NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country rocker Scott Stevens is releasing a modern take on the 1995 John Michael Montgomery smash “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” today on all platforms. Listen to the song and pre-save the album HERE. “Sold” is one of 16 tracks featured on Every Hat Is a Cowboy Hat…, Stevens’ debut album for Verge Records, due out May 13. Stevens will also release “Missin’ You”—a moving tribute to his grandfather—to radio next month.
This album is the culmination of years of effort for Stevens. The East Tennessee native has long found himself walking two very different paths, making the decision more than a decade ago to attend law school while also envisioning a career in the music business.
“Though I’m blessed to suit up and do my thing as a civil rights attorney, my dream has always been to support my family with my music,” Stevens says.
Each of the 16 tracks on Every Hat Is a Cowboy Hat… reveals a little more of Stevens’ multifaceted artistry. From the quirky, up-tempo “New Boots,” the sultry “Neon on Ya,” and the catchy “I Feel Good” to the poignant “Missin’ You” and sweetly romantic “Come Home to Me,” Stevens confidently explores country, southern rock, rap and R&B to develop his signature style.
After graduating from the University of Alabama School of Law, Stevens hit a turning point: “I remember starting a job right after graduation and thinking that it was just the most boring thing ever,” he muses. “I looked at the girl I was dating (who is now my wife, Katie), and I said, ‘Look, I don't want to lose you. But I’ve got to go to Nashville.’” Seven years of marriage and three kids later, Stevens finds himself successfully multitasking while balancing two careers and a family of five.
