Kix Brooks and ACC are on CISN Country 103.9 Edmonton and Country 105 Calgary Saturday’s 8 AM to Noon.
Dylan Scott’s New Truck is #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, followed by American Country Countdown.
“I want to get to a point where I don’t miss the top of the charts and always put out great music. Having a long career in country music like someone I look up to, Tim McGraw is about much more than having huge numbers on TikTok and Instagram. You have to make great songs that speak for themselves.”
This week's top 5 on #CountryAirplay:
— billboard charts (@billboardcharts) August 9, 2022
New Truck is Dylan’s second Billboard #1. In July 2017, My Girl led the Country Airplay chart.
Dylan’s songs Nobody, June 2021 and Hooked, September 2018, hit #2 on the Country Airplay chart.
“The first time I heard New Truck, it sounded different than anything else I was listening to. We’ve all been in a situation where you and your significant other have broken up, and it’s tough. Every time you get back in your truck, you go back to certain memories of them in there as well. So this song is saying, Man, I need a new truck to quit thinking about her.”
Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, Hunter Phelps and Hardy wrote New Truck.
“I am first and foremost, an artist. When I moved to town, I started writing music and fell in love with it. But there are too many great songs in this town to overlook by writing every song on your album. I have to find stuff that’s relatable to me, and New Truck is one of those. It relates to my life, so why try to write something else when I could just record this great song?”
New Truck is from Dylan’s new LP Livin’ My Best Life, released on August 5, 2022.
“The music is a little more mature, and I don’t mean that in a way, like, oh, every song is a mature song. That last album I released was three or four years ago, and in three or four years I’ve had babies, and I’ve grown as an adult. The music I think is a little more mature in a good way. I’m very curious to get it out. I think it’s my best batch of music I’ve ever recorded, so I’m really excited about it. I think it’s that group of music that takes somebody’s career to the next level. I don’t mean that in like a cocky way at all, I didn’t write a lot of these songs on this album. I just wanted to find great songs at the end of the day, and I think that’s what we’ve got.”

“It’s a different vibe. If you listen to my music, a lot of my music is love songs just because it’s real to me. The love is real. I’ve been with my wife since I was 15 years old. This is actually a breakup song, which is the total opposite of what I usually do. It’s not even about a truck, even though it’s called New Truck. It’s basically about a guy who hops up in his truck and still sees the memory of this girl, he’s still finding her chapstick or hair ties. There was a stint in my life when I was dating my wife, and we broke up for a few months. It was tough, so I’ve been there, I’ve dealt with it. The song spoke to me. I’m sure it speaks to a lot of people the same way. It’s an up-tempo breakup song that just feels good. It was a cool song and something different that I’d not recorded yet.”
