Currently, this independent artist is working on a country album to be released this spring. As a vocalist who was trained in opera, Jackson admits it was a challenge deciding which genre to focus on. “I love country music. Since moving to Texas, I feel that it has definitely influenced me, and I’m kind of settling into where I was always meant to be, which for me is country music. I love the old, old stuff, like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton,” shared Hannah Jackson. “I like taking that influence because I tend to also want to do the corky Zooey Deschanel, Ingrid Michaelson kind of thing, and putting that together. I can do the big belt stuff. I can do the big, powerful numbers.” Jackson went on to share that her next single is called “Cowboy.” This song is a very Carrie Underwood-esque, gut-busting, huge country song she is excited to release. She went on to mention they are also working on the video for the single, and her producer is predicting a hit! “It’s an old-meets-new-country,” said Jackson.

Hannah Jackson is a role model for creating your own path to your dreams without comprising the things that are important to you in life, such as your family. This wife and mother is an inspiration and a tribute to knowing you can have it all. She’s an artist that can take you back in time with her music, reminiscent of old school country nostalgia, then transport you to a future mixed in with hints of opera, infused with a little bit of jazz, all wrapped up in a nice country ballad that resonates with life’s true experiences. “It’s like putting a beautiful blanket on everybody. That’s my goal, to let people feel they can just escape for a minute, get away from the troubles of the world, and the ups and down, and just spend some time being together on the journey and the path,” shared Jackson. “To spend some time in music, feel filled up with love and light and enough energy to get through the next day. That’s really what I feel my purpose is and why I do it.”
