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."

Don't Live in Dallas could very well be one of the Great Songs! It says everything those of us who refuse to be identified by those Damn Yankees in Plano and parts north. It reminds me of the story that Amon Carter would bring a sack lunch with him to Dallas if he had to go there so he did not have to eat "their" food.

I went to see Jarrod Birmingham in concert over the weekend. Will not say where but this guy is a total joke. He thinks he is a combination of Dwight Yoakum and Traci Lawrence. His looks suck and so does his music. He needs to find another profession. Also someone needs to take scissors to that hair. Jarrod Birmingham is a total joke to the texas country music lineup.

to txmusicfan, the last reviewer with posted notes about this album. what a fan you are. anyone who knows anything about texas music, knows that david allan coe was born in akron, OH, so actually, he's a born yankee, but maybe converted to a texan. i think this is a great album and "i don't live in dallas" is an AWESOME song, of course i live in ft worth, too. shoot, sell all the dallas yuppies. The Ranch. let's hear a little more of that song on the air.

Hey txmusicfan, David Allan Coe is from Ohio, born and raised. I Don't Live in Dallas is a JOKE. Just like Redneck Mother, Okie From Muskogee, etc. Everyone else gets it, that's why it's on the radio in Dallas/Ft. Worth every day.

I am totally apalled by the comment left from JR. Jarrod Birmingham is one true artist. He puts alot of emotion, honesty and thought into his music. He is compassionate and a wonderful human being. He is a true texas country artist and he will go so very far in the industry. He knows how to get his fans involved with his music and I rate him 10 stars-plus. Keep up the terrific music. Hope to see you again very soon. Cannot wait to hear more songs like Whiskey & Lies and Walk Away. Love ya DMS

We just saw Jarrod again last night. He is truly Texas, in song and in heart. He has not forgotten how to dream, and he reminded me how important it is to keep dreaming. I wish him the best this life has to offer. He is the type of talent we need more of. You go, boy! Wanda

As a small venue promoter, I have had the pleasure of traveling across Texas and observeing many Texas artist like Jack Ingram, Jon Wolfe, Tommy Alverson, Pete Benz, Deryl Dodd, Jamie Richards and Jarrod Birmingham. Jarrod is a true down to earth Texas hearted singer. He doesn't mind talking with his fans after his performance and he certainly doesn't want anyone to walk away without a hand shake or autograph because of lack of money. I have seen him give away a t shirt a cd, sign a dollar bill or even ladies t shirt strap. Jarrod truly is deserving of the title of Texas Artist. I am proud to know him and think that he is my friend.
