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 dylanscottcountry.com for a full list of tour dates.
