This Weary World

wayne-scottTalk about paying your dues. This is Wayne Scott’s recording debut at age 71, after decades of working in auto factories, steel mills and putting up chain link fences—and playing covers in juke joints and road houses. This Weary World is almost all Wayne’s writings, though, and they show him to be a remarkable talent who sounds a lot like Hank Williams. His boy Darrell—a top Nashville writer and session man—pushed Scott into this project, and it’s our good fortune that he did so. Wayne Scott is old-time Country in the 21st century—authentic and true and timeless. —Mark Boardman
