Jason Lee Wilson "Big Gun" and Another Hole in the Wall
Live Smokehouse Performer, Live music every Friday & Saturday 7pm
Jason Lee Wilson:
Scots-Irish, German, Swiss, Italian and Cherokee, no one is more American in spirit, word, or pedigree. Listening to his endless compositions, it is plain to see Jason Lee Wilson, born and raised in the hill country of southeast Tennessee, has stayed true to his roots. He has penned endless songs romanticizing the history and tradition of his own life, lives of his contemporaries and those long since past. In 1998, He formed the Cumberland Runners, a high energy rockabilly act that was to be the soundtrack for a growing car culture following in the Middle and East Tennessee, North Georgia, and North Alabama area. Jason Lee can still be found fronting the band at large events all over the South. In 2004, the Cumberland Runners released an album of 14 tracks all of which were Wilson originals, with the exception of the Robert Mitchum tune, "Ballad of Thunder Road". He has such a diverse range of vocal style and dynamics that it has been likened to Dwight Yoakam, Johnny Cash, Ricky Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot and Jim Morrison to name a few.
One thing remains the same. He is unmistakeably a true balladeer from the Southern Highlands of North America who sings what he knows. Perhaps, It was that which caught the attention of a Rhythm Bomb Records executive. In 2007, backed in the studio by master musicians and labelmates, the Round Up Boys, Jason Lee Wilson recorded a new album for the label. Entitled "High Country", it was released in May of the same year and has risen in popularity both online and in broadband.
