A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mike Jurkovic

Wizened and weathered, This Weary Way is son Darrell Scott's great gift to his dad, who at the age of 71, is releasing his debut recording.

This Weary Way consists of eleven originals and two emphatic covers (Dorsey Dixon's Crash On the Highway and Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues) written along life's ruddy road. Tough and tender as age decides and demands and sounding at times like The Man In Black himself, Scott sings/speaks about life, love, spiritually and the common universe we all share. With son Darrell producing and playing all sorts of string instruments, musicians include Dirk Powell on fiddle and Dan Dugmore on pedal steel. Listen my children and you will hear a life that has made life work in such songs as Sunday With My Son, Since Jesus Came Into My Heart, Sinner and The Writer.
