Jackson was born in Jonesboro and grew up in a small rural farm community just outside of Jonesboro, where he attended Westside School District.
He has released two albums, and is currently working on a third. The first, his self-titled EP “Cory Jackson,” was released in February of 2015. His second EP, “Let’s Get It Right,” was released in May of 2016.
One single, “Row by Row,” off the new project was released last summer. The song was written by Jackson and Matt Thomas, a member of Jackson’s band. His second single, which he has writer credit, was released in July 2018, called “Feel Good Happenin’.”
In June 2018, the ACMA awarded Jackson with “Country Artist of the Year.” He also received a top five nomination for Entertainer of the Year, and his video for “Row by Row” was nominated for ACMA Video of the Year. He has again received a top five nomination in the category of “Country Artist of the Year,” with the winner to be announced at the live awards show June 3. Recently, Jackson was named 2019 “Best Vocalist” in the “Best of Northeast Arkansas” sponsored by the Jonesboro Radio Group.
