In 2011, Scott Reeves became a member of an elite group of songwriters when Toby Keith’s “Made In America” became a #1 hit on the Billboard country music chart. Working in collaboration with Keith and fellow songwriter Bobby Pinson, Reeves crafted a lyric line that resonated with the nation. The song garnered number one status on the county charts as well as a Top 40 position on the Billboard Hot 100, along with BMI award honors. For Reeves, songwriting has become a passion, and performing country music has been a joy.

In 2003 Scott and his best friend, Aaron Benward, formed the country duo, Blue County. Their collaboration quickly led to a record deal with Curb Records, followed by a self-titled album that produced several Billboard country chart hits—“Good Little Girls” (Top 10), “That’s Cool” (co-written by Reeves), “Nothing But Cowboy Boots,” and “That Summer Song.” In 2004 Blue County performed at the County Music Association music festival and the duo was nominated for a coveted CMA award. Later that same year they were also nominated for an American County Music Award. Over the next three years Blue County toured the nation, opening shows for Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Wynonna, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, and many others. Their busy schedule also included recording two tracks for the Evan Almighty motion picture soundtrack and making several appearances on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage. In 2008 Reeves and Benward retired Blue County to focus on independent careers.

As if being an award-winning singer/songwriter wasn’t impressive enough, Scott Reeves is also a very successful Hollywood actor. In 2009 he began a four-year shift on General Hospital for ABC, where he played Dr. Steven Webber. Scott’s filmography also includes eleven years as Ryan McNeil, a feature character on the daytime drama The Young and the Restless, as wells as roles on television series such as Chicago Hope, The King of Queens, Touched By An Angel, and Days of Our Lives. He has also starred in the made for TV movies I Know My First Name Is Steven, Hearts Adrift, When The Cradle Falls, and Half a Dozen Babies. Most recently, Reeves co-starred on the ABC hit television series, Nashville.

Whether it’s playing and singing in the legendary writers’ rounds at Nashville’s Bluebird Café, performing onstage at The Grand Ole Opry, or acting for the bright lights of Hollywood, each facet of Scott’s career fills out this modern day Renaissance man. Reeves’ roots take him from the backwoods of Delight, Arkansas, to the rolling hills of Tennessee, then out west to the sunshine of LA and back again. For Scott Reeves, “Made in America” is more than a lyric—it’s a lifestyle.
