one single “Chillin’ It”.

This was not the first time Swindell played Jones Beach Theater. He opened for Florida Georgia Line on their Dig Your Roots Tour in 2016 and Dierks Bentley on his What The Hell Tour. “You guys have had my back since the first time I played this venue so thank y’all”, Swindell praised the boisterous crowd.

Swindell covered shortened versions of “Old Town Road” and “This Is How We Roll”, a song he co-wrote with Florida Georgia Line. He then exited the stage for a few minutes before the fans heard sounds of a heart monitor getting faster and faster; we knew what song was coming next. Swindell closed his set with “Flatliner”, leaving the crowd with the right energy as they await the headliner, Luke Bryan.

Sunset Repeat Tour

Swindell and Bryan have a long history together. They met when Bryan performed a show at Swindell’s Sigma Chi fraternity house at Georgia Southern University, the same school and same frat Bryan was in back in his college days. They stayed in touch and when Swindell graduated college, he went on tour with Bryan, not performing but selling merchandise and writing songs for him. Swindell wrote or co-wrote songs such as “The Sand I Brought to the Beach”, “Beer in the Headlights”, “Roller Coaster” and many more. He opened for Bryan back in 2014 on his That’s My Kind of Night Tour. Swindell, however, did not perform Sunday night as he was in Chicago playing the Windy City Smokeout with Chris Young, LANCO,  Eli Young Band, Ashley McBryde, Jordan Davis, Devin Dawson, and Old Dominion.

It was finally time for Luke Bryan, who came out driving an ATV and performed “What Makes You Country” and “Huntin’, Fishin’, Lovin’ Everyday” standing on top of it. He kept the party going with two singles from Kill The Lights “Kick the Dust Up” and “Move”. Bryan then grabbed an electric guitar and shredded “I See You” from his 2013 album Crash My Party.

“These next two songs are for you, Jones Beach”, Bryan shouted before performing two beach songs in “Roller Coaster” and “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset, Repeat”.  Bryan then took a break to give shout-outs to DJ Rock, Jon Langston and Cole Swindell for keeping everyone entertained. “We got two nights in a row here so that means we can party tonight, get about three hours of sleep, wake up and then do this s**t all over again.” Bryan also mentioned that it is his birthday week so he took another shot of tequila. “Here’s to the coolest, one of the most unique venues in all of North America, right here!” he yelled before doing the shot. “Thank you so much for making two nights happen!”

Before playing “Most People Are Good” he joked about how much he loves drunk mothers but then got serious and said, “mothers are the true saints in this world and if they all qualify for sainthood then they aren’t good people they’re the best people”.

Sandwiched between his first single “Do I” and his newest single “Knockin’ Boots” was “Rain is a Good Thing”. This was a good representation of how Bryan’s career progressed. After “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye” and “Crash My Party” the crew wheeled out the piano which caused an uproar of the fans; “Drink a Beer”, a fan favorite, and “Strip it Down” were next. Fans took out their phones and held up their flashlight as Bryan performed a beautiful rendition of his sad ballad on the piano. Giving the fans a quick insight into next Saturday’s Jones Beach concert, Morgan Wallen surprised the audience on Sunday night when he came out to perform his most recent number one hit, “Whiskey Glasses”. Wallen will perform alongside Dan + Shay, HARDY and headliners Florida Georgia Line on their ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour’ hitting the beach July 20th.  Bryan also invited the openers back to the stage later on in the night to sing a group version of David Lee Murphy’s “Dust On The Bottle”.

 

The superstar performed “Drunk On You”, “I Don’t Want This Night To End”, “Play It Again” and “That’s My Kind of Night” before walking off the stage. However, fans knew an encore was coming as the 2016 Billboard Top Country Artist was yet to play his smash hit “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)”. When he came back out, he gave the fans what they wanted; singing and moving his hips to the catchy, country track. To the surprise of the fans, Bryan came back and performed a song that was not his. He ended his set with a cover of Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer”. An unexpected but brilliant ending to an incredible night at Jones Beach.

Bryan will take Swindell, Langston and the Sunset Repeat Tour to Alabama next weekend but will be back in the New York area on September 7th at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts September 12th.

