Go Behind the Scenes of Dylan Scott’s Sold-Out Troubadour Show [Exclusive Pictures]
Dylan Scott recently played a sold-out headlining show at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles, and he's sharing his behind-the-scenes photo tour diary with fans in a Taste of Country exclusive.
The iconic venue was the hub of the singer-songwriter scene in the 1960s and '70s. Legendary acts including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and a Who's Who of world-class musicians marked watershed career moments on the stage, and Eagles founding members Don Henley and Glenn Frey first met at the bar at the Troubadour, according to the venue's website. Vince Gill was discovered by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell on the stage of the Troubadour long before he launched his solo career, and the venue remains a vital part of the music scene.
Scott chronicled every moment of his big show on June 6 in a photographic tour diary that began as soon as he claimed his bags at the airport.

"Playing the Troubadour was a great thrill and probably the highlight of my career thus far," Scott enthuses. "To know that James Taylor, Elton John and countless other greats performed there early in their careers put everything in perspective and made me realize how fortunate I was to perform there in front of my fans. It was an awesome night and one that I will never forget."
"Everything’s really personal about the song. It’s mine and my wife’s life, basically. It’s a real special song," he says. "It’s taken on new meaning now because it’s a song that’s blowing up for us and changing my life."
The couple have been together since they were teenagers. Scott admits that his newfound success with "My Girl" is something he's still getting used to.
"It took it a minute to sink in, I’ll be honest with you," Scott says. "It’s like, ‘Is this really real life?’ Because it’s a song that I wanted for a really long time."
