Internationally-acclaimed singer and songwriter Jason Ringenberg launched his musical career in the mid-1980s as the frontman of the award-winning punk rock/country band Jason and the Scorchers. In 2003, inspired by his young daughters, Ringenberg created his family music character Farmer Jason and released the album A Day at the Farm with Farmer Jason. With its themes of nature appreciation and ecology, the album earned rave reviews from national critics, as did his subsequent CD, Rockin’ in the Forest with Farmer Jason (2006). In 2009, Ringenberg partnered with Nashville Public Television to produce an educational video series called It’s a Farmer Jason!, which won an Emmy Award for Best Children’s Program Mid-South Region.
