Born and raised in West Texas, Jean Prescott grew up horseback 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. Jean’s music is referred to as “The spiritual essence of the west”. And, with that in mind the Texas Legislature recognized Jean for her contribution to the preservation of Texas history through her music. Jean’s songs and her beautiful delivery of them paint vivid musical pictures of the way of life in the real west of yesterday and today.
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Jean’s full time music career and she loves to share her songs with her fans today just as much now as she did in the very beginning. This multiple award winning singer/songwriter is widely appreciated for her rich, alto voice and her warm stage presence that draws her audience in to each song she sings. Sometimes 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.
Jean is devoted to God, her family, her country and cowboy and western music. Many of her songs tell stories of the women of the west then and now. Preserving the history of their experiences is something that is near and dear to Jean’s heart.
With numerous CDs to her credit, “Traditions” was the longest running top 10 western album of the year for 2014 with the reporting DJs of the Western Music Association. She and her husband Gary recently released a new CD titled Satisfied Hearts. Jean says “Singing from a satisfied heart is what it’s all about.” It ranks in the top 20 of the most played CDs of 2017 by western music DJs.
Dedicated to pursuing and preserving the way of life they love, Jean and singer/songwriter husband, Gary Prescott, make their home south of Abilene, Texas, on a small ranch where they raise black angus cattle and she continues to write songs about the cowboy way of life.
