Meet the Jackson Family

Band Members: Joe Jackson, Mike Jackson,  Andy Jackson, Lana (Jackson) Estep, Chad Hurley

Hailing from Hurley, VA, this family of musicians are a must hear. Each piece they sing were a combo of great music and a sound description on what the Christian faith should be like.

The family band is at par with famous bluegrass bands like the Primitive Quartet and Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Similarly, they’re fond of fellow local musicians like the flat-picker guitarists and singers, Kenny & Amanda Smith. And in the same vein, multi-awarded Mr. Larry Sparks by the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) have left a strong influence on The Jacksons.

Currently signed up with Maggard Sound Inc, The Jacksons are seasoned players of Bluegrass and Gospel tunes. Common to any itinerant bands, they have combed through various counties in Virginia and North Carolina.

Here are two samples of their well-written and well-arranged songs.

I will Rise Up


Borrowing our sweet lady Dolly Parton’s words each time she sings spiritual songs, we hope you got a blessing from hearing the Jacksons.

A Time for Words and Songs

As we have perhaps noticed, patriarch Joe Jackson shares testimonies prior to the playing of songs. He just could not help it as he’s sincerely passionate about his Savior. In fact, in one of their acts, he had to say the following words to the listening audience,

“I’m not going anywhere until my appointed time, so you might as well get used to it.”
