“For me as an artist, and the way that I pursue my career, I want it to be very authentic to who I am,” shared Jackson. “I don’t go by a different name… what you see is what you get. I’m actually being authentic with my music and my career.” Jackson is an artist who also prides herself on being there for her family. “I’m very committed to being a good mom throughout the whole process,” added Jackson. “Part of my journey has been to be committed to this: I can be a good mom, and I can still be a good musician. I can do both!” This commitment is admirable and commendable for anyone on a journey to make their dreams a reality, as Jackson has set out on her roadmap to success for herself.

Having been trained to sing Opera at an early age, along with her training in musical theater, and music theory, Jackson admits her instrument is her voice. Having a gift for songwriting just adds to the elements that make up this talented artist’s musical background. Along with her innovative style on the guitar, as can be heard on “Texas Gold,” Jackson has a gift for creating beautiful lyrics. In the instance of “Texas Gold,” those lyrics capture the essence of a true love story between Billy Don Hampton and his wife, Jackie “Texas Gold” Hampton, who the song is named after. It’s an overwhelming tribute to the beautiful life of a strong woman captured through the inspiring storytelling of Jackson and her poignant lyrics along with her collaborations with Kenny Maines, Lloyd Maines, and Brian Maines.
