FEATURE: Tennessee Jet Creates a Sound of His Own
By Julie Wenger Watson / Red Dirt Nation

SLY VINYL - RECORD REVIEW
Tennessee Jet is the pulse of American roots. The crossroads, the railroads, and the back roads. The flesh and the spirit, the lion and the lamb, the blood and the sweat. Even more a representation of these here United States is the diversity in which Tennessee Jet treads. Blues run into bayou country and bleed into heart-on-sleeve soul. One minute you’re at a small town revival and the next minute you’re knee deep in the marsh. Whatever it is you love about this country, at some point on Tennessee Jet’s debut…you’re gonna find it.
I hear the deep-fried blues of the Alabama Shakes, the guttural cry of Paul Westerberg’s slower ballads, and the alt country perfection of Ryan Adams. Open minds and open beers will be needed for the ride.

"Local hard-core troubadour, and one-man-band Tennessee Jet, is all piss and vinegar … in the best ways possible. Dwight Yoakam meets Jack White vibes. Dare we even say, “The Man in Black”, who stars (via public domain laws) in Tennessee Jet’s latest music video for “Soul”, off this year’s self-titled release. Stay tuned to No Country for more information on all things local that rock!" -JACOB RYAN
