ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Lay Your Love On Me" was originally released on CD on December 12, 1994 on Twitchy Records which was, at the time, based in Austin, TX. The album features 11 songs, all penned by Scott Hoyt, with the exception of "Lies", which he co-wrote with his younger sister, Helen. It was recorded at Lorien Sound Studios in Austin, Texas and was engineered by Gordon Garrison.
The CD is now a collector's item and fetches quite a hefty price from CD collectors, especially online. In response to many requests from friends and fans, the album is now available for download for the first time.
"Lay Your Love On Me" is the only CD released by Scott Hoyt. He had several singles prior to the release of this album, but they were only available on 45 rpm vinyl records or cassettes. (There are plans to convert those master tapes into a digital format for download release at some point in the future).
The first single from the album was the title track, "Lay Your Love On Me". In December of 1994, it was featured on a national radio program entitled, "The Country Challenge", which aired on the ABC Radio/Satellite Music Network. The network was based out of Dallas, Texas and had over 220 affiliates from coast to coast. The program pitted two new single releases against each other by playing each song at the beginning of the program. Then, the phone lines were opened up, nation-wide, for one hour for the listeners to call in and vote for the song they liked the most. At the end of the hour, the winner or "Champion" was announced and would then return the next night to face the next "Challenger".
On Monday, December 19, 1994, "Lay Your Love On Me" defeated "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" by upcoming artist Shania Twain on Mercury Records; on Tuesday, it defeated "Tryin' To Get To New Orleans" by Arista Records new, hot group, The Tractors (by 70% of the vote); on Wednesday, "Lay Your Love On Me" defeated another Arista act, Radney Foster, and his re-make of the Merle Haggard song, "The Running Kind" (by 69% of the vote); Thursday, Scott scored a major upset when he defeated country superstar, Clint Black and his new single, "Wherever You Go", on RCA Records (by 70% of the vote); and lastly, on Friday, Doug Supernaw's new single, "What'll You Do About Me?", on BNA Records, succumbed, losing by 69% of the vote. After such and amazing feat, ABC Radio/Satellite Music Network, added "Lay Your Love On Me" into rotation, which was practically unheard of for an independent record.
TM Century Hit Disc, another Dallas, Texas-based company was the music source for over 2,800 radio stations, world-wide, as well as virtually all major sydicated radio programs. TM Century's music programmer, John Lentz, stated: "I don't put independent product on very often, but when I heard "Lay Your Love On Me", I thought it was one of the best country records I ever heard in a long, long time. And that comes from the heart. I think Scott has alot of talent".
The second single from the album was "Wild, Wild Women", which had an accompanying video that the Nashville Network deemed "to risque" to air. At some point, the video may be released on the internet so people can finally see it. (By the way, it is NOT "risque" by today's standards) The third official single was, "You're The One", but several songs were picked up off the album by various radio stations and put into rotation like "Faithless One", Don't Lead Me On", and "Achin' Arms". "Achin' Arms" was also featured in an ABC television special.
Because the "Lay Your Love On Me" single was picked up by the ABC Radio/Satellite Music Network and TM Century "Hit Disc", the song got international exposure. Walter Wuyts', music programmer for the "Country Rock 911" syndicated radio show in Antwerp, Belgium stated: "Scott Hoyt's CD is one of the best country CD's of the year. All the numbers on the CD have star potential and I play alot of them. I've already made the CD, "CD Of The Week". Kirsten Helm Petersen with Radio Viborg in Denmark remarked, "It's a great CD, and I enjoy playing it on my show. I'm VERY impressed that Scott Hoyt has written all the songs himself...GOOD WORK INDEED." Jan Vergouwen at W.R.O. Radio in The Netherlands wrote: "I'm very happy with this album. I'm astonished with the voice of Scott. Lyrics and music are impressive on this CD. His album walks like a red thread through my show. I give extra attention to it". Jan's Top-30 radio airplay charted dated Friday, March 3rd, 1995 showed 5 songs from the "Lay Your Love On Me" album on the chart at the same time, in positions #2, #7, #13, #19 and #25.
The success of "Lay Your Love On Me" and it's singles led to television appearances on the now-defunct, Nashville Network. Scott appeared on Crook & Chase's "Music City Tonight Show", "Hot, Hip & Country", and a TNN Special entitled, "Newcomer Showcase".
Musicians on the album include: Scott Hoyt: lead vocals/backing vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, and keyboards; Ralph Gilmore: drums and backing vocals; Carlos Standley: bass guitar; Don Brewer: bass guitar; Floyd Domino: piano; Jim Loessberg: pedal steel guitar; Johnny Gimble: fiddle and Bobby Flores: fiddle.
