When Jessica Nixon left east Tennessee to begin her new life in Nashville, her move was definitely our loss and Nashville’s gain. Fortunately for us, she gets back to this area whenever she can. She always seems happy to return to the places near her home to perform for us at area fairs and festivals. Jessica was part of our entertainment lineup on Saturday, May 21, 2016, at the Wayne Scott Strawberry Festival in Unicoi, Tenn.
After hearing Jessica’s music, you will find yourself asking ‘why haven’t we heard this girl on the radio?’. That is a question I’ve been asking for a very long time. She sings, she writes, and she performs. She knows how to keep her audience entertained, and it’s rather obvious she enjoys what she is dong as much as we enjoy watching her do it.
Take a minute to listen to some of the music on her website. “Put Out That Fire,” “This is Real,” “All the Way Mae,” and “You’ll Never Find” are all songs that we should be hearing on Top 40 Country Radio stations. You can also listen to this great music on SoundCloud. There is not a song on there that I don’t like. I think you will all agree with me. Head over to Spotify, too, where you will find more of Jessica’s music, including one of my favorite Jessica Nixon songs, “Drive”. Her music is on ReverbNation, too, so there are a lot of places you can listen to her music. And, remember, if you like what you’re hearing, you can always make it your own – head over to iTunes to find out what Jessica has available there.
Jessica has been singing since she was four-years-old. With all those years of practice and learning behind her, it is no surprise that she o= has opened for Linda Davis,, Dustin Lynch, Ty Herndon, Ricochet, Aaron Tippin, Shenandoah, Jamie O’Neal, and Bradley Gaskin. She performed at Bristol Motor Speedway in front of 125,000 race fans, opened the Tennessee General Assembly’s Senate session with the national Anthem (the day Steve Wariner received his resolution), performed with Jimmy fortune at several events with Tennessee’s Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, and has written music alongside other amazing songwriters including Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott.
Those of you in Northeast Tennessee, southwest Virginia and western North Carolina have another date to look forward to, as Jessica will again be on stage in our area when she performs at the Covered Bridge Festival in Elizabethton, Tenn., on June 11. I hope the rest of you will keep up with her tour schedule, and find a venue near you, where you will have the opportunity to see her live.
Going to leave you with a few more pictures from Saturday’s show, a few with Jessica and some fans after the show, and two (one above, one below) we wanted to share with all of you. Country’s Chatter was proud to be one of the sponsors of this year’s Wayne Scott Strawberry Festival in Unicoi. It was a fun event, with fantastic entertainment, and we were very happy to be a part of the event this year.
