Believe it or not, Walmart FLW Tour pros actually do have some hobbies outside of fishing. While the season-long grind of a professional bass-fishing career obviously takes its toll on angler’s ability to participate in an extensive list of extracurricular activities, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes pro Dave Lefebre has at least managed to find a little time to fit in one of his main passions into his busy schedule – playing drums whenever he gets the chance.
And that passion was on full display this past Sunday where Lefebre was able to participate as a stand-in drummer for country music singer Dylan Scott’s band, which played on the final day of the Walmart FLW Tour event at Beaver Lake in Rogers, Ark.
“I first got to play with Dylan Scott Saturday night at George’s Majestic Lounge – it was a really cool place. I really had a good time and I can’t thank Dylan and his band enough for giving me the opportunity to play with them. It wound up being a great warm up for Sunday as well.
“Then the next day, before weigh-in, I got to play two songs with the band again and that was really fun,” Lefebre continued. “Honestly, I’ll never forget it. Playing music is really my other passion in life.”

One of the great aspects of professional fishing is the influx of new talent each year. The 2012 season saw anglers such as Jacob Wheeler and Clent Davis step to the forefront and many expect rookie pros Brandon McMillan and Casey Martin to follow suit. One certainty in the new talent department for 2013 is Dylan Scott.
Scott however, isn’t your typical newbie. In fact, he’s not even a pro angler; he’s an up-and-coming country music artist. The 22-year-old Scott will be performing live at the final five Walmart FLW Tour stops and the Forrest Wood Cup. He’ll be making a cameo appearance at the season opener on Lake Okeechobee to acquaint with the stage/equipment and perhaps test the vocals by bellowing a national anthem or two. Scott is the latest from a pipeline of country music stars who have partnered with FLW, including Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Craig Morgan, Blake Shelton and Tracy Byrd, among others.
While Scott is new to the FLW Tour, he’s no stranger to the outdoors. He grew up in rural northeast Louisiana in the tiny town of Bastrop.
Nashville, TN (January 18, 2013) – FLW, the world’s premier tournament fishing organization, announced today that country music artist Dylan Scott will tour with and perform at multiple Walmart FLW Tour events in 2013.
A 22-year-old native of Bastrop, La., Scott is signed to Sidewalk Records in Nashville. He is currently putting the finishing touches on his debut album with famed producer Jim Ed Norman, and his first single, “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy” is scheduled to be released to radio in Spring 2013.
