“I am so excited to have the new music video for “Better Life” available,” shares Byrd. “Thank you, Heartland for premiering the official video on television and Scenes Sessions online. I’m happy to have finally released my first music video and I hope that everyone will enjoy it. Keep it country!”
Byrd’s relationship with the legendary George Jones began when Byrd was chasing his musical dreams in the early nineties. The two developed a close friendship as Jones was someone Byrd had looked up to for most of his life. Jones opened many doors for Byrd, taking him out of the local honky-tonk scene to significant milestones, playing large stages nationwide including The Grand Ole Opry, and opening for some of country music’s biggest names. The release of “Better Life” allows Byrd to honor his friend and gives fans the chance to hear a special, never-before-heard recording with Jones one last time.

About Jason Byrd:
Jason Byrd was just 19 years old when he followed in his family’s footsteps and became a fireman. But there was another fire that burned within him, and that was music. In the early nineties, Byrd found himself balancing a career in the fire department with a career in Music City, traveling the 490 miles each way with the determination to make both of his dreams come true. Yet, in many ways, it wasn’t until the day that Byrd met the legendary George Jones that the trajectory of his entire career forever changed. Soon, small gigs at local bars and honky-tonks turned into major opportunities on stages across the country, opening for powerhouse artists such as Tracy Lawrence, Loretta Lynn, and Dierks Bentley. In the summer of 2019, Byrd made the decision to retire from his position as the Battalion Chief with the Tallahassee Fire Department. But his musical story was far from through. Byrd recently made the decision to finally resurrect an unreleased song he and Jones had worked on together many years ago, a song that is now his current single “Better Life.”
