Citizen of Country

J. Charles Shelton, aka Jasper Hollis in Australia, is an Americana Country Music singer/songwriter from Nashville, TN who personifies the much loved drawly southern vernacular. He has always revered his "Citizen of Country" roots, however it took living far from home, in fact Australia far, to see this ever-unfolding and still recent tale come to life. In his own words Shelton says, "There is no beginning without a first step, no point to the ending without a road to tred. I'm chasing my own neon rainbow where'er it may lead. In fact, spreading my roots beyond the comforts of home and sowing the seeds I've gathered along life's journey is the essence of Jasper + Hollis."
