Bringing that same sense of adventure to his songwriting, Jackson writes both in- dependently and alongside the likes of Luke Dick and Casey Beathard. Following the release of his debut collection "Jackson Dean," Jackson continues to show people how real music can be with atmospheric, mu- sically forward album "Greenbroke" out now. Featured on the soundtrack for Netflix's "e Ice Road" and in an episode of Paramount Network's "Yellowstone," the stomping "Don't Come Lookin'" made its mark as his first single at country radio.
