JONATHAN JACKSON & CHARLES ESTEN: GREAT KICK OFF TO LIVE MUSIC AT JACK AND JAMESON'S!



What a treat, getting to see Jonathan Jackson and Charles Esten play a special acoustic show at Jonathan's new restaurant, Jack & Jameson's in Franklin. This was the first (of many to come) musical events at the restaurant, and boy did they kick things off in style! Jackson welcomed everyone, stating his intentions were to create a nice family friendly restaurant, with good live music. The atmosphere is very homey, and the crew treats you like friends. The food is good ole Southern American fare with decent prices. I had their All American burger and it was excellent. Jackson was joined onstage by friends Charles Esten and Colin Linley (Deacon's guitar player on Nashville).



Jonathan Jackson always puts on a good show. He's got a great voice, and seeing him acoustic only showcased it further.  His songs have a religious influence with a rock edge, making for a unique style. Jackson played all originals for the crowd tonight, some from his band Enation. One of the highlights of the night for me was a song he said he'd only performed once before, called "Sacred Rage".  Pretty and haunting all the same, it was a nice tune.



Charles Esten is pure fun to watch, his charisma draws everyone in. He's always smiling, telling stories, and rocking out. At one point  Esten played a new drinking song. He introduced it by saying "Everyone has this bar which is really a dump with crappy food, definitely not Jack and Jameson's". 



As the show drew to an end  Jonathan requested Charles perform "A Life That's Good". Jonathan sang backup, and what better to end the show than hearing the two perform together a song Nashville fans know and love.


As an added treat fans got the opportunity to meet and greet with the artists after the show. They posed for photos and signed autographs for every last fan that wanted one. Their characters, Avery and Deacon may not always be the greatest of guys. In real life, Jonathan Jackson and Charles Esten are two of the most down to earth, nicest guys you'll meet.  You can bet I'll continue to support them.
