Jade Jack will perform on the country stage at this years’ festival.
“Country music couldn’t come more naturally to Jade Jack, her love for country fiddles and cryin’ steel guitars began as soon as she was born. Jade’s earliest photos include her with steel guitar greats such as “Papa Moon” (Ralph Mooney), Speedy West, Jirnmie Day, Jody Sanders, Buddy Emmons and Junior Knight to name a few.
Jade began taking classical violin lessons at age 4, and credits her grandparents with giving her that opportunity.
As her single mom worked to complete her college degree, private music lessons were a luxury that was not within their reach. But most every Saturday, she would settle into the backseat of her grandma’s Suburban, tiny fiddle case in hand, and make the hour drive into Sugarland, where her lessons took place.
When Jade’s aunt Dottie Jack recorded a CD, Jade made a guest appearance playing alongside Texas Country Great, Bobby Flores. Bobby then became Jade’s fiddle instructor. She began making appearances at local Opry Shows with her aunt, Dottie Jack.
Jade began work on her first CD in Aug. 2009 in Nashville, TN and had it finished just in time for a trip to Branson, MO. Jade was invited by Leona Williams to be a guest on a series of shows that were held in Oct. 2009 in Branson, MO at Silver Dollar City. This would be Jade’s first show to introduce her newly finished CD, properly entitled “Growin’ Up Country”. She has since done numerous shows with Leona, including two appearances on the Midnight Jamboree, Johnny Bush’s 75th Birthday Bash at Willie’s Place, Heart of Texas
Records’ Music Festival, a benefit show in the town Jade lived in for most of her life before moving to Bastrop, and several others.
The future is bright for this blue-eyed country girl. While most teenagers are unsure what their future holds, Jade knows this for sure: No matter what the future may hold, she’ll still be holdin’ her fiddle. It’s true what they say: “big things come in small packages”. And that’s true, my friends...this pint-size fiddler packs a big country sound!”
