Ways To Subscribe

The growing suburb of Melissa, Texas has received recent attention thanks to the 2019 opening of a new branch of Texas gas station and tourist destination Buc-ee’s, but the small town is also becoming known as the home of overnight music sensation Jackson Scribner. It was only a few years ago that Jackson was merely coming up with some melodies and chords in his spare time, but his discovery by Dallas label State Fair Records has made the 21 year old Scribner’s dreams of a recording career a reality. Joined by his brother, Levi, Jackson Scribner spoke with Notably Texan to discuss his meteoric rise, his approach to songwriting, and talk about tracks from his self-titled debut.

Find links to all of his social media and more info about Jackson Scribner at his State Fair Records page. Hear Notably Texan, weekdays from 11am-2pm on KETR with Matt Meinke.
