Darrell Scott became one of the more successful country songwriters of the late ’90s and early 2000s, placing songs with the biggest names in country music, including several major chart hits. Garth Brooks, the Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and many others recorded his work. At the same time, he worked consistently as a studio musician and released a series of his own solo albums.
The son of musician Wayne Scott, James Darrell Scott was born August 6, 1959, on a tobacco farm in London, KY, and moved as a child to East Gary, IN. He was playing professionally by his teens in Southern California, later living in Toronto and Boston. He attended Tufts University, where he studied poetry and literature. Finally, he relocated to Nashville to get into the country music business.
Scott’s sideman activities in 1996 included albums by John Berry, Suzy Bogguss, and Twila Paris. He and Verlon Thompson co-wrote “Ol’ Joe Clark,” which appeared on Sam Bush’s album Glamour & Grits. Scott’s most successful effort of the year was “No Way Out,” a song he wrote with Marcus Hummon that Suzy Bogguss recorded for a country singles chart entry.
