Just south of Muscle Shoals in the small town of Frog Pond, Alabama, Jarred Pierce grew up in the country. Surrounded by music history and a family known for their musical talent, he was introduced to musicianship at an early age. “I can remember my first Merle haggard concert,” Jarred says. “When I left that night I was inspired by him to write my own songs and stories.” He learned to play guitar at 8 years old, and by fifteen he was in a band performing festivals and the local fair circuit, and then set out playing his own songs in acoustic shows. That’s when Jarred really fell in love with writing and performing his own material.
Speaking on his love of country music, Jarred says, “I think for me it was obvious. I grew up in the country. I am a hunter and an avid fisherman. Something about the way a country music song told a story spoke right to my heart. I could relate.”
Having built an impressive regional fan base, Jarred made the move to Nashville and signed with Press Management Group and Red Ridge Entertainment, with whom he’s recorded his first record. Featuring several of his own songs as well as songs from well known Nashville songwriters Sam Brooker (of Sam and Ruby) and Jesse Rice (Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise”), the record includes first single “It’s Going Down.” The single and the record are both available now.
