Mississippi Mason is a singer/songwriter hailing from Columbus, MS. Mason writes and sings music for “simple folks”–storytelling songs with catchy, singable melodies and accessible lyrics. Having tasted the music business while growing up traveling with his dad’s southern gospel band on the weekends, it’s no surprise that he ended up as a musician himself. With influences from a wide range of old and new country, southern rock, and gospel artists, Mason seems at home in a ball cap as much as the cowboy hat to which he’s dedicated an entire song. As a writer, he seems less influenced by the bro-country of the last decade and more inspired by the writers of yesteryear. His idols are Johnny Cash, Jamey Johnson, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and it shows.
