JD recorded his 2013 Patriotic summer hit "American in Me" released July 4th with Rocking Horse Studio also. His latest album "Modern Day Hank," in memory of the Honky Tonk King Wayne Mills, is completely torn down and raw to grasp the intensity and purity in each song of his 4 song acoustic session recorded at the Legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. with special guest Jason "Rowdy" Cope on pedal Steel.
Growing up in the heart of Dixie, his style was developed while listening to his mother’s kitchen radio playing traditional country music and his older sisters jamming out to grunge rock down the hall. So from his style and music to his personal outlook on life he takes a “real” feel approach. Life has handed JD many different opportunities to create songs that convey how others feel in their lives. He feels “Everyone has felt pain, or love, and the void of being in between” which in part is his inspiration to write his life story. JD Outlaw bleeds his life into these songs for people to feel his connection to their pain and love. His music reflects these exact emotions, from Hank style driven pedal steel, up beat tempo Alabama love songs, to the over stimulating visual imaging of Alice in Chains and the rawness of a good outlaw Waylon tune. In other words his music is about heartbreak, love, extreme sadness, as well as overwhelming happiness. JD Outlaw’s music is also contributed by being proud of your roots, and last but not least a good moonshine.
