NASHVILLE, TENN. (September 10, 2018) — Curb Records chart-topping Country star Dylan Scott is giving back to his hometown community in a big way on November 17, hosting and headlining his inaugural BAYOU STOCK fundraising music festival in Sterlington, Louisiana. The breakout artist took to social media to share the news with his fans first here.
A native of nearby Bastrop, Louisiana, the “My Girl” and “Hooked” hit-maker will lead an exciting lineup of artists including Morgan Evans, Lainey Wilson and local artist Barrett Pepper, with proceeds helping to provide Christmas gifts for local kids in need. Starting at 3 p.m. (CT), the full-day of all-ages fun will feature music, food trucks, tailgating and more at the brand new Sterlington Sports Complex, as BAYOU STOCK marks one of the largest Country festivals to hit Northeast Louisiana in over 10 years.
“To say that I’m excited to put together and host the first annual Bayou Stock music festival in Sterlington, Louisiana, would be a HUGE understatement,” shares Scott. “For many years, Tim McGraw hosted Swampstock in nearby Rayville, Louisiana, with the sole purpose of giving back to the community, and it was a monumental success. I have given a lot of thought as to how I could give back once I had the ability. With proceeds benefiting children in need in Northeast Louisiana during the holiday season, I decided Bayou Stock would be a great way to do it. I am really pumped over this opportunity and look forward to recreating and maintaining the wonderful tradition that Tim started back in 1994.”
Tickets to the inaugural BAYOU STOCK go on sale Wednesday, September 12, and can be purchased at the event’s official website https://bayoustock.com.
The news arrives just as Scott is garnering another blast of national media attention, as the rising talent will appear on nationally-syndicated morning talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan on October 1. He’ll be on hand to perform his latest chart-rising hit, “Hooked,” which is now at #4 and climbing at Country radio.
The addictive anthem to love-at-first-sight appears on the expanded version of Scott’s Top 5 album debut, DYLAN SCOTT DELUXE EDITION, and follows in the footsteps of his first #1 smash – the PLATINUM-certified story of true romance, “My Girl,” which topped the charts in 2017 and became the #7 most-played song of the year.
