“The Ryman is hallowed ground; it had been a bucket list item for me to take that stage. It was a blessing not only playing there, but also capturing that moment in a way I can revisit again and again,” said Jackson Dean. “I love that I can share that memory and the energy of that crowd with the rest of the world. I hope the folks listening are transported to those pews and can feel the five of us giving it our all— no click, no tracks—just raw noise, running on pure adrenaline.”
“Fearless (Live At The Ryman)” is the latest version of his sophomore single—the original version appeared on his critically acclaimed debut album, Greenbroke, and quickly became a fan-favorite during live shows. Having recorded the initial version in his late teens, he and producer Luke Dick recently re-recorded the track to reflect his vocal maturity and his high-energy live performances. The rerecord, “Fearless (The Echo)” was the Most Added upon its impact on Country radio and is currently climbing through the charts. The track was lauded by Billboard as “an honest, desperate, manly expression of the life-changing power of his mate” saying “the verses harness a Waylon Jennings-like gruffness in his lower range while the chorus showcases a Chris Cornell-ish ferocity in Dean’s upper reaches.”
In November, “Don’t Come Lookin’” became the fastest debut to reach No. 1 on Country Aircheck’s chart for the year – making Dean the youngest male in not just Aircheck, but Radio & Records’ history to top the chart with their very first single. The song started out its radio journey crowning Dean as the highest debuting new artist on the charts since 2015 and concluded with earning a nomination for a CMT Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year nominee and crowning Dean as the topmost heard new artist on the Country Aircheck chart for 2022. The gritty anthem for restless spirits was also featured on Netflix’s The Ice Road soundtrack and Paramount Network’s Yellowstone, appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and included in several lists as one of the Best County Songs of 2022 (Billboard, Taste of Country, etc.).
