Odenton, Maryland native Jackson Dean isn’t like most of the other young male Country acts. Known for his old school, gritty style of Country, the 21-year-old songwriter has a raw knuckle approach. Following the release of his self-titled collection, Jackson’s debut album GREENBROKE, produced by Luke Dick, is set for release March 11.
Having been featured on Netflix’s The Ice Road soundtrack and Paramount Network’s Yellowstone, the swampy, stomping “Don’t Come Lookin’” heads to Country radio as his first single, impacting February 22
Mature beyond his years, Jackson has a daring and carefree spirit, having moved out at 18 years old to live in a cinderblock, concrete floor, one-room shack on the back of his grandfather’s property with no heat and no plumbing.
Selling out Maryland’s famed Ram’s Head and Union Jacks while still in high school, Jackson has joined bills over the past year with superstar acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert

Popular Portland-based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid style is a lifetime in the making.
Popular Portland-based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid style is a lifetime in the making. Nate began playing piano when he was only five, but the Taylor acoustic guitar given to him by his dad at age 14 became the instrument that has accompanied him everywhere and helped to lay the foundation for his musical career. That career has seen up to 300 shows a year for the last five years: from coffeehouses to mainstages, Nate has pleased audiences with his feel-good tunes and relatable lyrics. Nate has shared the stage with the likes of Old Dominion, Brett Young, Chris Janson, LoCash, Lonestar and many others and calls upon his influences of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and his big-band pianist grandfather while crafting his music.
His songs have received regular rotation radio play and won numerous awards, including 2015 Project Aloft national songwriting contest judged by industry professionals. A 25-city tour in 2016 took Nate and his music to new audiences, and it only gets bigger from there. Nate’s dream is to share his music with a wider national audience and to leave with his listeners a lasting impression of singable melodies and lyrics that, as Nate says, “Can feel were written just for them to find a glimmer of hope.” Nate’s released his most recent EP, Buzzin’, in 2019, which includes river floating, sun loving, summer song Luxury Floatt. The official music video for Luxury Float was featured by CMT and Spotify editorial playlists.
