Jabe Burgess was raised in Greenwood, AR. Early on Burgess was inspired by his Dad's music, 90's country, Springsteen and the Eagles. These songs inspired him to teach himself how to play his Dad's guitar at 10 years old. Burgess started writing songs in college while attending the University of Tulsa on a football scholarship where he played Quarterback for the Golden Hurricane for 2 years, 1 year at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and 1 year at Delta State University. After his football career ended Burgess formed a band consisting of home town friends and performed all across Arkansas and Oklahoma. In 2017, Burgess began traveling back and forth between Arkansas and Nashville to write with hit songwriter, Mark Alan Springer. In June of 2018, Burgess signed a publishing deal with Springer Ink. In his first year in Nashville, Burgess wrote over 100 songs and in the spring of 2019 he began recording his debut record with producer McV (Kane Brown, Levi Hummon). The fall of 2019 Burgess will begin releasing songs from the project starting with his debut single Football Town.
