Jason Helms Band Live At Fat Jacks Saturday Night [VIDEO]
The Jason Helms Band will be playing their Red Dirt brand of country Saturday Night at Fat Jacks in Texarkana.
Jason Helms is a singer-songwriter-guitarist with a knack for spinning tales of life and love, and razor-sharp, witty lyricism that will keep the listener finding new depth and meaning to the songs with each listen. A God-fearing father and devoted husband, Helms crafts his home and life experiences into heartfelt songs, infusing them with an honesty that is rarely seen today.
The songs produced here are infused with a realness that recalls hints of Bruce Robison, Steve Earle, and Jack Ingram. But also there is a sense of adventure musically, much like Ryan Adams and Counting Crows. You need not walk a mile in his shoes: listen long enough and you will feel each callous and blister, finding yourself wincing at each painful step and rejoicing in every triumph.
Since 2008, the band has shared the stage with such luminary artists as Bomshel, Wynonna Judd, Marshall Tucker Band, Pure Prairie League, Justin Moore, Tracy Byrd, Tracy Lawrence, Lee Ann Womack, Joe Nichols, Bruce Robison, Mark Chessnut, Reckless Kelly, Randy Rogers, Rio Grand, Rich O'Toole, Wes Jeans, Lance Lopez, Johnny Cooper, Brandon Jenkins, Kyle Bennet Band, Gene Watson, Colt Ford, Sunny Ledfurd, Stoney LaRue, and the legendary Merle Haggard
Not only will you get a chance to check out some great music, but you can also have some of the best food in town. Make sure to try out one of Fat Jacks signature dishes, like the seafood crepe, or their version of chicken quesadillas. Check out Jason and the band covering one of my all time favorite songs from Stoney Larue 'Oklahoma Breakdown'.
