As far back as he can recall, his memory is filled with treasured visits with his grandfather. His Granddad played the guitar and the fiddle, a sound that crept into Jarrod’s very existence. That musical influence has always managed to stay close to his heart. As a young adult he began to try his hand at song writing, but never really felt any degree of accomplishment. He shifted gears a bit, and spent several years attempting to earn a living riding bulls on the professional rodeo circuit. While he has since left the dirt of the arena floor behind, that time served him well. It was his chance to experience a few hardships, injuries, and an opportunity to see parts of this wonderful nation that many others never get to see. While on “injured reserve” he picked up songwriting again. This time, with a little more maturity and a vast stock of experiences to put on paper, the writing came easy. It came from the heart and soul of Jarrod Birmingham, filtered by real life. Another thing to come out of that era was a desire to perform. What started out as a group of friends doing “barn pickings” became a bonafide band. Desire pushed harder, and the Jarrod Birmingham Band competed against thousands of contestants to take first place in the “Rising Stars Over Texas” talent search. The road would be long…but the door was open. He has been compared to Waylon, and has been told he looks like Dwight, but he is all Jarrod. Backed by a five piece band, he has honed his live show playing gigs across the southern states, often opening for a long list of Texas/Americana artists and a few products of Nashville. Many react with amazement as he walks onto the stage and changes from the artist to the entertainer. He comfortably takes the heartfelt songs of the artist and tells the listener an intense, believable story as the entertainer. Grammy nominated Producer Eric Paul says, "Jarrod Birmingham is what I consider to be the first real singer of the 21st century." Paul produced Birmingham’s freshman effort “A Waitin’ and A Wishin.’” Hailing from the Texas Gulf Coast, he is every bit a product of the Lone Star State. But that lone star state of mind means he is just about as independent as they come. While his Texas roots run deep, make no mistake, there is no “Anti-Nashville” syndrome here. Indeed Birmingham has stood on Music Row, inhaling the Nashville traditions into his lungs. But he has as well stood on mountain tops in the Rockies, and on the plateaus of the Great Plains. There is no “pre-destination” in his mind about his music. His music is about as diverse as it can be and still be called country, a point he answers well on his current album, Stages released in September of 2003. Jarrod Birmingham’s songs are steeped in realism, real songs, every man songs, songs about people you know, places you’ve been, good times you’ve had and loves you’ve known. Whether a hard driving "rebel" country-rock tune, or the solitary crooning that seems to make the words hang in the air, focusing the listener's attention as they await the next word, it's like catching "lightning in a bottle." Jarrod Birmingham renders ideas into the music that creates happy, satisfied fans. He admits, with a bit of a twinkle in his eye, that he "sometimes" misses the rodeo arena. "I never really quit riding bulls," he says, "the music just sort of took over."

OK, I guess. Very derivative though. I have a feeling that if the older style country this guy attempts to emulate were still around, this wouldn’t get much play. Also, it makes you wonder why a guy feels compelled to write a song exclaiming that “if you don’t like me then I probably won’t like you.” A little defensive aren’t we Jerrod?

Seriously, Josh. You missed the point of the song completely. It's not just about Dallas. It's a commentary of the erosion of Texas culture in the face of mass urbanization. You could insert any city into the song and the message is still the same. You obviously live in Dallas and Dallas is a big city. I haven't seen you panning Merle over his song 'Big City'. List to Jarrod's song again and look for the message. It's there if you'll just listen.

Jarrod- Have any of you been able to sit down and talk to this man? WOW! He is truely amazing. His music is from within him and he puts on a pretty damn good show too. I hope everyone is willing to give this man and his band a minute of their time. You won't be disappointed. Catch a show sometime, sit have a drink, buy Jarrod some whiskey (and the band jager), and wait til the shows over...you'll get to meet a legend! Hope to see some of y'all at the shows.

Saw him at River Road Ice House July 4, 2006. He opened for Jack Ingram, and personally, I thought he was much better. Great performer, with a Waylon Jennings type of sound. Would recommend No Apologies to anyone.

I've seen plenty of artists come on to the scene and lose their identity, going off and trying to mold their sound by what everyone else is doing or by what Nashville is selling. Jarrod's a good 'ole boy who cares about his fans and plays the kind of country we can be proud of. He's a great showman and a great guy to have a beer with afterwards... or during. Rock on, JB.

Jarrod is the real deal, I have met him twice in Council Bluffs,IA he has what it takes to take back OUR country music. Let the boy bands and bubble gum country artists go to pop music where they belong. We need more J B's out there singing REAL country music, If you don't like his music turn on the yuppy pop country crap station and get the hell out of our country music scene.
