Curb Singer/Songwriter Premiered His Second Summer Single With Taste Of Country Yesterday (7/18)
Curb Records’ Jackson Michelson released his second single of the summer “Stay Over” today. Penned by Michelson, Jeff Pardo (Ben Rector, Francesca Battistelli) and Molly Reed Grayson (Danielle Bradbery, Marie Osmond), and co-produced by Pardo and Jim Ed Norman (Garth Brooks, Dylan Scott), the smoldering track is now available to purchase and stream on all digital platforms. “Stay Over” premiered exclusively with Taste of Country yesterday, who called it a “mid-tempo song [that] presents a lush sonic backdrop augmented by an insistent beat.”
“‘Stay Over’ is about an on-again, off-again relationship filled with passion,” Michelson told Taste of Country. “Sometimes the relationship is meant to be, but the timing just isn’t right. I wanted to write a song from that vulnerable point of view.”
“Stay Over” follows Michelson’s most recent single and video “One At A Time,” which released June 7. The video for “One At A Time” has already seen over 105,000 views, and the track has been added to YouTube Music’s Country’s New Crop playlist, as well as Spotify’s New Boots, Wild Country and Pop-Co playlists.
After years on the road averaging over 200 shows per year, the Portland, Oregon native released SiriusXM The Highway hit, “The Good Life” – which ultimately lead to a record deal with Curb. Michelson spent much of the past year writing for his upcoming projects. “I knew I needed to give my writing the same attention I’d given the road for the past several years.” Collaborating with Ebach, GRAMMY nominee Jeff Pardo and Curb’s Jim Ed Norman for production, his new music is a testament to his hard work, continued dedication to fans and spot as one of country music’s most anticipated up-and-comers.
ABOUT JACKSON MICHELSON:
Curb Records’ Jackson Michelson previous releases and powerful arrangements might threaten to shut some singers out, but it’s just not the case for the energetic singer/songwriter who’s praised for “staying atop the beat to drive it through to the end.” (Taste of Country) The promising rising star grew up in the “Grass Seed Capital of the World,” Corvallis, Oregon, listening to the sounds of his mother’s favorite country songs and father’s soul. Always looking up to his older brother toured as a Christian artist, Michelson joined him on the road to help sell merch while taking everything in and making a to do list all his own. After returning home with an undeniable fire lit inside of him, Michelson started playing in bands throughout his hometown while writing songs that balanced high-energy hooks with good natured storylines. Songs like “The Good Life” have been embraced by many and earned the support of SiriusXM’s The Highway, which helped Michelson reach new fans across the country. Before he knew it, his schedule was filled with over 200 shows a year including opening slots for Blake Shelton, Lee Brice, Frankie Ballard and more. Looking ahead, Michelson is excited for the next chapter of his ‘good life’ – one he’s built himself, show by show and song by song – with new cities to play, songs to be written and opportunities to explore.
