Happy Birthday Jack Scott

Jack Scott was born "Giovanni Dominico Scafone Jr" January 24th in 1936.  When he was 10, his family moved from Windsor, Ontario, Canada to Hazel Park, MI which is a suburb of Detroit.  As a teenager, he started performing as "Jack Scott".  His earlier recordings were more rockabilly while he later developed into a more country style.  His biggest songs include "Leroy", "My True Love", "The Way I Walk", "Burning Bridges", "Geraldine", "What In The World's Come Over You" among others.  In 2015, Jack released his first new album in over 50 years titled Way To Survive!
