Now a Nashville recording artist, Jason Bertrand originally came from a small, rural town in Illinois and attended Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. There he spent time working on a cover country band with reckless abandon and also discovered his calling of playing honest country music. The big break came when Jason got to work with legendary producer, Jimmy Johnson (Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Rolling Stones, Bob Seger) to create his first album, True, Original, American Country, released in July of 2011. Since then Jason & the Haymakers have been making more than hay by touring the country opening for major artists like Clint Black, Montgomery Gentry and Kenny Chesney, plus receiving considerable airplay for cuts such as, “Only in My Dreams” and “She Rides Horses.” Developing a well-deserved reputation for “putting the country back into country music,” Jason calls his album, “a collection of high-energy, beer drinking songs, and music that will pack the dance floor.” Come see for yourself, pardner.
