Scott Hendricks - Biography


Scott Hendricks was born in Clinton, Oklahoma. While attending Oklahoma State University, Hendricks met Tim DuBois (who would later become president of Arista Nashville) and Greg Jennings (who would later become a member of the band Restless Heart). Hendricks moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1978, first working as an engineer in a studio owned by Tompall & the Glaser Brothers. His first work as a producer came in 1985, when he and DuBois co-produced Restless Heart's debut album. From there, he continued producing for several other artists, including Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, Trace Adkins, Faith Hill, John Michael Montgomery, Steve Wariner, Suzy Bogguss and Blake Shelton. During the 1990s, Hendricks co-produced over 30 Number One country hits.

Hendricks and Faith Hill were engaged in February 1995. Hill broke off the engagement in 1996 when she began a relationship with Tim McGraw, whom she married that same year.

By 1996, Hendricks had become the president and CEO of Capitol Records Nashville. There, he worked as a producer for several other country music acts on that label, including Trace Adkins and River Road.

Hendricks exited Capitol in 1997, and later took over as president of Virgin Records' Nashville division from its establishment in 1998 until its dissolution in 2001. Since then, he has returned to his work as a producer. Hendricks is also currently the senior Vice President of A&R at Warner Music Nashville.

Famous quotes containing the word biography:

    The best part of a writer’s biography is not the record of his adventures but the story of his style.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    As we approached the log house,... the projecting ends of the logs lapping over each other irregularly several feet at the corners gave it a very rich and picturesque look, far removed from the meanness of weather-boards. It was a very spacious, low building, about eighty feet long, with many large apartments ... a style of architecture not described by Vitruvius, I suspect, though possibly hinted at in the biography of Orpheus.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A biography is like a handshake down the years, that can become an arm-wrestle.
    Richard Holmes (b. 1945)
