NASHVILLE, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Rocky Comfort Records) - Rocky Comfort Records (RCR) will make its multi-artist label status official with its single release from newcomer Michael Scott. Scott is set make his introduction to country radio and the community with his recording entitled "Ray Ray's Juke Joint." (CDX Vol. 454/August 2008).

Singer/songwriter Michael Scott has opened for George Jones, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith, Montgomery Gentry, Sugarland, Tracy Lawrence and more. His music has been described as rough around the edges with a traditional country flavor and a hint of southern rock.

Scott signed to RCR in February 2008. The debut single from the Wisconsin born artist, "Ray Ray's Juke Joint" (written by James Edwards and Wayd Battle and produced by Michael and Ricky Cobble), is an insider's perspective-a locals-only story-of a bar that sticks to its roots, non-conforming to urbanization. A hidden gem unblemished by "city folk," the song is a nostalgic reflection of the changing face of music (with shout-outs to "Hank, Jr., Haggard and Cash" on a jukebox that runs "three plays for a quarter") and is complete with twang, attitude and personality. The tune's catchy sing-along chorus is complimented by subtle harmonies that lie beneath the lead vocal-you can almost feel the humidity of the bayou.

"Michael Scott opened at a couple of festivals where I played," Tracy Lawrence introduced. "He's a great live entertainer with a unique voice and he's got that 'something special,' not only as an entertainer but as a person, that translates well to the public. His live show reminds me of early Hank Jr.; he's edgy and in your face."

"Michael's a hard-working artist who, in addition to concentrating on his creativity, has a genuine interest in understanding and learning the business," added Laney Lawrence, Co-Owner/General Manager, Rocky Comfort Records and Michael Scott's manager. "He's an active participant in every aspect of his career, and that's what will make him a career artist."

Tracy Lawrence launched the Nashville-based Rocky Comfort Records in July 2006 in partnership with his brother and long-time manager, Laney Lawrence. The indie label has enjoyed radio and retail success with the release of Tracy's No. 1 Hit "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" and his most recent single "Til I Was A Daddy Too" from Tracy's current CD entitled FOR THE LOVE. Michael is the first artist signed to the label. He is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on his RCR project entitled BRING IT ON which is slated to be released in 2009.

In support of the single, Michael is scheduled to embark on an aggressive radio tour. Larry Pareigis of Nine North (Nashville, TN) will spearhead the nationwide radio promotion.
