With both of his children now married, GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Scott Reeves (ex-Steve) has recently thrown himself wholeheartedly back into a host of projects. “People started reaching out and asking, ‘Whatever happened to Blue County?’” the actor/singer revealed to Soaps In Depth, referencing the band with whom he had several hits.
With new music already produced, the group readily embraced the idea of hitting the road again. Besides, Reeves added, “I love nothing better than to get on stage and perform our stuff live.” Their acoustic tour, called Population 2, will take them to the UK in April.

In between gigs, Reeves is busy with his family coffee business, Revival Roasting Company, which has several new offerings, some of which are named to honor his grandfather, Rex. “He instilled the passion in me when I was 5 years old,” the entrepreneur explained. “We pride ourselves on grade-one, single-origin coffees that are really unique.”
Having wrapped his stint on CMT’s NASHVILLE when the series concluded, Reeves will return to the screen in a new, country music-themed project this year: DOLLY PARTON’s HEARTSTRINGS, a Netflix anthology series in which each episode is named for one of the icon’s much-loved hits. In “Jolene,” “I’m a sly silver fox going through a mid-life crisis,” Reeves previewed of the flick. “He starts seeing [a singer whose name is] Jolene, who is played by Julianne Hough, unbeknownst to his super sweet wife, Willa, whose best friend is played by my dear friend, Kimberly Williams-Paisley.”
The actor also has some good news to share with soap fans. With wife Melissa Reeves living part-time in Los Angeles while playing DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Jennifer, he’s open to reprising his role on GH. “It would be interesting to see how prison affected Steve,” he proposes. And since his old on-screen flame is now happily married, “I would love nothing more than to go stir things up in Olivia’s perfect, stable life.”
