Dylan ScottThe latest single from “New Truck”, is about getting rid of an otherwise awesome vehicle because it contains too many memories of a lost love. In real life, however, he would be much more likely to part with a truck because his mischievous young children did something to ruin it.
“Kids are bad in a good way,” the singer laughs to ABC Audio, talking about his two-year-old daughter Finley and her four-year-old son Beckett. “They are just everywhere to get into everything. So make my life fun.
It may sound counterintuitive, but chaos is actually good for your career. “It makes me forget the music here and there, so I don’t have to sit here and think about the music 24/7,” says Dylan. “Thank God for the children and the women. It’s good.”
Sure, sometimes the two worlds intersect: for example, Beckett is a bit of an aspiring musician, and his favorite artist to cover is his country star dad.
“I bought him a drum set. He wants me to play guitar with him so he can sing,” Dylan continues. “He sings all my music. ‘Hooked’ and ‘My Girl’ and ‘Nobody’ and all that. So it’s cool to see that.
As for the actual inspiration behind “New Truck”? This may be the first new truck the singer buys.
“My first brand new truck was a Ford F-250. That was a few years ago,” he explains. “Man, that was an awesome truck. I’m a Ford guy. I don’t have it anymore, though. I wish.
