He was always singing around the house. His love for singing continued to grow until he finally began to share his talent with family and friends at the age of fifteen. He still loves singing at family gatherings and with his father. Jason has been inspired by many of country music greats.
Singers such as: Merle Haggard, Hank Williams Jr. and Vern Gosdin all have influenced his song style and selection. While Jason was growing up, his father taught him how to play rhythm guitar. His dad played the guitar in bands around Northeast Arkansas until last year when he started playing for Jason.
Jason could always be found somewhere in the wings during jam sessions and gigs. Jason Green is one of a very few artists in country music history that have earned the title, "Honky Tonker." That's a hard name to earn in the music business. Jason Green, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Gretchen Wilson have all earned that name for their hard driving genre of country music that leaves the ballads and slow songs on the back side of the record. These artists release the up tempo, type of feel good music when you need a song to perk up your whole attitude and make a big difference in the feelings you have for a world saturated with computers, cell phones, and pagers.
"Jason Green just makes you feel good all over, through and through. 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. CDX 408 features the current group of Honky Tonkers in country music like the graduating class for the 2007 CRB radio seminar. Jason Green, Gary Allan, Jimmy Buffett, Gretchen Wilson and John Rich, Lee Ann Womack, George Jones & Merle Haggard are joined by the Blytheville, Arkansas native in an all out assault on radio stations that love to play up tempo honky tonk music during drive time.
"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's album is in stores now and is distributed nationally by the big four, Select-O-Hits, Trans World Entertainment, Handleman, and Anderson. Sales of the new album have taken off with a new year of touring and radio station promos ahead.
