Young up and coming country singer, from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and currently a student at County High (How 'bout them WILDCATS!) did his first big radio interview today.


His appearance was piped through the intercom system at County High this morning (LOVE THE SUPPORT FROM HIS TEACHERS AND FELLOW STUDENTS).

This young Alabama-bred country singer, 15, is getting lots of attention online.

Actor John Schneider (Bo Duke from Dukes Of Hazzard) liked his music so much, he agreed to a duet.

Same with the granddaughter of legend, Loretta Lynn, Taylor Lynn who also sang with Jackson.

This led to a crazy story that Jackson tells BELOW.

Jackson will be releasing his debut full-length project this Summer on any of the platforms you use to download music.

He will also be performing @The Bama Theatre on March 29 with his full band, also made up of local young musicians.

This is the kind of thing that we all could say one day, "I saw him when he was just starting out" after he wins Entertainer Of The Year for the 3rd time.

You gotta love the story involving legendary singer John Anderson, who duets with Jackson on his new single "Wild & Blue", after he realized he would be late to County High School.

Who wrote the note for Jackson explaining why he was late to class?

Yes, that's right, John Anderson asked County High faculty to excuse him for being late! They did. Thanks John Anderson for being so cool.
