Darrell Scott Announces Tour Behind ‘Long Ride Home’

Darrell Scott announces a tour in support of his latest studio album, Long Ride Home, to be released on January 31, 2012.

Long Ride Home features Scott’s songwriting as a vehicle to revisit and pay tribute to the music of his youth.  Scott says he was “baptized into country music” throughout his youth, and many songs on the album are nearly as old as those memories of his youth, two from as far back as when he was 16 (co-writes with his father, Wayne Scott).

Darrell Scott has, over the past decade-plus, assumed a rarified place in American music. His literary but accessible songwriting has been the foundation of his reputation. His singing is uncommonly strong and nuanced. And his chops on guitar and steel, practiced over a lifetime of blue-collar musicianship, have earned him elite sideman gigs like Robert Plant’s current Band of Joy. With three Grammy nominations and an Americana Music Award to his credit, Scott has more than proven his stature as one of the finest all-around musicians in the world.  Now on Long Ride Home, the country music that shaped his musical character and that has informed his prior work in ways explicit and subtle, finally blasts to the surface.
