Dylan Scott Releases Keith Whitley Tribute EP Today
Dylan Scott honors his late musical idol Keith Whitley with today's (Friday, August 16th) release of a new EP called An Old Memory. The seven-track project was recorded in the legendary Sound Emporium Studio in Nashville, TN, the same studio where Whitley recorded many of these songs.
Scott tells us what drew him to Whitley's sound: "In the beginning, when I was a small kid, it was the tone of his voice. That's what got me first, but as I grew older it was his melodies and as I got older and started to write, it was his lyrics. He was just the whole package, but in the beginning, it was just his voice and the tone of it. Just how smooth his voice was… even as a kid I could tell he was such a great singer."
Jesse Keith Whitley, the son of Whitley, lends his vocals to "I'm Over You," while Lorrie Morgan, Whitley's wife at the time of his passing, joins Scott on the duet, "Tell Lorrie I Love Her," which was one of the last songs he worked on prior to his death in 1989.
