Something changed for young Jason when he heard George Jones & Tammy Wynette’s ‘Golden Ring’ coming from the radio in the barn one morning, across the prairie wind to a nearby thoughtful, hard-working young man who fell in love with music then and there. From then on, Jason was going to be a musician, and he knew it there and then. ~ Jason Ringenberg ~ retrieved November 20, 2013 ©

Jason & the Scorchers

Jason & the Scorchers, originally Jason & the Nashville Scorchers, are a cowpunk/country-rock band formed in 1981 and led by singer/songwriter Jason Ringenberg. With a sound that straddles hard rock, punk rock and country music, Jason and the Scorchers are noted for their energetic live performances, and have earned strong reviews from critics: Mark Deming, who declared they “blazed a trail for the cowpunk and alt-country movements that followed in their wake.” Jason and the Scorchers continue to maintain a loyal cult following around the world. ~ Wikipedia: Jason & the Scorchers ~ retrieved April 24, 2014 © Wikipedia
