Jared Wade is an American country music singer-songwriter originally from Pooler, Georgia, a small town 10 miles outside of historic Savannah. It quickly became known that Wade was one of those rare, self-taught talents who picked up his first guitar by virtual chance.
Wade attended Georgia Southern University along with country music classmates Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Dallas Davidson and Eric Lee Beddingfield. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing, Wade took a management position at UPS until he picked up a guitar for the first time in 2006.
Within just two years of performing for his first live audience, Jared Wade found himself in front of thousands of fans while opening the famed Luke Bryan Farm Tour both in 2010 and 2011, as well as opening for artists such as Wade Bowen, Confederate Railroad and Blackhawk and in the studio at the iconic Otis Redding estate working with Otis Redding III.
It wasn’t until 2013 that Jared Wade’s career exploded after moving to Nashville, Tennessee to record his debut EP Drunk on Sunshine. The project was recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium Studios which has graced world-class artists such as Kenny Rogers, Johnny Cash, Kenny Chesney, Don McClean, John Denver, Taylor Swift, REM and Alan Jackson. Jared’s performance on the EP lead to him winning the Georgia Music Awards “2013 Country Male Vocalist of the Year” as well putting him on the road with country music legend Tracy Lawrence on the 120-stop Headlights, Taillights and Radios tour.
In 2014, Jared hit the road with Tracy Lawrence again as well as dates with John Anderson and Joe Diffie. By April, he found himself on the cover of Pooler Magazine, playing private shows for professional athletes and nominated for both Georgia Music Awards 2014 Male Vocalist of the Year and 2014 Country Male Vocalist of the Year.
