This spring, Jason Eady released an epyonomous album via Thirty Tigers that has earned him the greatest acclaim of his career. While in the midst of a massive US tour and in anticpation for a showcase at AmericanaFest in Nashville on September 15, Eady is releasing a live performance video of “Black Jesus” from the new album.

I always say that this song is the most personal song that I didn’t write,” explains Eady. “I first heard Channing Wilson play it in a late night after hours song swap in Nashville a few years ago.  It’s a song that Channing wrote with Patrick Davis. As soon as I heard it I was blown away.”

“Not only is it a great song but I had a very similar experience when I was growing up. When I was 15 years old and learning how to play guitar, I started taking lessons from an old blues man in Mississippi named JC Cannon. Even though we played two different styles of music, it all connected. He taught me things about music that are still a very big part of what I do today. After the lessons were over, we would sit on his porch and talk for hours. It was a time that I’ve never forgotten and I always meant to write about it. When I heard Channing play the song I knew that he had said everything I wanted to say and in an incredibly well-crafted way. I’m very proud to have been able to record this song and have it on the album.

The self-titled album, his first in more than three years, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Chart and Heatseakers Chart, and peaked #15 on the Americana Radio Chart. Saving Country Music and Farce The Music named Jason Eady one of the best albums of 2017 so far.
