Many have said that he is well on his way to being one of the next big country superstars. His manager was able to get his music aired on BlastFM radio station owned by Bruce Jackson who says Jason has the talent needed to receive a recording contract with one of over 500 record labels which BlastFM has ties with.Bruce Jackson has said one of the most requested songs on the station is “Whole Lotta Honey”--an original.The way things are looking, Jason is headed for a very successful music career soon.

Who is your biggest influence? My biggest influence, not only in my life, but in my music I would have to say would be a guy that has put a spin on Country Music, but has not changed the format and has stayed TRUE to, not only to the roots of real Country Music, but to himself--a man who has his own voice who may have broke a few rules along the way. Once in an interview, I watched him explain how many times they turned him down and told him he would never make it in Country Music, but he kept working at his sound, learning his craft, and one day it all paid off. He was signed by a record label, and the rest is history. Some would say he could fall into the Country Outlaw Genre, but personally I don’t agree with that. He is a man who took a little Rock-n-Roll and Rhythm & Blues and put it all together with a style no one expected, but it worked, and that man is none other than Eric Church.
Where would you be without music? Without music, there’s no doubt in my mind I would be lost, and it’s hard to answer a question like this because I could never ever imagine music not being in my life; music soothes the soul and makes you happy, sad, laugh, and makes you cry. I was given a talent from God. When I put it out there and the fans reacted to it in a way that I never could've imagined, I knew it was my calling. There's only 5 things that matter to me, and that’s my kids, wife, my Salter Gann Universal Family, my Manager, and most of all the fans; without the fans I would be without music.
What made you decide to sign with SGU Promotions and Management? To make this long story short, over 6 years ago I was doing little recordings because I just like to sing, and then one day this lady messaged me on Facebook, introduced herself, and told me that she loves my music and asked if I would mind if she shared my music. Then she started saying more of who she is and where she’s from; we hit it off it was like a new friendship that turned into a lot more. We had gotten a lot closer through the years, she gave me advice, she critiques me, explained things to me that I didn’t know. Before I knew it, she became a really close friend! We found a lot about each other’s life and this relationship began to grow and grow and grow! A short while later, I asked her to be my manager. She had me meet a couple of goals first before would accept me, so I went after those goals headfirst! Once I reached my goals, she signed me just like she said she would. I was so excited! I was now going to have a manager and a real music career, and my whole life was about to change for the better. I got the contract, signed it, sent it back, and the rest is history. Mom even got me a Nomination for Country Single of the Year at the 2017 IndieVilleTV Awards in Nashville. We ended up winning that award! Never thought I would make it this far, but with mom I did! From here we are going to the top. I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else. Loyalty is a sacred thing, and I will be Loyal to mom till the day I die along with the rest of us artists in the SGU family. All of us are like family, and there is nothing like that anywhere I have ever seen. That’s what makes SGU so special to me and all of us.
What is your ultimate goal? Well that’s a tough one. Haha. But, my #1 Goal is to get to do what I do best for the rest of my life; the one thing I love and the one thing that gives me a high better than any drink or drug could ever give me, and that’s performing on stage singing along with that crowd singing my songs back to me. It don’t matter to me if it’s 20 people or 1000 people, I just want to do what I like doing for a living.
What is a fun fact, story, or quirk about you? Well I sing Purple Rain better then most I’m told, and I’ve even been told by many people when they tell their friends about me they say, "You gotta hear this guy!! Then, I’ll get up and sing it for everyone, and at the end of the song I’ll say, "Hmm, I bet y’all never saw that coming from a white guy with a cowboy hat! Hahaha. People roll with laughter and then come and tell me, "Damn, man, you've got some SOUL-- a little bit of Prince in you!" That's the greatest compliment I can ever get when it comes to music.
