Since 2008 Jason Helms Band has been ripping up stages all across the United States, with a unique blend of Texas Country & Rock-N-Roll… a blend that landed then squarely in the label of Red Dirt. But make no mistake, these guys aren't some band being Red Dirt because they like Red Dirt bands – this music is a blend that is as real and honest as you'll find anywhere.
Texas Country has been around for years. From Bob Wills to Willie Nelson to the more modern day Randy Rogers Band and Wade Bowen. Texas has always created its own unique space in country music. Texas Country has become so popular, in fact, that it even has its own category on iTunes. The founders of Southern Sky are deeply embedded in these Texas Country roots. Jamie Weston and Scott Pearson are both 3rd and 4th generation musicians raised in the middle of the Texas Country music scene. These roots lead to dream that became Southern Sky.
