New Country Artist Jason Sturgeon Will Rock Monster Nationals Tour In 2012

(Nashville, Tennesse – Family Events PR) – Toolpusher Records’ artist Jason Sturgeon is partnering with the Monster Truck Nationals for 2012 to perform his revved up live set during the already high-octane event.

“I couldn’t be more excited!” says Jason. “I grew up around engines and cars, working on them with my dad. The Monster Truck Nationals tour is a father-son event so I’m really happy to be part of it.”

Sturgeon is currently working on a new song just for The Monster Truck Tour, which will be the first single from his forthcoming sophomore CD release.

The Monster Truck Nationals is a monster truck thrill show that features two legendary BIGFOOT trucks competing against a field of other top pro monsters at every event. Each event also features the car-crushing, fire-breathing Transaurus and the Lil’ Mighty Monsters – the world’s youngest monster truck team! Jason’s song and others in his live set will be performed as part of the “Party In The Pits” at select Monster Truck Nationals events. The Party In The Pits allow kids and parents to get up close and personal with their favorite Monster Truck and their drivers on the floor of the arena!

Some of the action you'll see on the 2012 Monster Nationals Tour.

“We can’t wait to add Jason’s high energy show into the Monster Truck Nationals series,” said Jessica Hubley, Marketing Manager for Family Events. “Jason is an incredibly talented artist with a true passion for motor sports. We know our audience will identify with his music on many levels.”

Jason Sturgeon’s debut release THAT’S ME is a vivid collection of audio snapshots of Jason’s life. From the hard-driving, unapologetic opening strains of the sexy, growling title track to the scorching heat of “Endless Summer,” you know exactly who he is, where he comes from, and what kind of ride you’re in for…which is not for the faint of heart. A hell-raising country rocker who can tear it up all night long, he also shows he can break it down in the quieter moments on tracks like the seductive “Blankets,” or spend moments in contemplation on what we’re all doing here on tunes like the homespun song “The Cover.” And he sums up his journey so far on the heartland ode “Simple Life,” a three-minute declaration of all that he is and holds dear. To understand Jason, pop in the CD and listen…he lays it out bare for you in three-minute vignettes packed with truth and honesty served str aight up, just the way he likes it.
