Jamie's new album All American Mutt debuts at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart!! Right in between John Prine and Dolly Parton, Jamie accomplished this as the only independent artist in the Top 20.
Named by RollingStone.com as an "Artist You Need To Know", and dubbed a "rising country star" by Fox & Friends, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Will Hoge, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Marc Broussard, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. He's officially endorsed by Durango Boots, Gibson Guitars, BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his brand new album "All American Mutt", just debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Landing in between Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton, Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20.
