The legend of Scotty "Boy" McCoy was born when, after many years of avoiding it, I finally embraced my Southern roots. Although I spent many years playing music and writing songs, it wasn't until I found my "country voice" that things really took shape for me as an artist.
I grew up in the hills of east Tennessee listening to bluegrass and classic country. My parents though were more into the modern rock of the day like the Cowsills, Carole King, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Dionne Warwick, Mason Williams, and Herb Albert & the Tijuana Brass. A big influence on me was a collection of my mother's 45's that I found in my grandmother's basement. She had a lot of Elvis, "Sixteen Tons" by Tennessee Ernie Ford, "Love and Marriage" and "High Hopes" by Frank Sinatra, and "Splish Splash" by Bobby Darin.
When I started buying my own records, I would get the K-Tel compilation records with all the hits of the day. Funny songs I remember were "The Streak" by Ray Stevens and "I Don't Like Spiders and Snakes" by Jim Stafford and David Bellamy, "My Ding-a-ling" by Chuck Berry, and "Purple People Eaters" by Sheb Wooley. My first two real albums were Lynyrd Skynyrd Pronounced and Seals & Crofts Greatest Hits.
As a budding teenager I became a big KISS fan and shortly thereafter a Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath devote. As I got more into the "sound" of records I was fascinated with the production on the REO Speedwagon You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can't Tune a Fish album and the Journey Infinity album produced by Roy Thomas Baker. I also really admired Billy Joel and Elton John and Bernie Taupin as songwriters. When I decided to play guitar, (just like the song says) my dad bought me a "How To Play the Blues" book and record by B.B. King.
So, with all that variety of musical influence, it really took me a long time to find my own style. But when I did, I started looking for musicians for whom the blues, country, rock & roll, and heavy metal resonated. Also, noting how historically it was the combination of styles that really seemed to change the musical landscape, I decided to combine the new country voice I had with my favorite music; rock and metal. I ran two ads. One was Johnny Cash meets Metallica and the other was Jerry Lee Lewis meets AC/DC.
