Jamie Kent returns home for his Academy of Music headlining debut! With plenty of surprise guests, and a very special collaboration with the JFK Middle School Jazz Bandin store, this is a show not to be missed! Named by RollingStone.com as an "Artist You Need To Know", and dubbed a "Must Watch Artist" by The Huffington Post, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Kent has toured with legendary acts like HueyLewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Foreigner, and Marc Broussard. He's officially endorsed by Durango Boots, BOSE, and Telefunken Microphones, and his latest album "All American Mutt", debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Landing in between Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton, Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20.

Named the 2016 Durango / American Songwriter Sole Performer, artist Jamie Kent's future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, Kent's perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Marc Broussard, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. He's officially endorsed by BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his song "Changes" was used by The Boston Red Sox this past season. Most recently, RollingStone.com named Kent one of the "30 Must See Acts" of CMA Fest 2016, alongside Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, and Chris Stapleton. Kent is now gearing up to release his brand new album "All American Mutt", recorded in Nashville with Grammy nominated Producer Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark, Jerrod Neimann, Jamey Johnson) coming out on his own label, Road Dog Records, in October 2016.
