“One to Watch” by Amazon Music, CMT, Country Radio Seminar, Pandora, Spotify and MorePresented with No. 1 Plaque Ahead of Packed Show at The Basement East
Surprises Fans with Special Guests Luke Dick and Johnathan Sherwood
Proving he is indeed “one to watch,” Jackson Dean delivered a dynamic and intensely free spirited 90-minute set that left the wall-to-wall crowd spellbound Thursday night (1/19) and today his sophomore single “Fearless (The Echo)” impacted Country radio to become the No. 1 Most Added of the week.
Selling out his first headlining show for Nashville, the quickly-ascending breakout took the stage at The Basement East and treated the locked in crowd to a mix of fan favorites from his debut album Greenbroke as well as eight unreleased songs. Tightening his grip on the crowd with each fearlessly sung note, the hypnotizing performance was equal parts rocking, gritty and tender and “left the crowd completely transfixed” (Tennessean), effectively taming The Beast.
Prior to taking the stage, the Dean was presented with a plaque for his history-making No. 1 debut single, “Don’t Come Lookin’” which cemented him as the youngest male in not just Aircheck, but Radio & Records’ chart history to land a No. 1 with their very first single and declared Dean as the top most heard new artist on Country Aircheck chart for 2022. Later, his producer and fellow songwriter, Luke Dick made a surprise appearance and joined the young talent to perform the hit.
Today, his follow up single garnered an impressive 69 first-week adds at Country radio, making “Fearless (The Echo)” the No. 1 Most Added for the week. The song is already getting praise for Dean’s soaring vocals and raw spirit, with Billboard saying “the verses harness a Waylon Jennings-like gruffness in his lower range while the chorus showcases a Chris Cornell-ish ferocity in Dean’s upper reaches” and calls it “an honest, desperate, manly expression of the life-changing power of his mate.”
Starting the year off strong with several headlining shows, as well as his second Grand Ole Opry appearance on February 3, Jackson will join Blake Shelton and Carly Pearce on the Back to the Honky Tonk Tour this February and has dates with Eric Church and Parker McCollum later this year.

ABOUT JACKSON DEAN:
Fast-rising Country singer/songwriter Jackson Dean is quickly earning a reputation for his old school, gritty, lyric-driven, outlaw style of Country following a breakout year that landed him on Pandora’s Ten for 2023 (all genre), Spotify’s Hot Country Artists to Watch 2023, the CMT Listen Up class of 2023, CRS New Faces 2023, Amazon Music’s 2023 Breakthrough Artists to Watch: Country Class as well as a slew of other artist to watch lists. Mature beyond his years, Jackson opted to move out to a cinderblock, concrete floor, one-room shack on the back of his grandfather’s property with no heat and no plumbing at just 18 years old. An adventurous and carefree spirit, the 22-year-old multi-instrumentalist, is also an old soul and skilled artisan whose pastimes include making leather goods, wood-burned art and disappearing into the woods to sleep under the stars. Bringing that same sense of adventure and downhome vibe to his songwriting, the “modern-day Country rambler” (Taste of Country) burst on the scene, showing people how real music can be with his atmospheric, musically-forward debut album Greenbroke (out now via Big Machine Records). The Maryland native’s single, “Don’t Come Lookin’” was the fastest debut to reach No. 1 in 2022 and cemented Jackson as the youngest solo male Country artist to reach the top of the charts with a debut. Landing spots on the Billboard Hot 100, the soundtrack for Netflix’s The Ice Roadand a John Dutton scene in Yellowstone, the song 80 million streams. Following an early career of local performances in his hometown, Jackson has joined bills with superstar acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brantley Gilbert, Kane Brown, Jake Owen, Brooks & Dunn, Lee Brice, HARDY and Brothers Osborne and found himself on the bill for credible events like Austin City Limits and Stagecoach. The young talent will hit the road in 2023 with Blake Shelton and Carly Pearce for the Back to the Honky Tonk Tour at the top of the year and later on dates with Eric Church and Parker McCollum.
