Scotts made their chart-topping album debut in 2008 while appearing on the reality television show Dansbandskampen. Founded in 1992 in Lidköping, Sweden, the band is comprised of Henrik Strömberg (vocals, guitar), Claes Linder (keyboards), Roberto Mårdstam (bass), and Per-Erik "Lillen" Tagesson (drums). While the band had been in existence for many years, it didn't experience any widespread success until 2008, when it appeared as a contestant on Dansbandskampen. Scotts competed well on the show and ended up finishing in second place behind winning band Larz-Kristerz. Around the time of the season finale of Dansbandskampen, Scotts released the chart-topping album På Vårt Sätt (2008) and the Top 30 hit single "Om Igen." In 2009 Scotts competed in the Swedish Melodifestivalen with their hit song "Jag Tror På Oss," and while the band failed to win the song contest, its second album, Längtan (2009), was another chart-topping hit.
