Nashville singer/songwriter Jason White paid a visit to InCtrl Studios to talk with Steve, Andy, and Bo of the Shoot Your Television Podcast about his work and life. He even plays two songs, “Little Pieces of Plastic” and the unreleased “Little Old Me”.
Perhaps best known to the casual listener as the songwriter of Tim McGraw’s controversial hit Red Rag Top (2002), Jason has built a dedicated and strong following by being honest about the people and situations that he encounters. His music invokes emotional responses that, as evidenced by the questions and stories from Steve and the others, often become integral to the memories of the listener. In other words, Jason’s songs become part of the story.
Jason opened up about the losses as well as the victories. Events such as signing with Universal Records in the 90′s, then recording with producer John Simon only to have the album shelved by the label, are recalled in a manner that only time and experience affords. Recent personal losses and the tumult that informed past songwriting are balanced with humor and a positive outlook, such as his experience competing on Star Search years ago alongside his band the Janglers.
Many thanks to Jason White for taking the time to come in and hang out with us.
