Jamie Kent closed out 2016 with his single ‘All American Mutt’ one of the 25 Best Country Songs of 2016 according to Rolling Stone.
Marissa Moss wrote, “Packed with a funky vamp, splashes of fast-picking twang and a pop sensibility that Jason Mraz would admire, Kent focuses on the differences that describe but don’t define us. And who else can mention Buddhists in a country song?”
Kent debuted on the Billboard Country Albums chart at No. 16 with All American Mutt – the only independent. He also received the prestigious DISCovery Award from MusicRow’s Robert K. Oermann, who described the single as “a rootsy, rollicking, harmonica-punctuated track with a very cool lyric about tolerance and diversity.” A Massachusetts native Kent has approached his music career with a different spin, opting to form a grassroots group of fans called The Collective in lieu of a label deal, and shunned iTunes and Spotify. Produced by Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark), All American Mutt is only available on www.jamiekent.com.
