Jason Kabler, Hendersonville TN Chapter Representative Volunteer
Jason Kabler was raised in Greencastle, PA. Though he was born legally blind, Jason never let this short coming stand in the way of his dreams. Jason spent his teen years writing, singing, and making a name for himself in the four-state area (MD,PA,VA,WV). During these years, Jason was singing hard rock tunes from bands like Poison, Guns and Roses and Bon Jovi.
Jason made the leap to country music in the 1990’s and toured the country as the lead singer of White Horse. In 1999, Jason landed an independent record deal with Eric Straton (ZZ Top, Little Texas, Quiet Riot, Diamond Rio) and made the move to Music City. Three songs from Jason’s debut CD, “Follow your Heart,” were released to radio. On Mother’s Day, a tribute song called “To Mother With Love” can still be heard on radio stations throughout the country.
In 2006, Jason was to appear as the first contestant on a national television show called Songwriters USA. Weeks before filming, the show fell through. Not discouraged, he continued writing, recording and playing out. In 2010 his song, “My Country,” from his CD “Doin’ It…For the Fans,” was named the theme song for the National Fallen Heroes Memorial. He sang live at the unveiling of the Freedom Bike built by Orange County Choppers for the Television show American Choppers.
As a singer/songwriter, Jason’s style continues to evolve. He is currently exploring a more pop/rock style influenced by artist like Paolo Nutini and Jason Mraz. Jason is currently writing for his ninth CD and he regularly tours in the four-state area.
Jason’s passion for writing has matured during his time working and raising his kids in Hendersonville. His empathy for others allows him to help other writers who might be struggling. He regularly hosts local and out of town songwriters for co-writes and enjoys inspiring others to follow their dreams.
