For an artist whose contemporaries include the Jonas Brothers and Taylor Swift, acknowledging an
inherent fellowship with Hank Williams Sr. is not only daring, it’s nearly unheard of in this contemporary day and age. But, Jeremy Parsons is “up” for the challenge!
Growing up in San Antonio, Parsons was surrounded by country music introduced to him by his parents and older sister; the 22 year-old proudly admits he’s always been drawn to the American classics, the music he describes as the “good stuff.”
“My dad worked at a country radio station when I was young. I recall running up and down the halls listening to the old-time music playing through the speakers.

His diplomatic yet charming, funloving yet realistic, social yet timid graces make Jeremy a charismatic and magnetic shining star. You cannot help but like Jeremy Parsons!
