“I have more directing credits under my belt the past five years than acting credits,” says Barry Scott.

That’s saying something, given that Scott is arguably Nashville’s finest actor and clearly Music City’s highest-profiled theatrical performer nationally. Those stentorian promotions you hear coming out of the television during ESPN’s NBA broadcasts are just one of Scott’s numerous gigs
