Scott Bartlett Acoustic Set.

Scott Bartlett is best known as the lead guitarist for Southern Rock group Saving Abel ("Addicted", "18 Days") but has been creating music under his own brand for years as well. Throughout his career as a touring artist, he has had opportunities to partner with well-known brands like Paul Reed Smith Guitars, Bogner Amps, and Buckle. After mentioning those, he requested that "and Jagermeister for the party enthusiasts out there!" be added into that mix.

Bartlett excitedly mentions his recent purchase of Young Avenue Sound, a first of its kind recording studio in Memphis. When renovations are complete, the location will not only feature a state-of-the-art recording studio, but also nine Airbnb's on site. He has also grown and diversified his personal brand by creating and independently promoting his own custom clothing line under the umbrella of The SB Creations.

The birth of the Hitmen. For years Rick Monroe has been a solo artist hiring players as needed and doing the Nashville shuffle of interchangeable bands, but during covid everything changed. In 2020, Rick and the band, with Bobby Perkins & Alan Beeler, were set to have an amazing year starting off with a West Coast tour when the world shut down. Instead of everyone going their own way, they all stuck together and started streaming live shows from their basements, garages and living rooms. At the same time Rick and Alan Beeler started a standing Tuesday writing meeting which eventually became the bulk of their current album. Through some mutual friends, Rick met Malcolm Springer and they decided to track a few songs and see how it went. Once in the studio it was obvious that this was quickly becoming more of a band situation and when Malcolm brought Jason Bohl in, the sound finally came together. Rick joked one night about how the band was killing it and bam- someone said "The Hitmen" - and that was that.
