The band will also return to the road this summer playing select dates beginning August 11, 2017, in Huntsville, AL.
Jackson + Enation released their music video for “Revolution Of The Heart” premiered on CMT. “It’s the most anti-political, political song I’ve ever written,” says Jonathan Jackson about “Revolution Of The Heart.” There certainly are good revolutions throughout history, but many ended up being terrible and destructive, even when there were good intentions involved. Our world is more divided than ever it seems, and the political climate is driving deeper wedges in society. Ultimately, politics can only offer some of the answers we’re looking for. The deeper longing that I’m “marching for” personally is a revolution of the heart. It’s an inner revolution. We need to first love each other and remember our common humanity. Then we can approach politics and work towards important solutions.”
The band also performed in front of over 300,000 at the 101st Indianapolis 500 pre-race festivities on Sunday, May 28, performing on a specially designed rolling stage on the 2.5 mile race track. The stage stopped in Turns 1, 2 and 4 for performances from the group.
