Playing on stage at a very young age with bluegrass legends Vassar Clements, Chubby Wise and others, really set a course of direction for the way Jason Evans would live his life. Giving much credit to his Dad for teaching him his first guitar chords and getting him if front of large crowds.
In 2008 Jason moved to Nashville, TN to chase his dream. “Within 2 hours of hitting town I was at the top of the ASCAP Building meeting with the president and playing him songs on my acoustic guitar” recalls Jason. Jason ultimately became an ASCAP Artist and began writing with all the Nashville greats. Jason has played with artists such as Country Superstar Jake Owen, Michael Ray, Sounds of the Desert, Randy Travis, and more…
Declining many publishing deal offers, Jason chose to keep the rights to his songs in hopes that someday he could sing them himself on his own record. This dream came true in 2013 with the release of his debut full length LP, recording with his brother Matt Evans, titled Evans Brothers ‘ Country Until I Die ‘, which you can currently find on ITunes, Google Play, or Amazon Live.
“The Jason Evans Band is a collaboration of music that encompasses everything I’ve ever done in music. We play some older, more classical country songs, new country, outlaw country, bluegrass, classic/ southern rock, and originals. Our main goal is to entertain the crowd and play music that everyone loves and pushing our original music. Trust in God, Support Our Troops, and Stomp those Boots!!!
*If there were a town to harvest a guitarist for Jason Evans Band, it would be Lecanto, Florida. Chris Choto has shared a stage with acts such as LoCash, Michael Ray, and The Lacs. While building a reputation in Central Florida and Nashville for his songwriting, he established his presence as a musician and entertainer. This songwriting musician is as lyrical with his words as he is his guitar.
