Jackson Michelson

Jackson Michelson Concert for Summit Attendees

6:00 – 9:00 p.m. • Grand Ballroom

Sponsored by the Oregon State Sheriffs' Association, rising country music star Jackson Michelson will be performing exclusively for Summit attendees in the Red Lion Hotel on the River’s Grand Ballroom. This is a performance you won’t want to miss.

About Jackson: Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast, carving out a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Nashville — the official capital of country music — lay 2,300 miles to the southeast, but Michelson focused on his home turf first, building an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he did move to Nashville, he’d already spent years on the road, growing his fan base show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process. Now, with a record deal under his belt, Michelson is prepping for the next phase of his career. There are new shows to play, new songs to be written and new opportunities to explore. But he’s still the boy from Corvallis, happy to sing about “The Good Life” — a life he’s built himself, show by show and song by song — to an audience that continues to grow.

Appetizers and no-host bar will be served for all attendees.

NOTE: Conference badge is required for entry — no exceptions.

Raffle guitar

ALSO: Enter the Summit guitar raffle!

OSSA has donated an electric guitar signed by Jackson Michelson to be raffled off during the Summit. Raffle tickets are 1 for $5 and 3 for $10, with proceeds going toward future Summit scholarships. The winner will be announced during Jackson’s Wednesday-night concert.
