MACK, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Jackson Michelson kicked off the 4-day country music festival, Country Jam.
It's the 27th year of the music festival held out in Mack. To start it off, Jackson Michelson performed on the main stage Thursday afternoon. The Oregon native says it's his third time performing at Country Jam.
"The last few times I've played out here, it's been an overwhelming response of 'We're so excited about your music' and starting to build some fans here. I love Grand Junction. It's such a cool town. It feels like quintessential Colorado, to me. I'm from the northwest, originally, so we've got a little bit of the same feel, but this is just more rugged and it feels like the wild west. I love being out here," said Jackson Michelson, performer.
Michelson also was the last performance of the night at the saloon on Jam Ranch.
