Long Ride Home


For decades Darrell Scott’s father, recently deceased, played roadhouse bars, singing country hits while squirreling away his own material. That explains Darrell’s fondness for classic country and fascination with the musician’s lifestyle, both of which are celebrated on this disc—a literally down-home collection he cut in his house with a team of Nashville aces. Scott is a respected Music City songwriter, and while his tunes have been covered by some of today’s biggest acts, these 16 tracks are no glossy pop crossovers. Not that he’s a stick-in-the-mud purist, either. There’s looseness and warmth in these recordings, and as he sings about loving, drinking, working and fishing, all are welcome to raise a Mason jar and party on his front porch.
