Darrell Scott’s Live In N.C. (August 2, Full Light)

Darrell Scott is a Nashville Legend (capitalization intended) and a country song writing juggernaut. He’s penned hits for The Dixie Chicks, Sara Evans, Garth Brooks and Travis Tritt (and many many others). But while the above list may not be the cream of the crop in our eyes; I imagine writing that many hits pays the bills quite nicely, thank you very much.

I actually prefer Darrell’s playing (he’s an in demand multi-instrumentalist) and his gruff singing over the slick sounds of the acts listed above and I’m guessing you will too. He’ll never break into the charts on his own and I’m guessing that’s ok with him but his recorded legacy will be substantial when all is said and done. His newest record set with an August 2nd release date is Live In N.C. Click here to purchase from the artist’s page.

    I’ve never heard of Darrell before, but from what I’ve heard here, wow! I love the chord structure and melody of “You’ll Never Leave Harland Alive,” but then again, I’m always a sucker for a minor key. But the way starts changing the chords towards the end is very, very nice. Oh, and the man can play guitar too. Thanks! This is one the reasons Songs:Illinois is my favorite MP3 blog.
