Country rockers, Scooter Brown Band, hold nothing back on their newest song “Country At All.” Brown and fellow artist and friend Tim Montana co-wrote the song while questioning their place in country music - a genre that has largely removed the traditional sounds of country music's history and replaced it with snap tracks and pop licks. From the opening steel guitar lick, from the iconic Steve Hinson, the honest lyrics lend themselves to the traditional outlaw country feel, bringing traditional country fans back to the music they grew up on. The song is already in rotation on SiriusXM's Outlaw Country where it's seen positive early reaction from fans.
“I love country music, especially traditional and would love to see a bigger place at the table for it on country radio,” says Scooter Brown.
"Nothing like hearing one of today's top country artists stealing a melody from a Real Artist like Merle Haggard. I wish fans would stop supporting thief's like these..." Strictly Country Magazine.
Well, I found the city where my heroes once roamed,
I guess all the cowboys eased on back home.
I'm proud to be baptized on three chords and the truth,
but all I hear lately is one chord and a loop.
Last year, Scooter Brown Band released multiple singles including “Leave It To A Woman” and “Something Waylon Would Sing,” showing a different side of the band than the music fans are used to. Both singles were supported by Apple Music and Spotify along with “Something Waylon Would Sing” being among the most played songs on SiriusXM Outlaw Country. All have performed well with fans, contributing to the band's three million plus streams across digital platforms.
Throughout this unprecedented year, Brown has gotten creative in his endeavors by partnering with Merica Bourbon for a Signature Series bottle, along with becoming innovative in finding shows to play. As touring starts back up again, Scooter Brown Band looks forward to getting back out on the road later this year and will be announcing shows across the country in the coming weeks.
About Scooter Brown Band
After four years and three months, two tours overseas with one tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scooter Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. Scooter Brown Band was formed and began playing mainly in and around Houston, Texas. They have toured North America and opened for some of their biggest influences including Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam, Lee Roy Parnell and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few. With two of the members having served in the military, they dedicate significant time doing work for Veteran Support Organizations like Base Camp 40 - Warriors in the Wild, Lone Survivor Foundation and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation. For the last few years the band has been building a new era in their career. Releasing American Son in late 2017 solidified the band’s unique blend of country and rock with various other influences and was lauded by Rolling Stone. Spotify supported the title track on multiple playlists and continues to show support as new music was released throughout 2020. “Leave It To A Woman” showed a different side of the band with a more traditional country sound, which was then followed up with “Something Waylon Would Sing.” The latter was picked up by SiriusXM Outlaw Country and is continuously among the top songs played. In 2020, Brown teamed up with Veteran owned Merica Bourbon for a special Scooter Brown Merica Bourbon Signature Series. The band has been tirelessly working on new music, gearing up to release a slew of new songs in the coming year. For more information, please visit scooterbrownband.com.
