Jason Brown to sing at Warren Cultural Center

Published: Wednesday, June 11, 2014 11:01 a.m. CST

GREENFIELD — Popular country singer Jason Brown takes the stage 7 p.m. June 28 at Warren Cultural Center in Greenfield. With his roots in Iowa, flavored by time in Texas and Nashville, Brown’s pure vocals deliver glimpses of his life and love of country music.

Singer/songwriter Brendan McKnight will open for Brown.

Brown was born and raised in Pella. At the age of 4, Jason started singing in church. His early years were influenced by country artists such as Alabama, Jim Reeves, Kenny Rogers, Ronnie Milsap, and especially George Strait, who remains his idol.

After several years in Corpus Christi, Texas, Brown moved back to Pleasantville when he was 17. During his sophomore year in high school, he started his first band, Country Persuasion, and has been pursuing music ever since. He’s played the Iowa State Fair, Country Bash and The Blast. He’s opened for Alan Jackson, Neal McCoy, Clay Walker and others.

Now Brown splits his time between Iowa and Nashville, working on his writing skills. His songs draw on his down-to-earth experience, from working on his father’s farm to driving a tractor-trailer (and a tour bus).

“Working with my hands and operating equipment keeps my mind working and keeps things real for me,” Brown said. “That’s when it seems I come up with my best songs and ideas.”

Brown’s website is jasonbrowncountry.com, and his music can also be found on YouTube.

Tickets for the show are on sale now at Ed & Eva’s store, 154 Public Square, Greenfield, call 641-743-2566 or go online at warrenculturalcenter.com. All seats are $15 for the show. Beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks will be available.

The concert is sponsored by KSIB Creston Radio, the Freedom Rock and Rardin Family Chiropractic.
