Following hot on the heels of his first release ‘Paper To Pen’, Scotty Mack has dropped his 2nd single, 'Beers Like Bullets',  now available  on all digital platforms.  'Beers Like Bullets' has an oft too real life topic of how a romantic breakup can prompt a broken heart to try and dull the pain in inappropriate ways, possibly having a life time of ramifications.    The honesty of the song and the singer resonates throughout the hardcore reality that  resonates in 'Beers Like Bullets'.

“I just wanted to tell my story of a time in my life where the pain of a relationship breakdown led me into a downward spiral and turning to alcoholism. It’s a true story of how I lost myself and spent so long locked in my house and drinking to numb the pain, and if it wasn't for my close friends, I would still be that person. Thankfully I managed to claw my way back to finding my true self and who I was after writing the song, and if you're struggling you can too.” 

 

Growing up in Outback Queensland, Scotty Mack calls Charleville home, living and breathing what life in the outback means to this inspiring singer/songwriter. Scotty got his first chance to sing on stage with the Walmsley Brothers, performing on the back of a truck at the Charleville racecourse. “From then on I was hooked”, says Scotty. Influenced by Garth Brooks, Brooks and Dunn and Alan Jackson, and with a passion for country music, Scotty Mack became a Finalist in the ‘Road to Tamworth’ and ‘Queensland Champion of Champions’ competitions and has recently auditioned on The VOICE Australia.

Growing up in Outback Queensland, Scotty Mack calls Charleville home, living and breathing what life in the outback means to this inspiring singer/songwriter. As Scotty proudly explains, “I was always a music kid, I used to pretend to be Elvis in kindergarten and then dance like Michael Jackson in local primary school talent shows.” 

But In 1995, Scotty’s world was turned upside down following the sudden death of his father. He was only ten years old, and this would be a huge turning point for both Scotty and his Mum. “Mum loved Country music and a good time”, explains Scotty. “We would go to all the local events where a band was playing, and I remember Mum taking me to the Roma Country Music Festival to watch my cousin sing. I said I wanna do that mum!!” 

Not long after, Scotty got his first chance to sing on stage with the Walmsley brothers, performing on the back of a truck at the Charleville racecourse. “From then on I was hooked”, says Scotty. Influenced by Garth Brooks, Brooks and Dunn and Alan Jackson, Scotty Mack became a Finalist in the Road to Tamworth and Qld Champion of Champions competitions. 

Putting it simply, Country music is Scotty’s life, his identity and his passion. This passion comes to life through his poignant new single 'Beers Like Bullets', a song written about a man’s struggle with a breakup, and turning to alcohol for comfort, a story of what it’s like to ultimately live with alcohol addiction.   Scotty Mack is due to become the name on the lips of Country music lovers from down under and all around the globe.
