In the years that followed Scotty did a national Tide laundry commercial, appeared on Star Search and performed with his band at nightclubs and fairs all through his teenage years. Scotty's early years also took him to Texas where he performed with Mickey Gilley several times at the original Gilley's in Pasadena, TX. In 1994 he moved to Las Vegas to co-host in an award winning production show called "Country Tonight." In 1999 Scotty went to work for the legend Wayne Newton. He played guitar, fiddle banjo and mandolin on stage and eventually became Mr. Newton's music director until 2007.
"It was an education I couldn't have paid for... all those years with Mr. Newton. He truly was like a dad to me. All the USO shows all over the planet plus the TV and movie work we did. I will forever be grateful..." SA

Making TV appearances on Ellen, Good Morning America, Kelly and Michael and the Grand Ole Opry.
For the last couple years Scotty has been writing and performing all over the Texas panhandle and west coast. "We have put out a few things over the years but I have never been so proud of the music we are writing and recording now. There was a period where the kind of country I play, more traditional, story and instrument driven tunes weren't cool. Now what I do is cool again, Thank God" SA
