- HOST JACKIE TANTILLO "I Love You Mom" - With Guest Singer-Songwriter-Musician Jackson Nance 29:29
Musicians and songwriters are storytellers. And Jackson has been writing songs since he was about 12 years old. His debut single, “I Love you Mom” is a belated birthday gift to his mom. He wasn’t going to record it in his next studio session but his coworkers insisted, and here we are.
Over the years and decades of working in the radio industry, I’ve interviewed hundreds of musicians. Jackson is up there at the top of the list as far as being polite, honest, humble and open about his strengths and weaknesses. I imagine a lot of that comes from his childhood and the fact that his family played a huge role in his life. Family is very important to my guest, not only because they keep you grounded, but he realized at a young age exactly how fortunate he truly was to have a mom , dad and brother that truly supported each other. He was taught to show respect and appreciation for all that he has and he really is all that! Jackson talks about “his solid foundation” and how it helps him stayed focused.
‘Norman’s Rare Guitars’ in Los Angeles, CA recorded a few videos with Jackson featured playing the guitar with special guest musicians. You should check these videos out on

He’s known for being at the right place at the right time but Jackson works hard at his craft because he’s so passionate about his music. Jackson has a great story to share about one of his early performances at the legendary Puckett’s in Leipers Fort, TN. For such a young performer, he got some crazy memorable stories to share about all the celebrated artists he’s come into contact with.
I wish you all the best Jackson!
