Country Music's Newest Star: Pete Scobell BandThursday, September 10, 2015
This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.
I'd like to introduce you to one of Country Music's hottest new artists: Pete Scobell of the Pete Scobell Band. Through a chance encounter with a Country Music legend, this former Navy SEAL with a passion for music was encouraged to give Nashville a try. And Nashville obliged.
“I didn’t just wake up one morning and decide I want to be a musician,” Scobell said. “It’s something I’ve done my whole life. My mom was a music teacher. She died when I was 10 months old and she left all her instruments. That’s how I learned how to play. I was always trying to feel closer to her.”
“And then I got hurt,” Scobell said. “The irony was I was always playing music, then when I ended up in the hospital for traumatic brain injury, they have music therapy. They said, ‘Do you play music? That’s the best thing you can do to help your brain.’ I thought it was cool that my passion for music met up with my rehabilitation, and it was more than just a passion at that point. It was something that I needed to do. So, I went out skiing – that was one of my other passions. I was skiing in a competition, I hit my head again and I’m back in the hole. So I picked up my guitar again and focused on playing and writing. And it became very clear to me: For some reason, God keeps putting this thing back in my hands.”
