At just 25 years of age, Jade Eagleson’s voice takes listeners back to the days of Johnny Cash, George Jones and Randy Travis, in that it’s unmistakably country.
In August 2017, Eagleson was crowned the winner of the Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist showcase, beating out a lengthy list of other talented artists. Following the victory, Jade signed with Universal Music and went on to record his debut single, “Got Your Name On It”. The song garnered over 23 million streams and peaked at #6 at Canadian Country Radio. Shortly after the song’s music video was released, Jade was featured as YouTube Trending’s ‘Artist On The Rise’ and appeared on the website’s homepage, which is the first time a Canadian-signed artist in any genre received such an honour. As a result, the music video for “Got Your Name On it” was streamed as much as half-a-million times in a 24-hour period and now has 5x more views than any other Canadian Country Music Video released in 2018.
Jade has since released his debut, self-titled EP containing four tracks, including two versions of the fan favourite, “Got Your Name On It”, his second single, “Count The Ways” and love song, “Still Gonna Be You”. In the Fall of 2018, Jade completed a 40+ day tour around Canada with fellow country musician, Gord Bamford.
