WATCH: Action-Filled 1800’s Epic“Cinematic Mini-Movie” for
“Fearless (The Echo)”
“If you haven’t given Jackson Dean a listen, it’s time to get going”
NASHVILLE, TN (April 7, 2023)—After a busy week that included his CMT Music Awards debut and the massive CMT premiere of his epic video for “Fearless (The Echo),” Jackson Dean today releases another track from his upcoming Live At the Ryman album “Wings (Live At The Ryman).” The ethereal track with airy yet poignant vocals finds the thoughtful talent yearning for a freedom that only comes from the skies. Written by Dean and Park Chisolm, “Wings,” with its almost spiritual nature, finds the dreamer caught somewhere between running toward a euphoric unrestrained feeling and away from the things that drag us down.
Live At the Ryman, due next Friday (April 14) via Big Machine Records, is the eight-song set from his debut at the iconic Ryman Auditorium in October of 2022. The album captures the vigor, stage savvy and raw energy of Dean’s live show, with a little extra magic, courtesy of the Mother Church. In addition to live versions of songs from his critically acclaimed debut album, Greenbroke, (to the delight of the many fans who have seen the reigning MusicRow Breakout Artist of the Year live and have been clamoring for it) the collection will debut the standout track “Heavens To Betsy” as well as the other unreleased show staple Dean wrote with his longtime band members, “1971.”
“Wings (Live At The Ryman),” is the second track from the album that has been released with “Fearless (Live At The Ryman” already available. “Fearless (The Echo)” is Dean’s current single climbing through the Country radio charts. The “sensation-in-the-making” debuted the “music video worthy of the silver screen” (American Songwriter) on CMT on Monday, which stars his own brother, sister-in-law and niece—adding additional layers of meaning to the video and raising the question—are the characters in the story his family too? 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”—the video makes the meaning of the song come to life and places Dean in visions of an 1863 odyssey that shows the true lengths one will go to for the ones they love.