We want to send a big thank you to everybody who purchased tickets during our presale and joined us for our tailgate party! We’ll see ya at the next show.

 

Keep up with Bryan and the ‘Sunset Repeat Tour’ by following him on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Chris Young Brings the ‘Raised On Country’ Tour to New Jersey

Raised On Country

Photo Credit: Jeff Johnson

Country music fans made their way to the PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey on Sunday night to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with Chris Young’s ‘Raised On Country Tour 2019.’

Dylan Scott kicked off the show, bringing the audience to their feet with a mash-up of his hit “Hooked” and The Black Eyed Peas song, “I Gotta Feeling.” He continued to keep the crowd entertained with his song “Ball Cap” and his newest single and the title track to his latest EP “Nothing To Do Town,”. The entertainer slyly added in “This ain’t no nothing to do town, am I right about that?!,” to which fans erupted into applause.

Dylan Scott

After he introduced himself to the crowd, Scott took time to express the sentiment behind the next song he went on to play, while playing the piano. He shared, “Well, I’ve been with my wife, since I was 15 years old, and we’ve been married three years now. We have a beautiful baby boy and a little girl that’s going to be here in September. And y’all I love doing what I do, I love getting on this stage, and I love performing and singing, and I love the fact that I see y’all smile and singing along. So thank you so much- I appreciate it. But this next song, I looked at my wife, and not in a cocky or an arrogant way, just the truth, and said, “nobody’s going to love you like I love you.” And when I said that, I said that’s a song, and I went and wrote that song. It’s one of my favorite songs that I wrote in the past year, so we’ll play it for you tonight, it’s brand new. It’s called “Nobody.”

Keeping the crowd entertained Scott, went on to sing a medley of 90’s country songs, including “Fishin’ In The Dark,” “Check Yes or No,” and “When You Say Nothing At All.” By the time he ended his set with his first number one song “My Girl,” Scott had won the crowd over and was sure to have garnered many new fans from his performance.

Raised on Country Tour

Continuing to get the audience ready for the headliner, Chris Janson took the stage next with an unbelievable amount of energy. From start to finish, Janson was jumping around on stage, playing the harmonica, and singing a mixture of songs he wrote, covers, and of course, his own hits. Underneath his namesake sign, utilizing an official Grand Ole Opry microphone, and with a full band there to support him, the singer-songwriter exploded on to the stage with his song, “Redneck Life,” immediately getting fans on their feet, singing and dancing along. Fans continued to match his energy throughout his entire set.

After signing, “Everybody,” Janson took some time to acknowledge the service men and women in the audience, while still continuing the party. “I really am thankful to wake up free in this country. If you have served, please be recognized- will you raise your hand, please be recognized. Thank you for your service. It is a privilege- we raise a toast to you tonight for the sacrifice you’ve made to our country and to us as Americans. I’ll also raise a toast to your health and happiness! […] So now let’s sing a number 1 song, and have a party. Here’s one called “Fix A Drink.”

At this point, every single person was on their feet, jamming along with the entertainer and holding their drinks in air, even during his newest song, “Good Vibes,” his track, “White Trash,” and the cover of a song he had written for LOCASH called “I Love This Life.” Afterward, Janson decided to slow it down a bit, singing a mesmerizing cover of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man,” and his impactful song, “Drunk Girl.” The sky was lit up by the fan’s flashlights on their phones, making it a moment that neither Janson or the audience will ever forget.

Janson ended his set on a high note, jamming to Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah,” and even playing some drums, just before singing one of the song’s that started it all for him, “Buy Me a Boat.”

Raised on Country Tour

Under a neon ‘CY’ sign and accompanied by a full band, Chris Young took the stage next, beginning with his latest number one hit “Hangin’ On.” Young went on to sing nineteen songs, including, “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” and “Lonely Eyes.” The former being his first number one song and the later making its way to number two on the charts.

