#1 hitmaking Curb Records star DYLAN SCOTT has made a list – and checked it twice – and decided that this Christmas, his incredible fans deserve an early gift. Scott’s first holiday EP, MERRY CHRISTMAS, will arrive on October 13.
Featuring brand new renditions of five traditional Christmas songs, the EP is a classic throwback brought to life by Scott’s warm and expressive baritone vocal. And with a track list that includes “Winter Wonderland,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas,” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” the singer-songwriter says MERRY CHRISTMAS is filled with his own happy memories.
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and I am really excited about the release of my first Christmas EP,” shared Scott. “I grew up listening to the holiday classics and to be able to record and perform some of these songs is a dream come true.”
MERRY CHRISTMAS arrives just as Scott is riding an avalanche of breakthrough success. This summer he celebrated his first-ever #1 hit, as the intensely romantic “My Girl” rose to the top of the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay charts. Co-written with Josh Kerr about Scott’s wife, Blair, the standout track has now surpassed the one million combined sales and streams mark, with a RIAA PLATINUM certification on the horizon.
Likewise, his self-titled album debut landed inside the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart, and he followed up with the release of an expanded DYLAN SCOTT DELUXE EDITION in August. Scott’s current single, the sharp and sexy anthem “Hooked,” looks to build on those achievements. Already surpassing seven million Spotify streams, it is now making its way up Country radio playlists.
Meanwhile, the MERRY CHRISTMAS EP coincides with yet another big step in Scott’s career. After spending the summer headlining his MY TOWN TOUR – which included a milestone sellout of Los Angeles’ world-famous Troubadour – Scott will join Justin Moore’s HELL ON A HIGHWAY TOUR as the featured supporting artist.
Kicking off on October 13 – the same day MERRY CHRISTMAS comes out – the marathon run begins in Monroe, LA, just 30 miles from the heartthrob’s hometown in Bastrop, LA, and will continue with coast-to-coast dates scheduled all the way through May of 2018.
