Artist / Songwriter @ Jason McCoy
A 25-year veteran of the entertainment industry, and two-time CCMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Jason McCoy is a man of many talents. Growing up in the small town of Minesing, Ontario, Jason admired the well-rounded artistry of classic entertainers Roger Miller, Johnny Cash and Glen Campbell.
Jason set out at the age of 19 to follow his own path to stardom, compiling multiple CCMA awards, a Gold album and CMA Global Artist Award (Nashville CMA) along the way. As creator and front man of the best selling band in Canadian country music history, The Road Hammers, Jason took on the Country Rock genre and guided the band to unprecedented success throughout Canada and the United States, picking up a platinum album, CCMA Band of the Year award two years in a row, and most recently a third time in 2017, as well as a Juno Award.
The Road Hammers released a brand new album, The Squeeze, in the spring of 2017. Their first single “Crazy About You”, an uptempo track inspired by McCoy’s relationship with his wife, went top 10. “Your Love is a Drug”, their latest single, was the #1 most-added song at Canadian country radio at the time of release and continues to climb the charts.
Ever engaging and entertaining, Jason has become a popular host on many fronts. From voicing the nationally syndicated Country Radio show, Sounds Canadian, (2007-2010), to stepping in front of the camera as host of Smashtown (CMT Canada/USA), two seasons of CMT’s Pet Heroes (2010/2011), and Jason McCoy Eats America.
Equally comfortable behind the mic, or in front of the camera, Jason McCoy has become an incredibly well-rounded ‘entertainer’. Continuing to write and record music, Jason prizes the time he spends with his wife and two children at their home farm, just two miles from the small town of Minesing where it all began.
