Country Music People Magazine's Honky Tonker of the Month.
ENGLAND, UK – Scott Southworth is Country Music People Magazine's Honky Tonker of the Month for July. Awarding five stars to Southworth's upcoming album, "These Old Bones," pre-release reviewer Duncan Warwick says, "this is his best work yet."
"He can honky tonk with the best of them," says Warwick. "He can write a pretty ballad or an outlaw charger, and he can do so with humor, but it's always real, and it's always country."
"These Old Bones" is Scott's first new release on the Flaming Tortuga label, and it's scheduled to drop July 20. Pre-orders on Apple Music get an instant download of Scott's new single, "Brown Liquor."
Scott Southworth's "These Old Bones" pre-order 6/2/20 includes new single.
NASHVILLE – Scott Southworth's "These Old Bones" begins iTunes/Apple Music pre-order Tuesday 6/2/20 and will include an advance download of the first single, "Brown Liquor." This is the first release for upstart, unheard-of, slightly obnoxious new record label, Flaming Tortuga Records.
"This song is several years old, a co-write with my pals Heino Moeller and Jeffery Hudson," Scott says. "It seems wherever I play, people want to know what CD Brown Liquor is on, so I finally took the hint."
Evoking the light-hearted spirit of classic Roger Miller, Southworth weaves his familiar vocals through this boisterous, unabashed love letter for the sweet nectar that comes from the Bourbon and Whiskey Trails of Kentucky and Tennessee.
Thanks to the popularity of this song on the road, Scott was commissioned a bonafide Kentucky Colonel back in 2015.
Flaming Tortuga Records launches new label with hillbilly singer.
NASHVILLE – Upstart, unheard-of, borderline-obnoxious Indie co-op record label, Flaming Tortuga Records (FTR), is making its presence in Nashville known with obscurity...err...authority by announcing its first signed artist, hillbilly singer Scott Southworth.
"When we sat down with Scott and listened to his new project, we knew he was a perfect fit for our vision," says Terrence Pine, President of FTR. "We are committed to bringing new, authentic, traditional country music to the world. We believe there is a silent majority out there, hungry for cryin' cheatin', drinkin', two-steppin', honky tonk music, and we will find them, one at a time."
"Southworth is just one of the many wonderful indie artists across the US writing, recording, and performing this unique style of music," Pine said. "Now he has a home here with Flaming Tortuga Records."
Scott says, "It's been a ton of fun to work with the FTR team on this project. Happy to have found a group committed to the music I love to make."
Look for Scott's new CD "These Old Bones" to drop on 7/20/20.
