Jackson Dean Breaks Out -Tours 2023

2022 was a breakout year for Jackson Dean.

When we introduced the then 20 year old Maryland native just over a year ago, the ink was barely dry on the self - penned single, Don't Come Lookin'. Since then, Dean has become one of music’s most intriguing new artists after releasing his critically acclaimed debut album Greenbroke, making his Grand Ole Opry debut, playing more than 110 shows and earning his first (of likely many) number one singles.

Having been featured on Netflix’s Ice Road soundtrack and Paramount Network’s, Yellowstone, Don't Come Lookin' cemented Dean as the youngest male in Radio and Records history land a No. 1 with their debut single. The smash also appeared on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and earned him the distinction as the most heard new artist on the Country Aircheck chart for 2022.

After landing himself on a slew of watch lists including heavy hitters like Pandora, CMT and Amazon Music (to name a few), 2023 is shaping up to be just as active. Already back on the road with headlining dates, this February 16th Dean will join Blake Shelton's Back to the Honky Tonk Tour with a special stop in Nashville February 3rd to make his second Grand Ole Opry appearance. See Jackson’s entire 2023 itinerary (so far) here.

For a firsthand example of Jackson’s talent, check out this solo acoustic offering of Don't Come Lookin' featuring his hand-crafted P3D from Takamine’s popular Pro Series 3. Also note the custom artwork on the well-played, cedar-top - satin-finished dreadnought. Within an hour after acquiring his P3D, the multi-faceted artist employed his wood burning skills to sanctify the relationship with his new songwriting and performance partner.

It seems to have worked.

Takamine Guitars is honored to play any roll whatsoever in sharing the massive talents of Jackson Dean.
