Jackson Dean talking about my campaign to get him to #1

I've been telling Jackson Dean from the moment his first radio single dropped, that he'll remember these moments climbing the Country chart for the first time for the rest of his life! Having seen how hard Jackson and his family have worked to get this far, I'm happy to do everything I can to help. Garth Brooks peaked at #8 with his first hit "Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)". George Strait got to #6 with his first hit , "Unwound". That's some great company for a hard working, focused and determined young rising star. I say let's help him make history. What do you say?
