Country Veteran Jason Eady Gives Us A Taste Of His New Album With "Way Down In Mississippi"

If there is one thing we love, it is new music!

Brandon Aguilar

Friday, the Mississippi-born, Texas-based singer, songwriter and guitarist Jason Eady announced his ninth studio album Mississippi and released the album opener “Way Down In Mississippi.” The album, produced by the Band of Heathens’ Gordy Quist, will be released on August 11 and is now available for pre-order via Eady’s official website or by signing up for the Jason Eady Music Club.

The toe tappin' tune is a straightforward feel good tune and allows Jason to shine without all the "fluff." The southern native pays tribute to the simple pleasures that his home state has to offer! Infused with Mississippi soul, tender harmonies and an overall cheerful love letter to his own musical journey.

"The idea for this album started the day that I finished my last album To The Passage of Time. Gordy Quist, the producer of that album, asked what I wanted to do next...", Jason said in a press release.

"Mississippi is an album I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. I’ve always been a lyrics first kind of writer, but this time around it’s all about the sound. Growing up in Mississippi, I was raised around that groove centered music and it’s always been a very big part of what I do. I’ve usually had at least one song on each album that touched on this sound, but this time I went all in. This was a fun album to write because I completely shifted gears and let the music decide what the words were going to be. The words had to fit the music, which is the opposite of my usual process, " he continued.

The album is sure to be full of Mississippi git and Texas soul! In the meantime, you can check out Jason on the below tour dates!
