Singer Songwriter, Scott Hall was born in Fort Worth, Texas with a deep rooted Texas history. His maternal grandmother was born in the back of a covered mule freight wagon somewhere in Eastland County, Texas in 1904, and could remember when Dallas had dirt streets. His Uncle was a rodeo performer and bull rider turned Cutting Horse trainer, who had a World Champion in 1965. David Lynn Jones and Waylon Jennings recorded a song written about his uncle in 1988 called “High Ridin’ Heros” on Polygram Records. Growing up in the shadow of the Fort Worth Stockyards, Scott naturally developed a love of country music, and has become a real storyteller in the purest sense in the songs which are so uniquely his own. One of Scott’s first summer jobs was swimming pool installation and maintenance. He kept the crew entertained with his singing which was influenced in part by his mother’s love of Rock and Blues music and his paternal grandfather’s passion for country music. It was through the expression of grief over the loss of his grandfather that inspired “Granddads Song”, one of his earliest songs which is included on his album A Matter of Time. Scott has gone on to tell the stories of his life, in songs like Know What You Stand to Lose, True Hearts (written about his Mom and Dad), Paradise TX, I Can’t Lie to Myself, The Rodeo (inspired by a bullrider friend of his) A Matter of Time (the heartbreaking story of one of his best friends) and in possibly his most recognizable song Two Loves Too Late which has been a favorite of Stockyard’s DJs, and DJ requests at clubs such as The Horseman where the song has been in the top 3 all-time requested. Two songs from A Matter of Time have been on the Texas Regional Radio Report Chart Top 50. The Rodeo held a position for five months in 2004, and The Angel in the Girl reached #8 in 2005, finishing #34 of the Top 100 for the year 2005. Scott’s first band was called Panther City , which is the nickname for Fort Worth and goes back to the 1880s. The band was an incredible bunch of guys who were together from 1997 until the end of 2001. During this time, Scott cut his second album titled Panther City. Not able to get radio airplay, which was a problem impacting many of the great Texas Bands of the day, the album was put on where one of the songs was #9 in plays for the year 1999 in the Country Music genre. This was out of thousands of songs uploaded to the site, not just the 100 or so that make it to the air waves on traditional radio. The album was very well received and in demand, but the independent label who produced it went out of business and soon it was not available to buy so it died a premature death. Because of the demand for Scott’s original songs, a few from Panther City were recut on his next album A Matter of Time with a new twist which reflects the changes in his life and expression of his music. When the new Gilley’s Dallas 90,000 sq. ft. Public Entertainment Facility was built in 2003, a talent search throughout Texas was conducted for Gilley’s spotlight vocalist and house band. Scott was selected and lead the band from August 2003 to September 2004. Kelly Walker (Lead Guitar/vocals), Josh Rodgers (Drums), and Colin Alexander (Bass, Lead Backup Vocals) were part of that talent search and continue on as The Scott Hall Band. His live shows, which are energy charged and upbeat, never fail to please and surprise his audiences when he does all his originals and his version of cover tunes such as Luckenboch, Texas (as Willie he’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face), Merle Haggard classics, Pat Green’s Wave On Wave with a Scott Hall twist, and a J. Giel’s Band medley/Bad Company segment that will rock your socks off. Scott and his band are doing the first LIVE at The Horseman Club CD to be recorded on July 14, 2006 on the Desert Sky Records label.

I had the pleasure of hearing Scott play at a benefit in 2004 and loved his music. We moved from Texas to Connecticut and I enjoy his music even now. Just recently bought two more cd's and think I need a few more before my collection is up to date.

We love Scott's music and wish he played in Ft.Worth more often. We are still waiting for them to get their big break! Maybe Scott will write a great song about his wife cheating on him for the last year with a loaded married man at her office. He could thank the guy for the breast implants. That one might top the charts!

I have to say, this is a great effort for Scott Hall and The Benders. From the acoustic work of Scott and Rick Hinton, to the rhythm of Colin Alexander and Josh Rogers, to the shredding lead guitar work of Kelly Walker, this is it. "Ain't No Sunshine" truly shows Kelly's abilities and proficiency on his instrument. It is a live album, and as such there are a few little mistakes (as to be expected), but you really have to listen *hard* to find them. Scott's writing really shines in this collection, two of these are penned by the drummer, Josh Rogers. This is a great CD. You should see these guys live when you get a chance, you won't be disappointed!

Scott Hall is all about the gold and the women. He walked into Twenty Four Hour Fitness with Jen Bettale and Big Kev, jackknifed the dude, he hasn't got up since. He hasn't got up since.

I think Scott is on top of the charts for a one of the best Texas singers. Need him more on the radio y'all! I miss the weekly shows @ Horsemans & local B&G's. You can bet i'm one of his biggest fans. ***** GREAT voice Scott!

Let me save you some money and some time. Go and buy an album from an artist that actually writes good songs. Scotts music its bland and generic.
