Heartaches and Love Letters

Jackson recorded his newest EP at the all-analog studio ‘Welcome to 1979’ in Nashville Tn.

“I wanted to create something different with this EP. I wanted to get back to the roots of music, and that’s why we decided to track on analog tape. These songs are real, passionate, and genuine. I did not want any pitch correction used on any song or instrument. We intended to capture the raw emotion of all the songs I wrote.”

Bobby Mckee and Jackson co-produced the EP and assembled a band that consisted of some of the best musicians in Nashville. Drums: Stan Saxon, Electric Guitar: Bobby Mckee, Bass: Micheal C. Steele, Organ & Piano: Billy Livsey, Acoustic Guitar: Ed Smoake, Steel Guitar: Smith Curry, Violin & Acoustic Guitar: Jackson Lawrence, Backing Vocals: Mike Rogers, Percussion: Cameron McClaren.

Available Lyrics

What Do You Say

Jump in my car let’s make our get away

Chase the sunset find our better day

Our dreams are here to stay 

Don’t worry bout tomorrow and what you can’t see

 As long as were together that’s all you’ll ever need

Baby take this chance with me 

 

Lets Get out of here, never come back

The rhythm of the road that’ll be our soundtrack.

 somewhere where only God knows our name 

What do ya say 

 

Tear off that rearview cause, we ain’t turning around. 

Until our feet touch new ground

Something different something new

Something that says me and you 

 

The streetlights of our hometown 

Are fading in the background 

We’re going to make a new start 

Oh yea we are

Lets Get out of here, never come back

The rhythm of the road that’ll be our soundtrack.

somewhere where only God knows our name

What do ya say

Love Letter

Just the other day, I found an old love letter

The page was torn, a little weathered 

Those words took me back, to a different place 

It’s been along time but I can still see her face 

 

Those days were long 

Nights were fast

Holding on to something that was never going last

I thought by now I could forget her

But damn these memories from an old love letter 

 

Graduation came too soon that may 

Life began to take us separate ways

You had to find yourself out in Colorado 

I thought about you everywhere I’d go

 

Those night were long 

Years went by fast 

Holding on to something that was never coming back 

I thought by now I could forget her

But damn these memories from an old love letter 

Heartache

I ain’t gonna sing you no love sick song 

We’ve past that point it’s been way too long 

I can’t tell where your heart lies 

I damn well know it’s not here with mine 

Don’t walk away, don’t hide

Just tell me why

 

Is it so, here with me

To make you leave 

All that we have 

All that we’ve made 

You’d throw it all away 

And leave, the heartache 

 

You just don’t seem to care anymore 

Every step is closer towards the door

Before you close it and say we’re through 

I need to hear it straight from you 

Don’t walk away don’t lie, 

Just tell me why

 

Is it so, here with me

To make you leave 

All that we have 

All that we’ve made 

You’d throw it all away 

And leave, the heartache 

 

It aint got to be this way

Just turn around and stay

Is it so, here with me

To make you leave

All that we have

All that we’ve made

You’d throw it all away

And leave, the heartache
