This is the weekend that Dylan Scott has been waiting for – his hometown Bayou Stock concert is this Saturday, October 23rd in Sterlington, Louisiana!
Dylan shares that he started Bayou Stock to bring the concert experience he lives out on the road, back to his hometown, “So, I’m from Louisiana, down in the bayou…it’s just a cool deal. We started it three years ago, this will be our 3rd year. I take the stage, I take the lights, I take the big audio, and the production, and I take it back to my hometown. I just want to give back, I want the people that I grew up with, my family, my friends, the familiar faces I saw in Walmart growing up…I want to give them what we get to do around the country every single night.”
While this is a chance for to Dylan to share his music, it’s also an opportunity to do some good as well, “The first year we did Bayou Stock, we bought Christmas gifts for 80 kids. 80 kids around my hometown, and man, just to see their faces, light up when they came in and got their…literally, their Christmas wish list, was the coolest thing in the world. So, the kids, they’ve got a soft spot in my heart so anything that I can do to help kids, I’m all for it.”
This year, Dylan is hoping to give kids an experience that they will remember forever, “We’re going to donate over to the Dream Hunt Foundation…which is basically a Foundation that takes kids who are terminally ill, or wheel chair bound, on a Dream Hunt…you know, go hunting. I’m a big outdoorsman, the kids are special to me, hunting is special to me…so, the two of those together is pretty awesome.”
One of the advantages of this being his concert, Dylan gets to pick who he invites to perform, “We’ve been lucky to have some awesome talent at Bayou Stock. I mean, last year, I had Neal McCoy – who I’m a huge fan of. My buddy Chris Lane came and did it last year as well.”
For Bayou Stock 2021, Dylan got to invite a singer who has made a big impact on him, Dylan shares, “This year David Lee Murphy‘s coming…to this day, every night I sing ‘Dust On The Bottle’…like, I sing it every night! I’m a huge fan. I’ve never met David Lee, so it’s really cool that he’s coming to my hometown to play my little show that I do every year…and I get to meet him, and I get to be a fan and watch his show, so, I’m gonna be like a little kid…I’m not gonna lie.”
For fans that can’t make Bayou Stock this weekend – you have a chance to see Dylan Scott in concert next year when he launches his Livin’ My Best Life tour in February of 2022.
Dylan says “Excited to finally headline in front of my fans and hopefully a lot of new ones we’ve gained over the past few months while being on tour with Luke Bryan.”
No matter where he’s on stage now-a-days fans are going to get to hear Dylan Scott’s latest single at country radio – “New Truck.”
