STAY HERE

Country music runs in Jason Eady’s blood. The Mississippi native, turned Texas transplant said on his website that there’s always a place for pop and he wants to keep the soulful sound alive. “It’s always the avenue out of adolescence and into the grown up world…. Someone’s got to keep it alive, to preserve that kind of sound.”

His latest album “AM Country Music” was released in April. Some of his other CDs include “When They Money’s All Gone”, “Wild Eyed Serenade” and “From Underneath The Old.” Get a chance to listen to this artist live at Schroeder Hall this weekend. Here’s a sneak peek.
