J.R. Ward is an independent country music singer/songwriter originally from Chattanooga, TN who currently resides in Palm Coast, FL. Drawing influences from artists such as Waylon Jennings, Gary Allan, and Travis Tritt, J.R. writes and sings songs that show elements of another time with a fresh new sound all of his own. J.R. has played over 200 shows in the past two years in TN, SC, GA, and Florida. These shows have ranged from opening for other artists, local bars, private parties, and Assisted Living homes. Playing for people in assisted living and nursing homes has been the greatest impact to J.R. in his songwriting and how he performs.
"You really find out what's important when you play music for people who are at the end of their life. It reminds me to do what I love, and that's creating memories with music."
"There's not a day that goes by that I am not writing about my experiences as well as other people in my life that have inspired me to share a story in a song. I can't wait to share my music with the world."- J.R. Ward
