Scott Collins is a native Kentuckian and has attended both University of Ky & Georgetown College in their respective music programs. 

Through the years, Scott has performed locally in many restaurants, coffee houses, festivals, and concerts as well as providing musical entertainment and comedy for events in the US and abroad as well.  He has been privileged to use music for its ability to unite people in enjoyment in many countries, such as: Russia, Philippines, Africa, Peru, Panama, and Germany as well as many parts of the United States, including Branson Mo. and Nashville. Scott has also had the pleasure of recording & performing with the late Jim Varney, perhaps know best from his character Ernest P. Worrell.

Scott is an instrumentalist/composer that employs a form of instrumentation that is fairly unique. In essence, he's a one man band using several instruments and technologies including guitar, harmonica, banjo, and vocals to provide people with many of their favorite songs ranging from Country and Bluegrass, to Gospel and Popular Hits from the 50s-80s. He also specializes in more low key, single guitar performances as well.

Because it's hard to completely describe Scott's one-man band show, feel free to check out some of the videos posted here on the site!

 Scott Collins is available for providing entertainment for your festival, hayride, campfire event, or misc venue.  Please feel free to call at (859) 224-7858 or email: Janandscott@juno.com

"Music is the universal language of mankind." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


"Scott is charismatic and funny with a great sense of melody and a gift for songwriting. He always knows how to please a crowd."

-Frank Bowers (of Montgomery Gentry)

"Scott is a great and versatile musician and has a great selection of tunes that please all crowds."

-Tony Hammonds (formerly of Montgomery Gentry)

"Scott's music is as real and pure as it gets! You can't help but feel emotional as his heart pours out on songs like 'Hold On' and 'Right Where I Wanna Be.' And 'Maybury's Gone' really speaks to me as it brings back memories of the great television lessons that permeated our lives growing up!"

-Tim Chewning (touring drummer for Shania Twain, Trace Adkins, John Michael Montgomery, etc.)

"It is nice to see that my old student Scott Collins has developed into such a fine musician and songwriter. My favorite original songs are 'Hold On' and 'Mayberry's Gone.' Good job! Scott played guitar, bass, piano, banjo and sang good too. Wow! He's the whole band! Keep up the good work."

-Dr. Tim Lake (accomplished bluegrass musician and composer) 

"Nobody Could Hurt Like Hank is completely entertaining. It shows off Scott's extensive writing talents as well as his singing and playing gifts. As an Andy Griffith fan(atic), Scott had me [at] 'Mayberry's Gone.' The title track is my favorite and I was particularly knocked out by the vocalizations of Katie Feola on the classic 'Over the Rainbow.'  I was so impressed, in fact, I invited Scott to perform on my morning radio broadcast. Katie came along and they were amazing! The album also features a plethora of solid musicians and backup vocalists. I highly recommend Nobody Could Hurt Like Hank to anyone who enjoys nostalgia, great musicianship and hope for tomorrow. Well done, Scott. Please come back!"

-Jack Pattie (of NewsTalk 590)

"If you are planning a wedding, corporate event or an evening on the patio, hiring Scott Collins will ensure everyone has a good time."

-K.O. Roberts (Nashville entertainment consultant)

"Scott is one of those rare entertainers known as a triple threat in the music industry, possessing talent as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Either enjoying his recorded music or attending a live performative, you will not be disappointed."

-Dan Huff (President/COO, iDitty Entertainment)
