About John Eason
John is a small town Father, Veteran, and Gypsy brought up on gospel and country music. He was born in the small town of Minden, Louisiana, and grew up in Cotton Valley, raised on good manners, good food, and good music. Before venturing into the music industry, he pursued another passion of his as a chef. He attended culinary school and worked in the food industry, which led him to create his own BBQ sauce, Renegade BBQ, and opening his own bakery.
After losing the bakery in hurricane Katrina, John spent 8 years in the Air Force, where he did 5 overseas deployments. As a result, he has PTSD, which he draws inspiration from in his original music. One of his first releases, "Gun From My Hands," is about the invisible scars he carries from it. He hopes to use his platform to raise awareness for PTSD and help others who suffer from it.
When he decided it was time to move to Nashville and pursue his music career, he sold everything he owned and packed what was left in a $750 pickup truck and hasn't looked back since. He pours out music from his soul in hopes it connects with the people who need it. Some folks call his music Country, some call it Outlaw Country, and some call it Southern Rock. He calls it real, and that’s the kind of music he wants to make!
