Southern Mom Loves: Country Music's Newest Star: Pete Scobell Band

Country Music's Newest Star: Pete Scobell Band

Thursday, 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.

Pete Scobell is a celebrated Navy SEAL, competitive skier and athlete, mountain climber, inspiration, and advocate, but the guitar has been Scobell’s only constant companion as he’s traveled the world.

“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.

But he was far from Nashville and the music industry. A guiding hand intervened again when Scobell met Wynonna Judd and Cactus Moser through the makers of the film “The Hornet’s Nest,” a 2014 Afghanistan war documentary. They invited him to record his song “For the One’s I Stand Beside” to appear in the movie. Shortly after, while on the Patriot Tour and with the help of Taya Kyle, he came up with the idea to record “Hearts I Leave Behind,” featuring Wynonna, to honor a former teammate, “American Sniper” Chris Kyle. These two songs helped him round out the EP that was his first foray into the music business.

The release of the 12-track album Walkin A Wire on September 11th, 2015 represents the culmination of a lifelong dream. His music deals with loss, life after the military, and supporting our veterans in their endeavors once they return to civilian life. He is a tireless advocate of veterans rights and a busy lecturer on the effects and causes of traumatic brain injuries.

True country music fans will not be disappointed. The sound is old-school country and Pete Scobell has a classic voice that can't be denied. The songs are so personal you feel as if you're getting to know him, and your heart breaks for him at times, but the message is clear: This eagle will soar.

Scobell’s album and story reminds you to count your blessings and keep what’s truly important close to your heart. You can find out more about the new album Walkin a Wire here.
