Honky Tonker Jason Green will be playing at the Legendary Buffalo Chip, Aug. 4 – 11 during the 2007 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Jason Green is one of a very few artists in country music history who have earned the title, “Honky Tonker.” It’s a hard name to earn in the music business. George Jones, Merle Haggard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Gretchen Wilson have all earned it for their hard- driving genre and comes with the up tempo, type of feel good music that the Sturgis Rally crowd craves.
“Jason Green just makes you feel good all over, through and through, and his music makes you want to drive a fast car, drink a margarita, and dance in a country bar,” says George Harris Sr. Music Editor for go.com the Disney Music Channel.
“Rock In My Cowboy Boots,” which debuted in the Billboard charts just before the freeze for Christmas music is worth the time and effort to the country music audience. The song debuted #1 in most college markets and has already topped the Billboard Top 150 radio survey after just a few weeks of airplay. After years of working hard, it would appear that Jason Green belongs to that country club of artists that have the same flair for an up tempo song as Mickey Gilley and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Green who credits his love of country music to long-time Buffalo Chip crowd favorites Lynyrd Skynyrd among others. His music is sure to become a staple of Sturgis Rally biker music.
Obtaining the right songs from the right people is a must in the music business. Green was able to get songs from the Warner Brothers writing team of Gretchen Wilson and John Rich, Duane Blackwell & Bud Lee (Friends In Low Places) and Tom Shapiro (SONY/ATV Music) for his first sessions with some of Nashville’s most famous musicians. “It’s all about the song in the city of Nashville,” Green says. I have admired Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, and Kenny Chesney for their ability to get the right songs and get them out at the right time. I feel like the songs on my album are some of the greatest songs I’ve ever heard in country music. The writers worked very hard to get the type of song that I like to sing as an artist and my producer, Robert Metzgar took a lot of time to pick the right songs for the album. “ I went through several hundred songs before I got comfortable with the songs that are on my album.”
