NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 10, 2017) – Critically-acclaimed singer songwriter Ray Scott will release his sixth studio disc, Guitar For Sale, on June 9, 2017, with distribution through The Holland Group / Sony/RED. The North Carolina native premiered the set’s first single, “Livin’ This Way” in March during an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry.
“When I went into the studio with my friend, and new producer, Michael Hughes, my goal was to do something a little different, something live tracked that’s not so polished, maybe even rough in spots, with the hope we’d come out with a product that had elements reminiscent of the way music first hit my ears when I was a young’un,” said Scott. “It wasn’t my intent to worry about what the rest of Nashville was doing… 'course it never has been. I’m proud to say I think we accomplished that. My first single, ‘Livin’ This Way’ is based on a classic country music theme - pain. In keeping with my habit of honesty in songwriting, I thought it was a good way introduce this new project.”
Scott has already begun the promotional process for Guitar For Sale. He will appear on Nashville Today, the popular midday show on Music City’s NBC affiliate, WSMV, on April 20. He will also be featured on such popular websites as Rolling Stone Country, CMChatLive.com, and CountryRebel.com. The performer will also be very active during the upcoming CMA Music Festival, with performances at Storme Warren’s Nashville Navy Party on June 7, his own fan club / CD release party on June 9.
