TV audiences and critics alike fell in love with Buddy Jewell's gentility, enthusiasm and true musical passion.

Buddy's self-titled debut album produced by country superstar CLINT BLACK on Columbia Records was certified GOLD, garnered two back-to-back top five hits with "Sweet Southern Comfort" and "Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey's Song)"  "Buddy Jewell" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts as well as #13 on the Top 100 Pop Album Charts. Buddy has been recognized by the Grammy's, ACM, CMA and CMT Awards with multiple nominations. He has gone on to win numerous other awards including the prestigious 2011 International Country Gospel Music Associations Entertainer of the Year and Crossover Artist of the Year. Buddy was also one of the top 5 nominees for the Inspirational Country Music Awards Mainstream Artist of the Year that same year.

Jewell's fan base is stronger than ever in 2014. The success of that relationship has always been built on mutual respect and admiration. Buddy remains as immensely loyal to his fans as they are to him. "They are amazing", says Buddy of his fans. "They have followed me and supported me through thick and thin. They have kept me motivated and I'm grateful to them for that."

Having shared the stage with the likes of Tim McGraw, Brooks and Dunn, and ZZ Top, Buddy Jewell is a well-rounded performer, a true entertainer, and an absolute crowd pleaser.

Buddy, an Arkansas native, is a true southern gentleman both on and off the stage. He has always reached out to his community and beyond, and considers his roles as spokesperson for The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation and work with St. Jude Children Research Hospital, as some of the most important of his career.

Jewell has been a constant supporter of our men and women in uniform throughout his career. In December 2010, Buddy traveled with the Sergeant Major of the Army, Kenneth O. Preston to Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait on an extensive USO tour, visiting and performing for our troops in remote forward operating bases, "If they can put their lives on the line for me and my family on a daily basis, spending a couple weeks facing the same challenges and hostile environment as they do is the least I can do to show my appreciation." "I believe in giving back", asserts Jewell. "Everyone can make a positive difference. With a little time and a little effort, we can make this world a better place."
