Jackson Dean’s Dad Has Been His Biggest Supporter
When Jackson Dean was old enough to have a job, he was content to follow in his dad’s footsteps and work alongside him as a bricklayer.
Jackson didn’t mind the work, but his dad did everything he could to support and encourage Jackson to use his talent to pursue a career in music.
“I think he saw that I had a pretty good taste in what I wanted to do. He saw that I wasn’t up here to do ‘Hey girl’ songs. It was much bigger than that, and I think he saw that I could make a future out of it. And I think that he saw that it was something that I really loved. Cause nobody in my family had ever done anything like that before. Nobody. Nobody that we know has done anything like what I’m doing. But I can tell you for a fact he did not want me to be a bricklayer. If you ever get the chance to meet my dad, he’s fallin’ apart. His knees are shot, rotator cuff surgery twice, and carpal tunnel. His back is shot, and he doesn’t want that for us.”
Jackson just announced that he’ll release his “Live at the Ryman” album, featuring eight songs, including his latest single, “Fearless (Live at the Ryman)” on April 14th.
