Read the complete interview with Country Artist Abbi Scott below.
Why country music ?
~ Country music has been in my blood since I was a very little girl. My mom always had 90’s country playing – whether it be in the car or when we were at home. I’ve just always felt a connection with the genre.
If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Well, honestly, one of my favorite artists of all time is Tom Petty! I would’ve loved to see Tom Petty and Maren Morris perform a duet together. I think both of their voices would mesh incredibly well together!
Describe your ultimate evening at home.
~ My ultimate evening at home would involve some old records spinning on my Vinyl player, cuddling with my rescue pup on the couch, strumming my guitar and sipping on a glass of wine or whiskey!
Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ I would just absolutely love for Shane McAnally or Brandy Clark to write a song for me! I’m a huge fan of every song they’ve both written!
What is the one thing that readers/fans would be surprised to know about you?
~ I think readers/fans would be surprised to know that I’m a jack of all trades. With this being said, I’m not only an artist & songwriter, but I’ve actually been to college and received my Bachelors degree in Journalism & Broadcasting…and I’m a licensed and practicing Esthetician!
Give us one country song you never want to hear on radio anymore and tell us why.
~ This is a hard question. I couldn’t pick out one individual song, but I will say I would personally like to hear less male voices on country radio and give us females more of a voice and platform for our songs to be heard.
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and…you wish they would?
~ I’ve always wanted to be asked, “If there is one thing you want people to remember about you once your time here on Earth has passed, what would it be?” With the answer being, “I want people to know, that I was kind to everyone, whomever came in and out of my life and that I treated others how I’ve always wanted to be treated – that I really tried to make this world a better place for generations to come.”
What would be your favorite profession when you could not be a singer.
~ It would be what I’m pursuing on the side already, as well – in the aesthetics industry helping individuals feel beautiful in their own skin and providing them the knowledge of a healthy skincare routine.
Johnny or June ?
~ Johnny because I believe the song “Folsom Prison Blues” truly changes country music and made people bigger fans of the genre.
Can you tell us some more about your dog (we saw many cute pictures on your Twitter account) and what she means to you.
~ My tiny, little, bundle of pure joy, Teensie Scott, is truly not only my rescue pup but my best friend. She makes my worst of days better and brings me so much happiness! She is so funny and smart, she loves to go to the beach and go on walks! She means absolutely everything to me. I couldn’t imagine doing this crazy life without her.
What was the most memorable day in your musical career and tell us why.
~ This may not seem like much to others, but to me it meant the world. My most memorable day in the music industry was actually volunteering several days in my tiny town back home in Indiana at an underprivileged youth center, where I was a mentor and sang to the children. These kids thought that I was just as famous as Carrie Underwood and it truly holds such a special place in my heart ‘til this day. I love giving back in places where I know it’s needed most and performing at this youth center will always be special in my heart.
