JADE EAGLESON comes to ATHENS
: Jade Eagleson has the kind of traditional sound that is the heart and soul of country music. Even at
23 years old, he has the unique ability to take you back in time to the glory days of Johnny Cash, George Jones and Randy Travis.
Jade, raised on his grandparents' farm in Ontario, worked alongside his father tending crops and livestock. Life may have occasionally lead him off the farm, it always brought him back. Even these days when he isn't playing his guitar you'll find him with shovel in hand.
Jade has been making music most of his life, but only considered country music as a career confronted with the harsh reality of how to save the family farm. Although he may have started playing in empty bars, he soon caught his break when he earned his way into the Emerging Artist Showcase for Canada's largest country music festival in 2017. Jade's sound stunned audiences easily separating him from the pack, which saw him take home top prize. Jade was immediately signed to Universal Music Canada. Jade's debut single âGot Your Name on Itâ was released in 2018 followed by âCount the Waysâ in 2019. Check out the songs and videos on www.jadeeagleson.com. You won't want to miss this show!
Opening for Jade will be local duo, Angie Halladay and Ted Brayton.
