Song Premier: Jack Barksdale - "My Mother"

Its pretty rare for us to cover a song written by a 10-year-old, but then again its also pretty rare to find someone that young who can play 5 different instruments, write songs, and has shared the stage with artists like Ray Wylie Hubbard. Not only is singer/songwriter, Jack Barksdale talented, but he also is using his music for a great cause, to help fight cancer. His new song and music video, titled “My Mother” will raise money for cancer initiatives in North Texas through the Cancer Support Community North Texas. For every $25 donated, you will receive an autographed poster from Jack.

“I wrote this song about how I felt when my Mom had cancer,” said Jack. “Thankfully, she is now three years cancer-free, but many aren’t as lucky. We’re hoping to raise money to help those families still affected by the horrible disease.”

Catch Jack onstage Sunday, Dec. 3 at Fort Worth’s Magnolia Motor Lounge at 7 p.m. with local artists Keegan McInroe, Matt Tedder and Wesley Geiger.