After singing a crowd favorite, “Lonely Eyes,” Young interacted with the audience, sharing, “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been parked behind this building somewhere because I was opening for someone else. It’s my honor and my pleasure to be here tonight,” adding, “This is the ‘Raised On Country Tour.’ We’re going to be playing a whole bunch of random stuff for you guys tonight. We might play a couple of new things off the new record that’s getting ready to come out this year. We’ve been in the studio doing a lot of work on that. […] We’ve got a whole bunch of stuff we’re going to announce really soon, but most importantly, all of this was only possible because you guys care anything about me getting up here playing music, so we’re going to play some country music for you guys tonight.”

Young’s set included some of his biggest radio hits, including “Losing Sleep,” “Think of You,” “Tomorrow,” “You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over,” which all went number one on the country charts. The entertainer made sure to sing both fan favorite tracks, including, the rowdy, “Hold My Beer,” the heartfelt tracks, “Who I Am With You,” and “The Man I Want To Be.”

One of the highlights of the night was when Young sang his newest song to go to country radio, the lead single off his upcoming album, “Raised On Country.” The crowd screamed back the lyrics to each and every song, but were especially loud during the new song, giving their approval of the track to Young. He even shared on Twitter that the crowd “Broke the audience volume record” for his career. Right before singing the new track, Young got a little help from the country music family, as images and videos of fellow country musicians flashed before our eyes on the big screens as they shared some love for the country music that they were raised on. Artists included the men from Brothers Osborne, Brett Young, Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina, Morgan Evans, Cassadee Pope, and more talented artists.

Raised on Country Tour

Another awesome moment came when Young sang a cover of Garth Brooks iconic song, “Papa Loved Mama.” Guitar in hand, the recording artist jammed to the catchy song, as the audience danced and sang along. Young continued the momentum, singing his ode to beer and country music in, “Save Water, Drink Beer.”

Leaving it all out on the stage, Young closed out the night with the high-energy song, “Aw Naw.” The concert was the perfect kick-off to the unofficial start of summer and concert season. For those willing to travel, Young, Janson, and Scott will bring the ‘Raised On Country Tour’ to Connecticut’s Xfinity Theatre on June 14th.

NYCS First Impression: Dylan Scott ‘Nothing To Do Town’ EP

Dylan Scott Nothing To Do Town

After major success with his debut self-titled album, including two Top 5 hits, “My Girl” and “Hooked,” singer-songwriter Dylan Scott has finally released a new project. Today, the Louisiana native dropped his EP, Nothing to Do Town, featuring his radio single- the title track, and five other heartfelt songs.

Calling it his most personal collection of songs to date, Scott co-penned five of the six songs off the EP, including the title track. “Nothing To Do Town” is upbeat and catchy. The hitmaker draws inspiration from his Northeast Louisiana roots, paying homage to the refreshing and uncomplicated life of small-town living. The song is at the 35 spot on the Billboard Country charts and continues to rise.

Throughout the months before the EP’s release, the entertainer shared some of the other tracks off the record, “You Got Me” and “Nobody.” The former is a passionate love song seemingly inspired by his wife; despite, being the only song Scott doesn’t receive writing credits on. The slow jam features catchy and relatable lyrics that would make a great single. Also a love song, “Nobody” shows a confident side to Scott, as he sings about unmatched passion in his romantic relationship.

Another love song on the record, “Anniversary” is one that fans may recognize. Although not released until today, the track is a song that Scott has posted clips of him singing on his social media, as well as performed during some of his live shows. The slow burn features the entertainer’s sultry vocals that add to the sexy and romantic nature of the song. “With skin that smooth / It’s hard to keep my hands off you / Got a few things in mind I want to do / Baby / Why save it / When I can lay you down now and later / Put some rose petals out on the sheets / Make this bedroom feel like a suite / Girl you know we ain’t even gotta leave / Tonight I’ll love you like / Love you like it’s our anniversary.”

