My dad showed me an alleyway where he had to sleep in his truck one night. He introduced me to the guy who became my manager and still is. It was really fascinating and intimidating at the same time.”
Just before turning 19, Scott accepted a contract from Curb Records and began recording. From the start, his most important mentor was and continues to be Jim Ed Norman, the distinguished producer, record label executive and current Chief Creative Advisor for Curb. “You name it, Jim Ed has done it,” Scott insists. “When you’re making records, it’s about creativity and how you feel and how much fun you’re having. And along with his background, he brings a lot of fun to it because he loves making records, and I love making records with him.”
As they worked on various studio projects, Scott returned to his initial passion for performance. He put together an unusual “band of brothers,” consisting of his brother Logan on lead guitar and two other siblings, Garrett and Darrick Cline, on bass and drums, respectively. The communication they share is at least as important as their rock-solid musicianship. In fact, Scott invited Garrett to join the group before he’d heard him play or even met him in person.
