Dylan Scott has plenty going on for a guy from a "Nothing to Do Town."



The country singer from Bastrop in rural northeast Louisiana has notched a Top 5 debut album -- a self-titled effort in 2016 -- and the hits "My Girl" and "Hooked." He's currently climbing the charts again with "Nothing to Do Town," with more material in motion for an EP in April and an eventual sophomore album...



Scott, 28, still views himself as "a newcomer" in country music. "Obviously I'm still up and coming. But there's a different level of respect that I feel I've gotten over the past eight months, I would say, that feels really cool. People are noticing my music -- not only fans but other artists and other people in the industry. That's a cool feeling, knowing I've been in (Nashville) since I was 19, almost 10 years, and finally some stuff is happening."



"Nothing to Do Town," according to Scott, is "basically about where I grow up. If you drove through my (home) town you'd ask yourself, 'What do people do here? There's nothing going on.' But, y'know, we go hunting and fishing, riding four-wheelers, hanging out with buddies, bonfires -- every Bro Country song you've heard is the way we grew up. There's a lot to do in nothing to do towns."



Scott is looking forward to releasing his next EP, his fourth and the follow-up to last year's "Stripped," and intends to follow it with another album during the fall. "I've got some songs I'm really, really excited about, so I wanted to put 'em out now. We're on the bus writing every weekend; I'm on the bus now looking at three guitars and a computer and a piano. We get to bring writers on the road and work on songs, which is really sweet. It keeps the music flowing."



Dylan Scott and Seth Ennis perform Thursday, Jan. 31, at Saint Andrews Hall, 431 E. Congress St., Detroit. Doors at 7 p.m. Sold out. 313-961-6358 or saintandrewsdetroit.com.
