With great hits, albeit underappreciated ones, on Texas radio including 'What if,' 'Blame it on Waylon,' 'Ride of Your Life' and 'Honky Tonk Heaven,' Jason Cassidy is establishing himself as a legitimate “country” artist in the Texas scene. With the release of his new project "717," he cements himself firmly in it.

In the same vein as current Texas artists Aaron Watson, Cody Johnson and Jon Wolfe, Cassidy is proving folks still want their country music. And he's doing it with pounding melodies, intelligent lyrics, and uptempo high energy live shows.

Check it out above, last time Cassidy stopped by the show we played "Keeping it Country" where Jason had to sing some of our favorite hit country songs, with no preparation. Folks are still talking about it.
