From the venue:
Ben Jarrell was born and raised in Dothan, Alabama and the many smaller towns on its outskirts.
If you were to write out the story of Jarrell’s journey from then until now, it would read like a country song. A damn good one, too. One initially fraught with discord and disappointment - nearly every touchstone a person relies on in their formative years gone. Failed.
Rock and roll grew out of failed systems both big and small and Jarell found it in his teen years. Mike Ness’s Social Distortion was a light in an abandoned building. Jarrell followed that light toward Ness’s solo efforts that were more country than anything else. Once Jarrell open that door, he never stopped to close it. He just kept going; from The Stanley Brothers, Jerry Reed, Johnny Paycheck, Guy Clark and even some of the bluegrass greats to The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd to contemporary acts like Blackberry Smoke and Whitey Morgan.
