LIving and learning is something that this small-town farmers daughter Faith Jackson knows alot about! She wears many hats in her own life as a mother-of-two,wife and entertainer.
"I like to write and sing songs about real life,"she said. "When people hear me sng, I want them to be able to relate to the material. That means not every song is going to be happy! If you are truly living life to the fullest , you will have crazy times, good times and bad times. Life is about living and learning through our experiences, and music is there to help us get through them!
Growing up in south Georgia she learned alot about real life good and bad, and when you listen to her songs, you really start to understand the life of a real "Georgia Red Dirt Girl." After high school,Faith left home for the U.S Air Force, serving for nearly two years active duty, then transferring to the Air National Guard, in which she served another five years.
She started sing singing as a small child in church with her family and continued that through high school entering competitions when she could. During her time in the military, she put singing on the back-burner, but always kept it in her heart! It wasn't until she married her second husband and became a mom that Faith got active again in full force!
"Sometimes it takes a tragedy to wake up someone up," she said. "I have always wanted to pursue music, but it wasn't until I divorced my first husband, married again, lost a child during pregnancy that I really started pursuing my dreams...I turned hurt into music..to help me heal."
And heal it did. As a performer she has opened for Grammy award winning country artist Rodney Crowell, counrty group Confederate Railroad, American blues musician Sonny Landreth (who played with Jimmy Buffett), and the Sapphire Uppity Blues Women. After working with a band in Colorado, she decided it was time to go back home to her roots in Georgia.~
