Singer Marlee Scott rides the radio to success


Radio has been a train wreck for country artist Marlee Scott – wait, that’s not quite right. Marlee Scott is telling radio stations about “Train Wreck,” her new single due to hit radio first and then iTunes the day after later this month.

Here’s what Scott has to say about the song, which was written by others (Marcus Hummon, Jedd Hughes and Sarah Buxton). “’Train Wreck’ grabbed me right out of the gate the first time I heard it. The Country/Rock groove and Bluegrass down-home Country chorus had me dancing around my condo! It brings such a fun tongue-in-cheek outlook on what it’s like to fall for the wrong person, but you just can’t seem to get enough. I love making people smile and chuckle and want to sing along, and ‘Train Wreck’ seems to do it every time.”

Who has she been telling? Pretty much any radio station that will listen. According to a release from Scott’s team, “Scott is currently visiting radio stations on a nationwide radio tour in support of ‘Train Wreck.’ In 2011, she visited more than 100 stations in the U.S. and Canada.”

Big Ride Records is the distributor. “Train Wreck” is the second single from Scott’s upcoming album, and will be available to radio 1/23/12 and on iTunes 1/24/12.

RBR-TVBR observation: Another day, another piece of evidence that suggests the age old symbiotic relationship between radio and music is alive and well.
