Dylan Scott Sells Out Opening Night of His Tour in NYC

Dylan Scott Nothing To Do Town Tour

Not too many country artists can say that they have sold out shows in New York City but Dylan Scott is now one of the few.  Last night, as a part of Nash FM 94.7’s Birthday Bash, Scott kicked off his ‘Nothing To Do Town Tour’ at Gramercy Theatre in midtown Manhattan.  The venue was packed earlier for opener Seth Ennis who also just happened to play on the Today Show for the very first time. Check out a recap of that performance here. 

In addition to singing his very single “Woke Up In Nashville” and his current single “Call Your Mama”, Ennis wowed the crowd with a medley of pop-rock cover songs including The Killers “Mr. Brightside”, Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar We’re Going Down” and Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue”.  As one of our 2017 Artists to Watch, Ennis was the perfect opeing act, warming up the sold-out venue.

Gramercy Theatre was filled wall to wall when Dylan Scott stepped on stage, kicking things off with his most recent hit “Hooked” which was the 7th most played country song of 2018.  Fans sang along to the uptempo hit as the Lousiana native ran around the stage exuding his immense passion for performing.  Showing no signs of slowing down, Scott went right into “Lay It On Me” and then his current single which just hit radio this past Monday, “Nothing To Do Town”.

He continued the night filled with high energy and played songs spanning his career in country music including the very first song that got things started for him “Crazy Over Me” which he explained to the audience he wrote for his wife who was his high school sweetheart. He also let New York City fans in on a sneak peek of what is to come from his next project, an EP due out April 26th.  “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve written in the past six years,” Scott tells the crowd before playing “Nobody” which will be on the Nothing To Do Town EP. 

He slowed things down a bit by sitting at the piano, asking the crowd if anyone here liked The Eagles, hilariously enough, the crowd starting booing, thinking Scott meant the National Football Team when he really meant the band. He then did a solo performance of “Desperado” and you could truly hear a pin drop, most likely introducing the beautiful song to his younger fanbase. He started a venue-wide sing along to Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s “Fishing In The Dark” and played “Ball Cap”, “My Girl” and “Beer Buddies” from his 2017 self-titled album.

For the first night of the Nothing To Do Town Tour, New York City fans gave the singer quite the kick-off. Scott continues his tour throughout the end of February.  Be sure to check out our coverage in a few weeks when Dylan Scott performs in Nashville at Country Radio Seminar’s ‘New Faces Showcase’.

[Listen] Dylan Scott Drops New Track “Nothing to Do Town”

Rising country recording artist, Dylan Scott continues to impress fans with his catchy and heartfelt songs. After a string of top five hits including, “My Girl” and “Hooked,” the singer dropped another jam, today, “Nothing to Do Town,” with a lyric video to go with it.

The singer-songwriter has been teasing the track via his Instagram for the last week, eagerly awaiting its debut. “Nothing to Do Town” is a story about a small-town, which doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of big cities, but the people from there still know how to have fun with what they do have. Scott looked to his Louisiana roots for inspiration, as he grew up in the small town of Bastrop, sharing in a recent press release “I’m really excited about the release of my new single, “Nothing to Do Town.” Growing up in a very small town in Northeast Louisiana we had to create our own entertainment since we didn’t have malls or movie theaters. That is what this song is all about and I wouldn’t trade the way I grew up for anything. I know there are going to be a lot of people who hear the song and feel the same was I do.”

The opening lyrics of the song set the tone right away. “It ain’t New York City / and it ain’t LA / We ain’t got no rooftop bars like they do on Broadway / It’s just a little town square / Middle of nowhere / Ain’t even big enough to be a map dot / We ain’t got a lot / But we sure do a lot / With the little bit that we got.”

 The party anthem name-drops country stars, George Strait and Tim McGraw, talks about looking to the outdoors for things to do, and overall, relishes in finding the joys of living the uncomplicated life in a small town. The lyric video showcases all the fun things to do in a small town, which is a refreshing and inviting change for people, who may have grown up in the hustle and bustle of a big city like New York.  “Nothing to Do Town” is available anywhere music can be bought or stream, and is already making some waves on country radio.

The entertainer will give back to his home-state by headlining the ‘Bayou Stock Country’ music festival. Scott created the festival to give back to the community, with proceeds going towards holiday gifts for local kids in need. Click here for more information about the event.

In January 2019, Scott, accompanied by Seth Ennis, who he co-wrote “Hooked” with, will embark on a headlining tour, named after the track. The ‘Nothing to Do Town Tour’ begins in New York City at Gramercy Theatre on January 17th. Find tickets for the show here and head to for a full list of tour dates.
