Up-and-coming Nashville artist Dylan Scott rocked the Texas Club this past Saturday evening, marking the second concert of the year in Baton Rouge for the Bastrop, LA, native.
Fans lined up in the parking lot and down the sidewalk as they waited for the doors to open at 8 p.m. Scott kicked off his performance at 10:30 p.m., using the extra time before hitting the stage to treat fans to a special meet and greet outside the club near his tour bus.
“I adore Dylan Scott,” said Elizabeth Anne, who describes herself as fan for the past three years. “He is always so friendly and outgoing. You can tell that he cares about his fans. He is willing to take the time out of his day to sign items and take pictures. He is very approachable, and I respect him for that.”
Scott’s set list included covers and several original songs. He sang his debut single “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy,” along with his newest hit, “Crazy Over Me.” Showing off his roots, Scott covered songs by Tim McGraw and George Strait. He even found time to show off his range by rapping T-Pain’s “Buy You a Drink.”
Friends Mallory Hernandez and Briauna Reichert were impressed by the show.
“I only knew one of his songs before tonight,” stated Hernandez. “I saw the advertisement for the concert and figured it would be a great way to just relax and enjoy my weekend. The night was more fun than what I anticipated.”
As Scott performed, many fans danced and sang along. Scott grabbed front row audience’s cell phones and took plenty of pictures of the crowd and even some selfies. One girl was even brought up on stage and sat down on a stool. Scott circled around her singing and seductively dancing to the song “Let’s Get It On.”
“I honestly had never heard his name before when Mallory suggested we go to the concert,” Reichert said. “I can see why people like him so much. Not only is he a rising artist, but a great performer. He brings a lot of energy to the stage and does his best to interact with the crowd. It’s easy to tell he loves singing and performing for his fans.”
The hard-working Scott took even more time out of his schedule post concert to do a second meet and greet, giving him a chance to talk about the concert with his fans while taking more photos and signing autographs.
Local country radio station 101.5 FM WYNK was on hand to take pictures, and fans can check out the photo gallery on its website, www.wynkcountry.com.
