Nashville, TN, April 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Coulter’s love for music has been anchored in pure country and gospel music since the young age of four years old when he received his first guitar as a Christmas gift from his late grandfather, Millard P. Warren. “As a child I can remember my dad casually sitting around the house with his guitar and singing songs by Country Music Legends like Merle Haggard, George Jones and others…” Coulter says. It wasn’t long until Coulter was joining in with his dad and family. “I often remember thinking that I would never be able to play and sing like him…” Coulter states.
Little did he know he wouldn’t be long before he would be standing on stage and taking the lead. In his teenage years, Coulter found himself playing bass in a secular band covering everything from Bob Seger to Keith Whitley. However, at the age of 19 came a pivotal moment in Coulter’s life. He stumbled in to a small Pentecostal church in Geneva, Kentucky and heard a sound that captured his heart. “The upbeat hymns and southern gospel music was something I hadn’t heard in church before. I fell in love with the songs along with the sound of the flat top guitars, thumb style guitar picking, Jerry Lee Lewis style piano playing, bluegrass banjo, and three part harmony singing,” Coulter states. By this time, his interest had peaked and it was there Coulter made the decision to follow Jesus Christ.
Since that day, Coulter has honored his commitment to use his gift of singing and playing to honor Christ through Christian music. He soon began traveling to churches, schools, prisons, and countless other venues sharing his gift of song that was much inspired by the musicians and singers in that small Pentecostal church.
Now along with his wife (Heather) and three children (Spencer 18, Gentry 13, and Jaden 7) Coulter’s music career has and is becoming much of a family affair. Their oldest son (Spencer) is a self-taught musician who plays guitar and piano and is a great vocalist. Gentry, (13) much like her older brother is able to set down at a piano and plays by ear, while their youngest (Jaden) is already singing and keeping time with his first drum set. Plans for a full family recording are already in the works for the future. Coulter says, “I have been able to focus on my music career simply because I have been blessed with a wife that has always been willing to take care of our children and our home in order for me to travel and sing. I know its not been easy for her to do at times and it’s only because of her willingness and personal sacrifice that I have been able to share my music to this capacity.”

Coulter’s debut album is slated for either third or fourth quarter of 2016 and they plan to work him to the Christian Country format. CEO Jonathan Goodwin states, “We plan to put our core competencies around what Jason does well. He connects with his fans, and sings what he believes. We plan to help take his music to the next level. His teachable spirit and open-mindedness is going to contribute a great deal to our success.” Coulter concludes with, “I have found out that as a musician and singer you're never too old or too good to learn, and I thank God for my training thus far from some of the greatest musicians and singers in the nation today. I’m excited about the journey ahead.”
