Maybe She Lied (Scott Coner with Tanya Tucker)
I'm excited to release my latest music video, "Maybe She Lied", a duet with country legend #TanyaTucker. I was on West End in #Nashville when I got the call that Tanya would be doing the song with me. I remember all of my feelings going from joy to a very deep fear very quickly that day. I kept asking myself what kind of idiot thinks he can actually stand up next to Tanya Tucker and sing? She met me at the studio though, and all of my fear went away. I remember that she was very prepared, very nice, and very good. Her voice sounded like an angel that afternoon, and I knew right away that she had made the song a very special one. I don't listen to my own music much, but when I hear this song, it truly makes me smile all over inside. There is no way I can thank Tanya enough for helping me, but I will always think of her as the Queen of Country Music. #ScottConer, #MaybeSheLied, #CountryMusic, #CountryVideo, #Love, #LoveLost, #Divorce, #Separation, #Healing, #Memories https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/scott-coner/id333235738
Whiter Shade of Pale - Scott Coner Featuring Carol Chase
Country artist Scott Coner and rock/pop vocalist Carol Chase have teamed up for a new music video of the classic Procol Harum hit, "Whiter Shade of Pale". Coner, who has recorded several classic rock covers in the past, says he discovered the song in the early 1980s on the soundtrack for the movie "The Big Chill". It's been a favorite ever since. To download the song, visit Scott Coner's iTunes page at https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/scott-coner/id333235738 Scott Coner: "Our new video, 'Whiter Shade of Pale' began today. Honestly, I have been a little bit apprehensive with this song. First of all, I have very strong feelings for the original recording. There is just something both powerful and magical in that package. Secondly, the mix was a step away from my sound. It was actually mixed without me in the building, something I never would have allowed. But, Carol Chase was just as involved in the song as I was, and she took charge of getting it done while I was in Florida. The end result was something softer and more gentle I think. A very thick sound with an adult contemporary edge is what I hear, and it has grown on me. I have always had a tendency to place each instrument apart and go for a clear, “big” sound. Even if I’m doing a classic country song, I stay in this mindset. Early on in life, I kind of fell in love with bands that showcased their drummer. Bands like Mellencamp, Zeppelin, and even Aerosmith always worked for me. I love the way AC/DC gets such a basic, dry sound with their drums. I don’t know, I suppose I am a creature of habit. But this mix was good for me. It kind of forced me to trust someone else for a change and let them pursue what they heard for a change. All in all, I am happy with the end result. I feel like we paid proper respect to the original recording but still allowed for a new approach that was a combination of today and yesterday. I hope people like the song. I mean, how could you not like this freaking song? Besides, Carol Chase is pretty awesome!" "Whiter Shade of Pale" follows the release of a music video for "Maybe She Lied", a hit duet featuring Scott Coner and country singing legend Tanya Tucker. The "Maybe She Lied" video has been downloaded almost 250,000 times at http://www.Facebook.com/ScottConerMusic. The song hit number one on the United Kingdom's Hot Disk Top 40.

Sanibel (from "In The Studio with Scott Coner")
Country artist Scott Coner has released "Sanibel", a music video honoring Sanibel Island, Fla., from his acoustic video series called "In The Studio With Scott Coner."

LINE IN IT - SCOTT CONER
PUBLISHED JULY 1, 2016 SCOTT CONER: Todays society has gotten itself into the weeds. It is far past time we help each other find some common ground and begin the process of taking back what is rightfully ours. I wrote this song, “Put a Line in It” about that very thing. I think it is time we draw a line in the sand and dare anybody to cross it. We are the greatest country in the history of man. We are a nation based and built upon christian principles. We aren’t perfect, but we are about to pursue excellence like never before. At this point, we don’t have much of a choice. We need to turn back to God. We need to pledge our allegiance to OUR flag. We need our pride back tenfold. And we need to thank every single service man or woman we have the privilege of meeting for protecting our nation. It is time we stand together and dare anybody to mess with the U.S. It is time we, “Put a Line in It”.
Sweet Mary (Cover of the Rock Classic by Wadsworth Mansion)
I am thrilled to present my latest music video and single, "Sweet Mary" by Wadsworth Mansion. This classic pop tune, which was written by the late Steve Jablecki, hit the top 10 charts way back in 1971. The song was written about a soldier in Vietnam that got a letter from his wife or girlfriend. She says in the letter that she “has a stomach full of love”, and he needs to get home to his family. I understand that Steve wrote it on a piano and pitched it around New York before the band recorded it. I think the song was simple, catchy and different to anything else I had been subjected to at that early stage of my life. I don’t remember ever hearing the song on the radio. I only heard it at the farm in Kentucky. Maybe that was the reason I loved it so much. Marcia Ramirez joins me on vocals.
