Curb Records recording artist Dylan Scott joins forces with GRAMMY® Award nominated, ACM and CMA Award winner Jimmie Allen with their just released unifying anthem “In Our Blood.” The smoky truth-filled track previews Scott’s upcoming LP, "Livin’ My Best Life", which arrives Aug. 5, 2022.
Together, Scott and Allen advocate for all the ways we’re more alike than we are different as their harmonies form the foundation for “In Our Blood.” The haunting melody wraps itself around lyrics that define our shared human existence, a universal experience written in our DNA, passed down from generation to generation.
“In Our Blood” was written by David Fanning, Brad Rempel, and Matt McGinn, and produced by Will Weatherly and Matt Alderman. The powerful offering provides another glimpse into Scott’s upcoming "Livin’ My Best Life" .
Scott's new record delivers a personal set filled with the backroads, barstools, church pews and relationships that defined the Louisiana native’s youth. The singer/songwriter co-penned eight of the album’s sixteen selections, whose credits boast an all-star lineup of writers like Morgan Wallen, Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Thomas Rhett, HARDY, and more.
Notable highlights include fiery heartbreak single “New Truck,” No. 1 hit “Nobody,” and recent TikTok viral smash “Can’t Have Mine (Find You A Girl).” Recently the hitmaker wrapped up his spring leg of the “Livin’ My Best Life" tour, with direct support from Dylan Marlowe. The 22-city coast-to-coast headlining trek saw Scott bring his full-throttle energy to a mix of fan favorites, as well as new tracks from his forthcoming collection. Scott will continue to tour this summer.
