Singer Jade Eagelson On His New Album For Universal, Canadian Country Music, Van Halen & More

At just 25 years of age, Jade Eagleson’s voice takes listeners back to the days of Johnny Cash, George Jones, and Randy Travis, in that it’s unmistakably country. In August 2017, Eagleson was crowned the winner of the “Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist” showcase, beating out a lengthy list of talented artists.

Following his “Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist” showcase victory, Jade Eagelson signed with Universal Music — Canadian’s leading record label — and went on to record his debut, the now-certified Gold-selling single, “Got Your Name On It.” The song garnered over 52 million global streams and peaked at #6 at Canadian Country Radio. Shortly after the song’s music video was released, Eagelson was featured as YouTube Trending’s “Artist On The Rise” and appeared on the website’s homepage, which was the first time a Canadian-signed artist in any genre received such an honor. As a result, the music video for “Got Your Name On it” was streamed as much as half-a-million times in a 24-hour period and now has 4 times more views than any other Canadian-helmed country video released to YouTube.

Jade Eagelson currently has over 70 million global streams based on only 5 songs released to streaming services, only 3 of those 5 songs being singles released to radio. Eagelson’s self-titled, full-length debut was released earlier this week via Universal. As embedded below, I had the pleasure of speaking with Eagelson via Zoom on July 29, 2020 about getting signed, his music video for “Close,” musical influences, the Canadian country scene and more.
