"Hard to Be an Outlaw (Who Ain't Wanted Anymore) came from one of the wild conversations with my roughhouse, rounder, one and only, real brother. Far as I'm concerned, straight shooting, greatest entertainer, songwriter, kickass, lives life to the hilt, outlaw who ever lived – or will live - my best friend, Jackson Taylor." - Billy Joe Shaver.
When you're immortalized in a song written by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, and recorded by Billy Joe and Willie Nelson, there really is not much more to say than a few facts…
Since 2001 Jackson Taylor has been one of the most prolific songwriters and recording artists of any genres of music, with over a dozen CD's and multiple times on Billboard's Top 100 list. All without record companies, management, booking agents, or publicists. Jackson Taylor personifies true independence.
Born the youngest son to a migrant farm worker, Jackson spent his youth living the modern equivalent of Steinbeck's, "Grapes of Wrath." With a background much more akin to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, than his contemporaries. Jackson's music reflects his adolescence of hard labor and poverty. Growing up working and living in the California, Washington, and Montana fruit ranches. Jackson's musical influence crosses many boundaries. He has recorded with red dirt legend Jason Boland, and Austin Texas legend Dale Watson. Jonny Two Bags, the lead guitarist of Southern California's punk innovators and royalty, Social Distortion. As well as rockabilly troubadour Lucky Tubb, and south Texas rockers the Pear Rats. He has shared the stage with everyone from Lynnrd Skynnrd and The Black Crowes, to Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver. Much of Jackson's career early on was marred by excessive drugs and alcohol, and violent outbursts. Cementing his image as a wild and out of control artist. Leading him to being blacklisted from many venues across the country and internationally.
The last five years, Texas music's baddest boy has made good, found his center, and was offered his place in Texas music history by recording a Live at Billy Bob's CD/DVD in 2013, which would have been unthinkable just a few years before.
Jackson now lives in Denver, CO with his wife, writing books, painting, and turning his manic energies into a constant flow of creativity. He and his band The Sinners, continue to tour and put out records. And as the wild times fade into memory, Jackson Taylor is showing to be as resilient as he is prolific.

While all are accomplished individual performers, it took a tragic event to lead to the group's genesis.
Darin Husmann started performing in music at the age of 10 in the Bismarck All-City Boys' Choir. His true call to music wouldn't find him again until 10 years later. In college, Darin was invited to sing to the Administrative Assistant for the Morning Show on radio station KGLL FM 96.1 "The Eagle", in honor of Secretary's Day. After singing live on the air, the listeners' overwhelming response led the station to form a 14-week segment called the "Make My Day" segment, starring Darin, singing modified cover songs to fit special events. In 1998, he became lead singer in the KGLL FM 96.1 band.
Brian Husmann's accomplishments include: Top 5 National Finalist for the Mickey Mouse Club in the same class as Brittany Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera; three years performing with the Arvada Actor's Guild; several first place finishes in local and regional singing competitions; and 5 years living and performing in Nashville, TN - at establishments such as Legends Corner, The Stage, and Tootsie's.
In December 2007, their Mother (Sandra Husmann - "Sandy") unexpectedly collapsed at the entrance of the "Mall of America" while Christmas shopping. Darin and Brian caught a red-eye flight to Minneapolis, MN, where Sandy was in Intensive Care. Their Mother was completely unresponsive. When Brian and Darin sang to her, her heart rate increased, and she showed signs of brainwave activity. She continued to live for 2 more days. and Momma's Pride was born.
Sandy never got to see them perform on stage together, so every time they perform, it is in her honor.
- In 2008, Momma's Pride rocked the stage of the world famous "Grizzly Rose" during the NBC audition for the "Nashville Star" television show. They then went on to the National Finals held in Washington D.C., and advanced through two days of cuts, to the final elimination. This put them in the top ten duos in the United States, out of over 50,000 applicants.
- In 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015 Buck'd Off (Formerly Momma's Pride) won the Nebraska State Championship for the Texaco Country Showdown, the largest country music talent search in America. LeAnne Rhymes, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley all got their start in this competition.
Buck'd Off's ultimate goal is to make an audience smile, and enjoy their greatest passion...singing and playing country music.
