Jackson Dean hits the road for the first time with headliner Blake Shelton on his Back To The Honky Tonk Tour, which kicks off tonight (Thursday, February 16th) in Lincoln, NE. Jackson is excited to share the bill with one of his musical heroes, not to mention the chance to get to meet Blake's pop star wife, Gwen Stefani.
Jackson tells us: “I’m excited to see Gwen. I mean, that’s pretty crazy. Like, 'Oh, Gwen’s here.' Wow! And I’m in the same room? No, it’s funny, one of the early songs that I learned playing guitar on was ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ and ‘Ole Red.’ But yeah, he’s been around as long as I’ve loved music. ‘Ole Red’ is one of the OG, OG country songs. But to get to go and play with him, I’m excited to see the show. I’m excited to see what they do this year. But yeah, it’s just one hell of an opportunity.”
The Back to the Honky Tonk Tour, which also features Carly Pearce, runs through March 25th where it wraps up in Buffalo, NY.
Jackson's latest single is called “Fearless (The Echo).”
