Modern country band The Jackson Line have released the second single, entitled Don’t Wait, from their Debut EP. Don’t Wait is an uplifting song which encourages the listener to grab life with both hands, rather than waiting for things to be perfect.
“This song came after a period of big change in my life; scary things that when I broke them down and actually experienced them, weren’t so scary after all,” explains Keith Porter, singer and pianist with the band. “It made us want to write a tune about living in the moment, not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.”
The song was immediately included on Apple Music’s ‘Country Wide’ playlist alongside artists such as Carrie Underwood, Brett Young and Ward Thomas. The playlist showcases the brightest country stars from across the globe.
The first single from the EP, You Are Mine, has so far been streamed over 70,000 times.
Next up for the band is a performance at debut country music festival, Dixie Fields, on Saturday 13 July, which they are all incredibly excited about.
“We’ve been preparing for this gig for a long time. It’s an honour to be on the same bill as artists like Ward Thomas and Lauren Alaina, and we’re proud and excited to be involved in the the first ever Dixie Fields Festival,” says Porter.
With storytelling, harmonies and guitars at the heart of what they do, The Jackson Line are comfortable with the tag of ‘modern country band’, but with each member bringing a wide range of differing influences to the table, they create thoughtful, melodic songs which capture the essence of country while allowing their other influences to permeate.
The band are made up of singer/pianist Keith Porter, singer/guitarist Jamie Cook, and guitarist Jim Cross.
Don’t Wait, The Jackson Line’s Debut EP, was released in September 2018 across multiple digital music platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play Music.
