REVIEW WEDNESDAY - Concert Review

The Scott Taylor Band


Over the past few months I've been asked to include concert reviews on the blog. Since I’m able to attend more shows I thought this a good suggestion. If there’s anything you would like to see on the blog, please email me or leave a comment and I’ll give serious consideration.

Since this has become ‘The Scott Taylor Band’ week in Kelly’s Country, I thought I would review the concert I attended during Fiddler’s Frolics in Halletsville TX. I’ve known of the group for over a year, promoting their gigs on The Party List, twitter and FB. But this was the first opportunity I had to see what this talented group is capable of. Mike Parker (harmonica) and I have been mutual followers on twitter so I was not surprised when Mike walked up prior to set-up and said hello. When someone other than the lead singer for a group can set the tone for a show, you know good things are on the horizon. I was not disappointed.

From the moment The Scott Taylor Band took the stage until the final note, the classic country/ honky tonk style music flowed like a tapped keg. Dancers of all ages filled the large dance floor of the KC Hall. At one point Scott’s dad, Mike Taylor, joined the group on stage. His presence and his voice reinforcing the purity of what this band is all about.

All of the band members have an opportunity to show off their individual talents at various points throughout the show. Wade Stockton (Texas State Fiddle Hall of Fame member)/ fiddle, Mike Parker/ harmonica, David Stockton/ bass guitar, Billy Jo High/ lead guitar, Steve Carson/ lead guitar and Sammy Zamora/ drums.

And just when you think you've got this band figured out, don’t be surprised if you hear a little “Highway to Hell” interspersed with the classic country. Why? Because this group recognizes their audience covers a wide range of listeners and while they are still ‘country’, there’s a little bit of rock in more than a few of their fans – and it gives the tried and true country folk that ‘pause for the cause’ opportunity.

Aside from being a band to dance to, The Scott Taylor Band handles the concert stage like the professionals they are. They have opened for Tracy Lawrence, Shenandoah, Robert Earl Keen, SheDaisy, Big & Rich, Jason Boland & Jack Ingram to name a few.

Regardless of the venue, you will not be disappointed. So check their tour schedule, pay your door fee and be prepared to have a great time!

TURNTABLE TUESDAY - Beautiful Sin


In today’s market there seems to be a lack of solid country music. The 'hold that special someone close, glide across the dance floor' kind of country. Songs that tell stories. If this is the type of country music you remember, you hunger for, then this album deserves extra helpings.


BEAUTIFUL SIN is the second album by The Scott Taylor Band and winner of Album of the Year at the 2014 Texas Music Awards. The CD serves up eleven tunes by some of the best songwriters who know what a country song is suppose to convey. Ruby And Red Wine sets the tone and is one of six bearing Chad Hudson’s signature songwriting style on this album, including the title song. A myriad of other talented songwriters lent their lyrics to create a first-rate line of tracks flowing seamlessly from one to the other. And while well-written, Scott Taylor's voice (along with the talented musicians who help make up the band) brings the images and emotions to life.

The cover of the classic Willie Nelson tune, Funny How Time Slips Away, stands out on this album. Scott shares the vocals with his dad, Mike Taylor. The song also garnered the guys a Texas Music Award in March of this year for Best Cover.

As with any good show, BEAUTIFUL SIN closes out with an up-beat, ‘see ya down the road’ number. If you’ve been despairing lately of the fate of country music, Chug (written by Jarrod Birmingham) leaves you with certainty this old-fashioned country tune, like the ten other tracks leading up to this one, is a sign of things to come.

I give BEAUTIFUL SIN

OUT OF THE CHUTE - The Scott Taylor Band


One of the many highlights of my trip to Texas earlier this month was meeting today’s Out of the Chute guest, Scott Taylor. Scott is the founding member of lead singer for the classic country group from Victoria Texas – The Scott Taylor Band.
 
Let’s open the chute!



1. Your cover of the classic Willie Nelson tune, Funny How Time Slips Away, won Cover of the Year at the Texas Music Awards. You recorded this song with your dad, Mike. How did you choose this song?
I had been going through song lists for awhile for the Beautiful Sin album. While driving home from work one night ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’ came on the radio and I knew instantly that was the cover I wanted to do… and I had to do it with my dad.

2. A lot of artists won’t cover tunes by other artists. They are not a ‘cover’ band. While other artists include at least one on every album they produce. Are you afraid of being dubbed a ‘cover band’?
Not at all! We will continue to do covers. Those are what people come to hear. Those tunes are the foundation of this business. Doing them is a tribute to the artists I admire.

3. Are you a Texas artist or a Texas artist with an eye on Nashville?
I am a Texas artist. I’ve heard enough of the horror stories of how those folks want to mold you to suit what they think you should be. I am country and will always be country. I want to do this my way. The fans who started with me are the core of what we do. To change that might gain me one fan here and there but I risk losing that core. It isn’t worth it. The band bears my name for a reason – The Scott Taylor Band – and those fans deserve nothing less.

4. How did The Scott Taylor Band come to be?
A bunch of us experienced a lay off from our job. A buddy and I were pickin’ one night and I thought ‘hey, we could get a band together – at least make beer money.’ So we got a small group together and were pickin’ at a local little spot and I FELT the time was right. So I started hand-selecting others on the lay-off train and it’s worked out great!

5. Beautiful Sin is a great album. What can we expect next?
I would like to release a new single but the cash flow isn’t there right now. For now we just keep doing what we love – entertaining our fans.

6. You work hard, you’re a husband and a father. What do you do to relax? 
Right now the gigs are mostly weekends, so it’s not a tough task. But I love to golf.

7. What do you want folks to know about The Scott Taylor Band?
We are country. We will always be a country band performing great songs that paved the way for the rest of us.

A note from Kelly:

I have to admit I do not have an 8th question from Scott. Our interview became more of a visit between two people with a common viewpoint with the potential for a working relationship. A couple of questions overlapped into one solid answer – thus putting me a question short.  Although this should have been an 8 question ride, having only 7 by no means made the ride lacking.

What I can tell you, is here is a young man with a classic soul. He knows who he wants to be, the music he wants to be known for and the people he believes understand the concept behind The Scott Taylor Band.

Make the time to go hear this group. If you like classic country with a bit of  the occasional ‘rock’ classic thrown in, you will be a fan in a drum beat.

Tomorrow, I'll be posting a review of Beautiful Sin. Then on Wednesday, get up close and personal with their show in my Concert Review! I hope you'll come on back!

Country Blessings!

THE PARTY LIST - May 8 - 14th

Note: Please remember to check with the venue as to whether or not there is a cover charge or ticket required for the shows you plan to attend. I have provided links to the venues when possible, making it easy for you to check it out.

Not all events take place in Texas. With that in mind I will begin listing them not only by day but by TEXAS and ON THE ROAD. With that in mind…
