Kevin Jackson is a singer-songwriter with influences ranging from Merle Haggard to Metallica.
Kevin comes from a long line of musicians, from his great, great grandparents hosting Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys at their home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma on a regular basis, to His father who, as a bassist/songwriter, was part of the late 1980s and early 1990s Hair-Band/Arena Rock era. So, it only makes sense that Kevin's musical style is part traditional country and part 1980s - 1990s arena rock.
Being from the great state of Texas, Kevin also adds the "dirt road" element to everything he does. Kevin began down this road as the interim worship pastor at a very large church at the ripe old age of 19 yrs old.
Kevin has played shows with some great artist including Radney Foster, Colt Ford, Randy Rogers, Stoney Larue, Josh Ward, Curtis Grimes, Zane Williams, Koe Wetzel, Tyler Bryant, Deryl Dodd, JB and The Moonshine Band, Hillbilly Vegas, Rod Black, Wade Bowen, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Cody Canada, Shotgun Rider, William Clark Green and several others.
Brantley Gilbert, George Strait, Cody Jinks, Kris Kristofferson, Samm Riggs, and Chase Rice have all made a huge impact on Kevin's songs for his new Self-titled EP that includes the songs Back Home, I'm Gone, Kickin It, Every Move You Make, Gonna Wanna.

Kevin is extremely independent. His band is totally self-contained and capable of handling all aspects of his show production. He is surrounded by people with over 30 years of full event production from FOH sound, video, lighting, graphic arts, and television production.
Kevin is thankful to have friends like Curtis Grimes, Tom Perkins, David Adam Byrnes, and his father (Travis Jackson) who all have contributed their writing skills to help Kevin put together great songs that cross all kinds of musical boundaries and join together the best elements of Texas red-dirt lyrics, Nashville production, and arena rock guitars.
