Country artist Marlee Scott is releasing her new single, "Train Wreck," to Country radio on Jan. 23 and to iTunes on Jan. 24.
"Train Wreck" is the second single from Scott's forthcoming U.S. debut, due out in spring 2012 through Big Ride Records. Scott has been recording the album in Nashville with engineer/producer David Kalmusky, who produced the project's first single, "Beautiful Maybe." In addition to the Country radio single version, a dance remix of "Train Wreck" will also be available for purchase at iTunes on Jan. 24.
"Train Wreck grabbed me right out of the gate the first time I heard it," says Scott. "The Country/Rock groove and Bluegrass down-home Country chorus had me dancing around my condo! It brings such a fun tongue-in-cheek outlook on what it's like to fall for the wrong person, but you just can't seem to get enough. I love making people smile and chuckle and want to sing along, and 'Train Wreck' seems to do it every time."
Nashville songwriting vets Marcus Hummon, Jedd Hughes and Sarah Buxton penned the rhythm-heavy number, with Country superstar Vince Gill contributing backing vocals to the track.
"Canada has had a great history of some of the best music I have ever heard," says Gill. "My wish for Marlee is to be part of that rich history."
Adds producer Hummon, "Marlee is kind of a dream artist for a writer/producer because she has a lot of courage in choosing her material to record. There's nothing 'safe' about Marlee, and there is far too much 'safe' out there. She comes into the studio prepared vocally, but also prepared emotionally, with a strong sense of the story she is telling."
In December, Scott filmed the "Train Wreck" music video with award-winning director Roman White (Taylor Swift's "Fifteen," Blake Shelton's "Hillbilly Bone," Lady Antebellum's "Hello World").
Scott is currently visiting radio stations on a nationwide radio tour in support of "Train Wreck." In 2011, she visited more than 100 stations in the U.S. and Canada, while maintaining a busy schedule of appearances that included performances at The Breeders' Cup World Championships, the Clemson/Virginia Tech ACC Championship college football game and several MLB baseball and NHL hockey games.
The Canadian-born Scott also launched her "Make It or Bake It" webisode cooking series in 2011 to enthusiastic response. The humorous videos (view them here) feature the singer sharing and cooking some of her favorite recipes.
