Jason Roller arrived in Nashville from Indianapolis, IN in 1996 at just 16 years old and hit the ground running. He had his first touring gig that same year with Ken Mellons even though he wasn’t even driving a car or old enough to buy a drink in the bars yet. Now, 27 years later, Jason is one of the most sought after musicians in town for a variety of instruments including electric guitar, acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin and ganjo.
Jason has toured with many of the artists you love including Joe Diffie, Daryl Worley, Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chesnutt, John Berry, Wynonna, Kellie Pickler, Gretchen Wilson, Collin Raye and Dolly Parton. Jason currently tours with Country Music Super Group Alabama. Jason has even branched some outside of country music and toured with Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame Member Dave Mason of the legendary band Traffic.
In addition to touring, Jason plays studio sessions all around town and owns and operates his own studio where he produces full length artist projects and songwriter demos. Jason has played on records for Joe Diffie, Lynn Anderson, Deep Purple, Dave Mason, Jeff Cook and William Shatner, Wynonna, Gordon Mote, Bucky Covington, Jaron and the Long Road to Love, Casting Crowns, and even played fiddle on an Alice Cooper record.
Jason’s grew up playing Bluegrass and is still heavily involved in the Bluegrass world, playing on records for well-known Bluegrass artists like Jerry Salley, Kristi Cox, Billy Droze, and Marija Droze. Jason is two time Grammy nominated for his contributions in a celebrated Bluegrass record and a famed Reggae record. While Jason’s heart remains in country and bluegrass music, his talents have reached far outside those genres. Jason is excited to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry Band and describes it as being “home”. Jason had his first performance on the Grand Ole Opry at just 17 and is thrilled that 24 years later he gets to step on the stage every week.
