    Craig Jackson Band has been voted #2 in the Best Local Band category in The Tennessean’s 2011 Toast of Music City Reader’s Choice Awards. “These country-tinged soft Americana-based pop tunes go down nice and easy. The main focal point is Craig’s cool understated vocals…but there are all kinds of nifty soothing guitars chiming around in the background. Songs are the meat of this album…and all ten pretty much hit the target. This guy has a sound that could easily appeal to millions upon millions of listeners.”—Don Seven, LMNOP.com “He has captured the best of the A+ songwriting skills from the old school (Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Eagles,etc.) and incorporated a modern but organic approach to the production and arrangement elements. When I find myself singing along halfway through the first chorus and he takes the structure in fresh but easily accessible directions, the end result is a very satisfying listening experience that makes me want to keep coming back for more”–Mark Keefner, Waymo Music & Soundesign “Damn the Roses was recorded here at Cabin in the Woods studio and its array of styles and influences reflects the willingness of Jackson, a confident and gritty vocalist, to stretch his voice and try his hands on different types of things.” – Ron Wynn, The City Paper, Nashville “Craig Jackson’s fifth album demonstrates why he received a nomination for “Best New Band of 2009” at Nashville’s Toast of Music City awards. Opening with the quiet confidence of just a few guitar notes, Damn the Roses soon delivers ten nicely paced songs with strong rhythms and melodies…..It’s simply hard to imagine not finding pleasure in this album.”—David Cantor, Goodsound.com “It’s taken a handful of albums and quite of bit of polishing for Jackson to find his musical voice, but he’s managed to do just that on Damn the Roses, easily the most enjoyable release of his career.”—Jeffrey Sisk, Daily News, Pittsburgh “By definition this is a great Americana album. It has left of the mainstream dial appeal that encompasses a lot of style and substance into the songs by combining outstanding melodies.”—Jeffrey Kurtis, Guestlist Magazine
