Jason McCoy (born August 27, 1970 in Minesing, Ontario) is a Canadian singer/songwriter who performs country music. McCoy is also one of the four members of the group The Road Hammers, which has released two studio albums, in addition to charting four singles in Canada and one in the United States. At around the age of 5, his family moved to Camrose, Alberta, returning three years later. "The cowboy culture really stuck with me. I just fell in love with the music. For some reason, as a little kid, I had some sort of connection with these guys who were singing about these depressing things," McCoy said, citing Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash to lesser known artists like Ed Bruce and Wynn Stewart.

"I just didn't have a voice for rock 'n' roll." Jason started playing guitar at age 7[1] and wrote his first song when he was 12[1]. In his teens, Jason owned a rock 'n' roll guitar and was partial to AC/DC. In the 1980s, he joined a band called Three Quarter Country, which performed at legions, Saturday night dances, and clubs in Barrie, Midland, Orillia and other small towns. Jason won a talent contest in Toronto in 1988, allowing him to travel to Nashville to record an album with Ray Griff[1]. He later signed with MCA Records in 1995. On May 1, 1999, he married his long time love, Terrine Barnes. McCoy is a third of the country-rock trio The Road Hammers, which also features musicians Clayton Bellamy and Chris Byrne.

While it seems the majority of his time is going towards The Road Hammers, he is still maintaining a solo career. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