Scott continues to make fans swoon with the empowering “Look At Us Now.” The deeply personal track, which mentions the singer’s baby boy, Beckett, is a celebratory song about his relationship with his wife, Blair and all they’ve accomplished as a family. It’s got an ‘us against the world” mentality, but any couple in love can definitely relate. Additionally, the musical arrangement and the mix of genres makes the song feel like one only Scott can deliver. “Living that good life with you baby / Everybody thought that we were crazy / But look at us now, look at us now / Baby, look at us now”

The hitmaker continues to find his sweet spot with “Honey I’m Home,” a song about feeling safe and at home, wherever his love is. Reminiscent of his hits “My Girl,” and “Passenger Seat,” the track is “…another song about you babe,” meaning his wife. Scott’s talent is undeniable, as he delivers track after track that would work well on the radio, at live shows, and with lyrics that connect so profoundly to the listener. “Honey I’m Home” is another jam that fits right into his signature sound.

Overall, Scott delivers a solid EP that is sure to get fans excited for his future full-length album. The record is the ultimate love letter to his wife, his son, his fans, and his hometown, making it well-rounded and enticing, just as an EP should be.

Scott recently wrapped up his headlining ‘Nothing to Do Town Tour.’ We caught the sold-out show on opening night at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre back in January. The singer-songwriter will return to the tri-state area on Sunday, May 26th at PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey, as an opener for Chris Young’s ‘Raised on Country Tour.’ For tickets and more information head to dylanscottcountry.com.

To keep up with Scott, follow him on on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Nothing To Do Town EP is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Riley Green played the two songs he recently released, “Bettin’ Man” and his upcoming single “In Love By Now.” He also sang his unreleased track “Get That Man A Beer” and his radio smash hit “There Was This Girl,” which is currently #3 on both Billboard and Mediabase charts.

Next, Rich introduced his potential upcoming single “Leave Her Wild” by saying “Has anyone had a controlling ex?” The lyrics are “If you’re going to make her do something, make her smile; If you’re going let her dance, let her sing, let her be whoever she wants to be; leave her wild.” He explained the song is about “happy wife, happy life” and loving a girl for just the way she is.

In the next round, Dylan Scott and Jimmie Allen played their biggest songs and even brought out a special guest. Allen started out the night by playing the first song on his album Mercury Lane “American Heartbreaker” to get the crowd started. Scott opened up with his catchy, smash hit “Hooked” and the crowd was screaming the lyrics. He was very interactive with the crowd, even roses were being thrown up on stage to his band.

The singer-songwriter told stories behind his songs especially about his high school sweetheart turned wife and how they’re expecting their second child. Allen brought out his surprise guest, Abby Anderson to sing their collab on the resonating “Shallow” duet by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Anderson also sang her sassy, southern new single coming out tomorrow called “Good Lord.”  From the crowd’s participation and enthusiasm, it’s safe to say country music is a fan favorite on Long Island.

Dylan Scott Sings “Nobody” in a 100-Year-Old Church

Gearing up for the April release of his EP Nothing to Do Town, singer-songwriter Dylan Scott released another song entitled “Nobody.” The track follows previously released title track, “Nothing to Do Town” and most recently, the ballad, “You Got Me.” The hitmaker premiered “Nobody” with a stripped-down live video performance of the song.

Scott titled the video “Nobody (The Nashville Sessions),” leading fans to believe that there may be more live videos for new songs in the future. The video was filmed at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios, a 100-year-old Gothic Revival-style grey stone church with its stained glass acting as a backdrop and a full-band acting as support. The singer-songwriter’s smooth and passionate vocals were on full display, as he belts the lyrics into a microphone.

Girl nobody, nobody, nobody, gonna love you like I do / Yeah nobody, nobody, nobody, gonna love you like I do / I’m gonna love you till the good Lord comes back for me you /Yeah nobody, nobody, nobody gonna love you like I do,” he sings in the catchy chorus.

 The song is a slow-paced and confident love song, co-written by Scott. The lyrics tell the story of a man noticing the attention his partner is getting but reassured by the fact that “nobody” can match their passion, affection, and love for each other. The song has a similar vibe to Scott’s past hit song, “My Girl.”

Currently, Scott is on the road with country singer, Seth Ennis, on his headlining ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour.’ We caught the tour at the sold-out show at Gramercy Theatre in midtown Manhattan back in January. Check out our recap of the night here. For more tour dates and ticket information head to dylanscottcountry.com. Scott will also be performing at CMA Fest in Nashville this June at the free Riverfront Stage.
