Our new one this week is Darrell Scott’s Long Ride Home. Honestly I’m not too familiar with Darrell Scott, so I decided to hunt down some info on him when I found out this album was coming out today. What I found out is that I AM familiar with him, or his songs rather…He’s written songs for Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride and Brad Paisley to name a few.
I also found this article on Folk Alley to be a rather haunting review of sorts for Long Ride Home.
After taking a listen to the album, I can definitely see how he has a relaxing tone to his voice such as Willie Nelson has. You should definitely check out Someday, Every Road Leads Back to You, and Still Got a Ways to Go from this album.
If you are interested in some great songwriting and great songs, go check this one out.
