TRUSSVILLE — Fourteen-year-old Hewitt-Trussville Middle School student Jackson Capps was an invited guest of RFD-TV’s “The Right Place with Kevin Sport” on April 5 at Puckett’s in Columbia, Tenn., just outside Nashville.
As part of the taped show, Capps was interviewed privately by Sport and then performed a 45-minute set for a full audience. Other guests of the show included 2steel girls, who were finalists on “The Voice” two seasons ago on Blake Shelton’s team. Capps’ taping will air in three to six months on RFD-TV, which can be found on satellite and some cable networks. It will be announced on the “Jackson Capps Music” Facebook page when the show will air.
Capps debuted on the Grand Ole Opry on July 20, 2012, going on to perform at Marty Stuart’s concert in Greeneville, Tenn., on March 23, 2013, both of which he received standing ovations from the crowd. Capps recently opened for two accomplished songwriters Byron Hill and Wil Nance at The Writer’s Share at Workplay in Birmingham on March 13, where he performed his own original music.
Capps continues to write his own music and collaborate with others in songwriting. He’s currently working with several Nashville songwriters, including Don Goodman, who wrote Blake Shelton’s hit song “Ole Red.” Capps has opened for Gene Watson in 2012 and George Hamilton IV in 2011 at the Hank Williams Festival in Georgiana. He has appeared on “The Shotgun Red Variety Show” in 2012. Capps has also won first place in Trussville’s Got Talent for his performance of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and Joy.”
