"It's Duo Day here at Music Row"

I present for your edification, Brooks & Dunn, Lonesome Spurs, Blue County and Rushlow Harris. They're all vying for your ears, and one of them has the Disc of the Day.

Surprise! It's Blue County. Handsome Aaron Benward and Scott Reeves have a great live presentation and lots of vocal talent. Now I believe they have a hit song, too. "I Get To" is a superbly well written little gem. Lend this your ears. You won't be sorry.

-I think these guys have found themselves the big hit they've been searching for. This works on every level-a pulse-quickening production, a terrific message, a memorable melody and great vocals. There are soul enriching things you don't have to do-you get to. Sign me up for the fan club.

Bio

The past couple of years have been a whirlwind of activity for Aaron Benward and Scott Reeves, otherwise know as Blue County. With a string of successful radio releases and sold-out shows behind them, Blue County is anxious to kick it up another notch with a new album and stage show in 2007.

Auburn, Indiana native Aaron was surrounded by music growing up. After a brief stint in college; his father Jeoffrey, a professional gospel singer, invited Aaron to tour with him. Together they played more than 130 concerts annually for several years and recorded three CD's. The experience sculpted Aaron to the techniques of duo singing, which may be one reason why he never quite hit the jackpot after leaving to seek his fortunes as a solo artist. Scott, who was born in Delight, Arkansas and raised in Los Angeles, started singing at an early age with his Uncle Jack; but, his strongest musical influence came from close family friend, Glen Campbell. After high school, Scott, who had been acting as well as playing music, picked up work in commercials and on television shows.

Aaron and Scott teamed up after meeting on a music video in Nashville. It was an instant brotherhood! After years of friendship, and a bit of gentle pressure from their wives - the guys decided to see how it felt to sing together. They discovered not only did they have a perfect friendship, but also perfect harmonies! One fateful day, the duo made it to Curb Records. There, they sat down in front of Doug Johnson, the A&R director for the Curb/Asylum imprint, and performed. When they were finished, the first words out of Doug's mouth were "Man, one of you is really gonna have to screw this up to not make it work." With that, Blue County was officially born.

With a commitment to family, faith and their craft, Blue County will continue to keep making music and enjoying the ride…as their current single I says, “There’s a lot of things I don’t have to do, I get to….”
