Morehouse Parish native and Curb Records recording artist Dylan Scott’s inaugural Bayou Stock, held November 17 at the Sterlington Sports Complex, drew record crowds of fans of not only Scott’s but also Barrett Pepper, Ouachita Parish native Lainey Wilson, Morgan Evans, Stephen Paul and Mark Chestnut.

Scott wanted to find a way to help those in need in the area in which he grew up, and Bayou Stock was born to help provide Christmas gifts for local children in need.

“There’s a lot of kids in this area that their families are just a little less fortunate and can’t provide Christmas for them,” Scott said. “So, hopefully, we can raise a bunch of money and help that cause.”

Scott has a new single, “Nothing to do Town”, in which the video will be shot in the surrounding area. He also will be going out on a headlining tour in January. He recently released a holiday EP, Merry Christmas, featuring his very own renditions of classics such as “Winter Wonderland”, “Jingle Bell Rock”, the “Christmas Song”, “White Christmas” and “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

Scott’s hits “My Girl” and “Hooked”, among others, have been streamed by fans over 450 million times. “My Girl” ranked as 2017’s Country Radio’s seventh most played song and “Hooked”, which he preformed on NBS’s Today and Live with Kelly and Ryan, made him the second most played new country artist of the year.
