From traveling throughout the Caribbean as a featured, headline act on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line to opening arenas and large festival dates for Peter Frampton, John Fogerty, Vince Gill, The Doobie Brothers, Lady Antebellum and the legendary Kenny Rogers around the world, Savannah Jack has honed their skills as outstanding live entertainers.

Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Savannah Jack has been the preferred opening act for Kenny Rogers, having performed onstage with him in excess of 66 times, including a 21-city tour of England, Scotland and Ireland. The band’s live show was recognized as one of the “Top Concerts of 2010” in the Greater Pittsburgh area, alongside other selectees Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Lady GaGa.

Savannah Jack is lead by the dynamic and energetic lead singer Don Gatlin, with Tony Haan on lead guitar and vocals, Jay Smith on fiddle, guitar and vocals, and Kenny Ames on bass.

Exceptional songwriters as well as versatile musicians, band members infuse their individual style to collectively create Savannah Jack’s unique sound. All have a strong musical background and have been singing and playing their individual instruments from a very young age. Their musical influences include Ronnie Milsap, The Gatlin Brothers, Kenny Rogers, Restless Heart, The Beatles, Tom Petty, and the Eagles.

The five-some released their self-titled debut album, featuring the single “I Know,” in 2010.

They are currently in the process of promoting their second studio album, entitled Night of Your Life, featuring special guests Love and Theft, Ronnie McCoury of the Grammy Award-winning Del McCoury Band, Vince Gill, and the Grammy Award-winning guitarist John Jorgensen.
