New Zealand’s contemporary country-rock scene is being driven forward by one of country music’s hottest male artists, Cam Scott, recently awarded CMANZ Male Artist of the Year less than 12 months since his launch as a recording artist.
Since debuting his recording career in late 2014 with summer country-pop track, SOMETHIN BOUT A GIRL, Cam’s performed at CMC Rocks QLD (alongside Lady Antebellum, Big & Rich & Lee Brice), at Tamworth Country Music Festival (alongsideMorgan Evans & Kaylee Bell), as well as growing with the growth for the genre in the South Island headlining & performing at key events such as the iconic Middlemarch Singles Ball and Lincoln Barn Party & Lincoln Garden Party.
Cam has been announced on the CMC Rocks QLD line-up in 2016 (alongside Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean & Kelsea Ballerini), as well as more exciting big stages in the pipeline for late 2015/2016.
In September 2015, Cam Scott releases his second studio single, PRAYIN RAIN, which takes a different direction into a more rock-driven, heart-ache ballad which showcases his natural vocal talent.
His debut onto the international country music scene follows his long list of accomplishments in New Zealand and Australia signalling his bright future as a talented artist.
He has already won the NZ Gold Guitar Senior Male Section, Senior Overall at the NZ Southern Alp Awards and the latest which is the pathway to the country music capital of the world, the Horizon Award at the 2013 NCMA which saw him have the opportunity to perform on the Global Artist Stage at the 2014 CMA Fest, the world’s biggest country music event.
He has also been involved in the Australian country music scene attending the Australian College Of Country Music in Tamworth, NSW, in 2011 and then performing at the Tamworth Country Music Festival where he won the 2012 ‘Aristocrat Entertainer of the Year’ and Male Section of the CCMA Awards.
Cam brings his high energy performance to all his live shows with new music off his soon to be released EP in early 2016, along with covers of the best contemporary country/rock from the US.
