Raised with mid-western charm in Clinton, Indiana, Abbi Scott has always had a passion for music. Growing up on traditional country and classic rock legends, Scott has cultivated her own unique southern-rock sound over the years.

How has growing up in Clinton, in the Midwest, influenced the music you write and perform?

Growing up in such a small town, it really influenced the music I write. I chose to write about things that were truly happening around me, whether it be first hand experiences or things that my close friends were experiencing. I truly embraced growing up in a rural environment and wrote a lot of my early music about that.

Which artists did you grow up listening to?

Growing up I listened to Martina McBride, The Dixie Chicks, Theory of a Deadman, Motley Crue and Miranda Lambert. (I loved the mixes of rock & country from my parents!)

How has your family supported your music career?

My family has gone above and beyond for my musical dreams — they’ve supported me every single step of the way. I physically couldn’t do this without them.
