Just in time for summer, the musical geniuses behind “The New Dance Mix USA” are going country with “Country Mix USA,” hitting stores on July 17th. The album is the perfect compilation for those summer barbecues or tailgates, delivering 15 country artists from across the globe. Featuring hits from Sonia Leigh, Craig Morgan, Sammy Kershaw, Due West, Tyler Reeve, Jimmie Van Zant and many more.
Big Ride Entertainment artist Marlee Scott will be releasing her debut full-length “Beautiful Maybe” album on June 19th. It’s been a year in the making for the singer, who enlisted the help of producer David Kalmusky for an edgy-pop infused country album. The album will contain 12 songs including the title track single, “Train Wreck,” “I’m Not Your Baby Anymore,” “Jane Doe,” and “Planet of Your Own.” Some of the biggest songwriters in Nashville have joined the project, including Aimee Mayo, Hillary Lindsey, Desmond Child, and Troy Verges among others.
“Beautiful Maybe is something I am so proud of,” says Marlee. “This is my debut album, but I really feel like I have come into my own on this project musically. I think the diversity of these songs offers something unique to my fans that will keep them coming back and listening to this record over and over again. It’s relatable, fun and emotional, and I feel like each song has a message that will truly touch people in so many different ways. In the end, that’s what making Country music is all about.”
“Beautiful Maybe” will be Marlee’s debut album on Big Ride Entertainment, and her current single “Train Wreck” features guest vocals from country music superstar Vince Gill. Not only is her single gaining airplay, but it’s started to become popular in dance clubs with remixes, too. Allen Morgan remixed the title track to fit dance floors across the United States, and is available on iTunes for purchase right now.

Marlee Scott is rolling out her “Train Wreck.” Unlike the real-life thing, hers is one from which you won’t want to turn away.
Scott premiered the video for her single “Train Wreck” today online at CMT.com and on cable with CMT Pure. The video was shot this past December in Nashville. It features Scott as a makeover expert saving three train wrecks from themselves at a speed dating event. The video is directed by Roman White, who has previously worked with some of country’s biggest names: Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and Carrie Underwood.
Vince Gill, who provided harmonies for the single, does not appear in the video. But as you will see, the video does not lack anything minus the guitar slinger:
“Train Wreck” is the second single to be released from Scott’s upcoming debut album, which is due out this spring.
We’ve got a special spot in our hearts here at Keepin’ It Country for Canadian country artist Marlee Scott. Although she is out promoting her new single “Train Wreck”, she still finds time to reach out to her fans through a series of Youtube videos. While her one series “Make It or Bake It with Marlee Scott” garners some giggles and provides some great recipes, her “I Love This Song” series is really neat.
With four videos down so far, Marlee finds a way to tie two mainstream songs together and covers them, usually sans backup. In fact, one of the videos features Marlee sitting on a hammock with her dog nearby as she plays a mashup of two 90s hits: “Baby One More Time” and “I Want It That Way”.
Her latest video in this series blends together two songs from fellow Canadian artists: “Wish You Were Here” by Avril Lavigne and “Next 2 You” by Chris Brown ft. Justin Bieber. With the support of Jay Riehl on drum box and Stephan Laplante on guitar, Marlee strums her own guitar along to that refreshing and sweet voice of hers.
Can we just say we love these mashups?

Marlee’s current single “Train Wreck” is available on iTunes now. Find out what Marlee had to say about the song in our EXCLUSIVE interview with her in January.
It’s always a pleasure to talk to the lovely and talented Marlee Scott. Having talked to her last November and discovering firsthand how genuine she is as a person and as an artist, it was refreshing to catch up with her again today to talk about her career. Marlee is set to release an album this spring through Big Ride Records.
Earlier this week, she released her second single “Train Wreck” from the upcoming album to U.S. radio and iTunes. The single will hit radio airwaves in Canada early February. The upbeat and witty tune even garnered backing vocals from Vince Gill. She’s currently on a nationwide radio station tour promoting the new single. In 2011, she visited over 100 radio stations and still had time to make some major appearances along the way.
Marlee shared with us what fans can expect from the new album, her thoughts about the single, and some insights she has toward herself and her ongoing success as a country artist.

Rising country artist Marlee Scott has announced plans to release a brand-new single this month. “Train Wreck,” which features guest vocals from the legendary Vince Gill, will be sent to radio January 23rd and will be available for purchase on iTunes on January 24th. The song, a co-write by Nashville songwriting veterans Marcus Hummon, Jedd Hughes, and Sarah Buxton, is the second single from Marlee’s upcoming album due out in the Spring. In addition to the country second single, a dance remix of “Train Wreck” will also be released late January.
Marlee has been hard at work on her debut U.S. album with producer David Kalmunsky, who produced the lead single “Beautiful Maybe” from the album.
“Train Wreck grabbed me right out of the gate the first time I heard it,” says Marlee. “The Country/Rock groove and Bluegrass down-home Country chorus had me dancing around my condo! It brings such a fun tongue-in-cheek outlook on what it’s like to fall for the wrong person, but you just can’t seem to get enough. I love making people smile and chuckle and want to sing along, and ‘Train Wreck’ seems to do it every time.”
On working with Marlee on the single, and how he loves Canadian music, Vince said:
“Canada has had a great history of some of the best music I have ever heard. My wish for Marlee is to be part of that rich history.”
Marlee filmed the music video for the single in December with director Roman White (Blake Shelton‘s “Hillbilly Bone,” Taylor Swift‘s “Fifteen,” Lady Antebellum‘s “Hello World”). She’s currently on a Canadian and American radio station tour promoting the new single. In 2011, she visited over 100 radio stations and still had time to make some major appearances along the way.
