Today, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sophia Scott shares the cinematic but soul-baring video for “City Limits,” one of the most autobiographical tracks from her acclaimed debut album BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS (EMPIRE). Filmed in her hometown of Boulder, Colorado, “City Limits” is the latest offering from Scott’s newly launched ‘Barstool Confessions: On Super8’ — a one-of-a-kind video series that adds another layer of real-life storytelling to Scott’s daringly honest full-length debut. Go HERE to watch the video for “City Limits” now. 

A gorgeous showcase for Colorado’s stunning natural beauty, the video for “City Limits” finds Scott working again with CeCe Dawson — the director behind the recently released and irresistibly tongue-in-cheek video for What I’m Wearing Tonight,” also filmed in Boulder. Shot in the dreamlike light of magic hour, the visual follows Scott as she drives along mountaintop roads and lingers on a hillside vista with a breathtaking view of her city. But while her love for her hometown is deeply felt in every frame, the video perfectly echoes the potent tension at the heart of the song: a self-discovery anthem about chasing your dreams and carving out your own path, even when it leads you far from the people and places you love most (“Oh, I’ve been feeling fenced in/By a small town that won’t change/Maybe the grass is greener/Where no one knows my name”). As the sky darkens and the lights of Boulder get brighter, Scott lets go and dances along to the sprawling guitar solo that closes out “City Limits,” beautifully channeling the track’s undercurrent of unbridled freedom.

Scott shares, "I wrote this song about growing up in Boulder, CO, and getting too comfortable with the city and people that I was used to, but also being afraid to leave. However, I knew that if I wanted to chase my dreams I wouldn’t be able to accomplish the goals I had in mind if I stayed. I love my hometown and it will always hold the most special place in my heart, but I had to get out in order to spread my wings."

The video for “City Limits” arrives on the heels of Scott’s recent turn as a featured artist on singer/songwriter Zack Dyer’s rendition of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” a slow-burning duet that premiered in late November. With more new videos in the ‘Barstool Confessions: On Super8’ series due out soon, Scott is wrapping up a phenomenal year that included making her bucket list Grand Ole Opry debut the very same day that BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS dropped.

All throughout BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS, Scott shares the story of a life-changing breakup with both full-hearted intimacy and refreshing lack of inhibition. Over the course of the album’s 12 fearlessly candid songs, the Pandora Artist To Watch 2024: Country opens up about some of her less-than-healthy coping mechanisms and documents a few of the rowdier moments on her way to heartbreak recovery. But thanks to the soulful sincerity and raw sensitivity of her songwriting — as well as her gift for making the specific feel so universal — BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS ultimately speaks to the unparalleled power of living your truth, owning your femininity, and rediscovering your confidence in the most unlikely places. 

Along with “City Limits,” BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS also features the previously released singles “Boots, Jeans, & Jesus” (hailed by Holler as a “cheekily knowing celebration of all the ups and downs…”), “Lipstick on You” (lauded by MusicRow's DISClaimer as "[s]ultry and soul-tinged….Add some blues to your playlist with this dandy, stately lament”), “No You Didn’t” (a stomp-and-clap anthem spotlighting Scott’s singular mix of humor, heart, and good-natured bravado as she takes all the shame out of post-party remorse), and “Watering Roses” (an intensely vulnerable track that captures the devastation of struggling to let go of a fading romance). 





Based in Nashville but raised in Colorado, Sophia Scott has blazed her own bold trail to Country stardom. With a rare gift for raw yet exquisitely detailed storytelling — and a one-of-a-kind sound infused with elements of Southern Rock, Pop, R&B, and Soul — the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has amassed over 106 MILLION career streams and drawn nearly ONE MILLION monthly listeners to date. Growing up in Boulder, she took up piano and guitar as a child and soon started composing songs of her own, then further developed her unforgettably candid songwriting voice upon kicking off her music career in Los Angeles. During her six years in L.A., Scott found early success with singles like 2018’s “White Fence” and 2019’s “Drink Too Much Wine” (both featured on coveted playlists like Spotify’s New Music Friday), but ultimately relocated to Nashville and immersed herself in sharpening her craft. A breakthrough year for Scott, 2021 brought such triumphs as opening for the Jonas Brothers, landing on an artists-to-watch list from People, and inking her record deal with EMPIRE Nashville. The fast-rising artist maintained that momentum throughout 2022, when she delivered her widely acclaimed debut EP One Of These Days — a six-song project that earned praise from American SongwriterE! NewsEntertainment Tonight, and CMT (who stated that “Nashville newcomer Sophia Scott proves she has a bright future ahead in the genre”) and explored such complex subjects as watching her loved ones struggle with addiction (on the fan-favorite “Side Effects”). Along with signing a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music and Ross Golan’s Unknown Music Publishing in 2022, Scott celebrated the release of her debut album BARSTOOL CONFESSIONS (EMPIRE) with her bucket list debut on the Grand Ole Opry.
