F.A.Y. Recordings is proud to announce that Scott will be inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame at a gala ceremony in Knoxville on October 5th.  He is sharing this honor with the following list of distinguished writers:

Doris Gove, Children’s Literature
Charles Dodd White, Fiction
Wayne Bledsoe, Nonfiction
Linda Parris-Bailey, Playwriting
Brian Griffin, Poetry
Scott Miller, Songwriting
Cormac McCarthy, Lifetime Achievement
John Rice Irwin, Outstanding Contribution to East Tennessee Culture and Literacy

As Scott put it “hewas raised on a cattle farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, graduated from The College of William & Mary, but will tell you he didn’t grow up until he moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 1990.  He began honing his songwriting in local bars around town, most notably a weekly gig at the now defunct Hawkeye’s Corner as well as regional shows.”

I’m guessing that Scott has been on the personal Hall of Fame of everyone on this mailing list, but it’s always nice to have your discerning taste for great writing validated by a impartial third party.  Join us in congratulating Scott for his contribution to the American Songbook.
