If you’re a fan of classic country music, Ray Scott needs no introduction. He took time out of his busy CRS 2019 schedule to discuss his no-nonsense approach to music, making music with soul and Honky Tonk Heart.

Scott has been releasing music since his debut dropped in 2005 but that’s included a label split and a Ray-juvenation. Now, Scott isn’t worried about how others perceive his music. He wants it to have soul and if people like it, great but if they don’t, oh well.

“Some of the stuff just sounds so soulless to me,” Scott said about some current music before explaining his own approach. “Let the people who are gonna like it, like it and the rest of them can go like something else.”

Fans seem to really like his brand new EP, Honky Tonk Heart, which just dropped on March 1. The five-track EP is just a portion of the new tunes he’s gearing up to release in a new way.
