With her roots firmly planted in Texas, Jean Prescott was born in Amarillo and grew up horseback in West Texas, living and loving the rural western lifestyle. This way of life and her love of music came together over the years and led to the best of both worlds for her. And, for over twenty years she has hung her hat just a little bit south of Abilene, Texas, with her husband, singer/songwriter, Gary Prescott. Jean says she’s a singer, songwriter and once and only once a wild bronc rider.
A multiple award winning singer/songwriter, the Texas Legislature recognized Jean for her contribution to the preservation of Texas history through her music. Often called “The First Lady of Western Music”, Jean is proud to have the opportunity to entertain and at the same time promote and preserve the western heritage of America. She shares her love of the western lifestyle and its traditions through songs about the real west of yesterday and today. The heart of her music is the stories in her songs about those who came before us when the west was wild and untamed as well as life in the west as it is today, sometimes still wild and untamed.
Jean is devoted to God, her family, her country and cowboy and western music. With twelve CDs to her credit, her songs are sometimes described as “The Spiritual Essence of the West”. She covers cowboy, western swing, gospel and patriotic genres with her vast discography of songs.
It has been said that Jean Prescott belongs to the land and its people and she upholds the heritage, traditions and values of the western lifestyle. For over twenty five years she has entertained folks from concert stage to campfires, from churches to intimate living room concerts all across the country. With a voice as big as Texas her songs are sure to go straight to the heart and her music is always toe-tapping good!
