Tyler Jackson is a world renown tenor banjoist and upright bassist. Under the tutelage of Buddy Griffin, he quickly learned the ukulele, tenor banjo, and electric bass.
Tyler went on to study the double bass at the University of North Texas under Lynn Seaton. With the help of Seaton he began to fine-tune his skills as a professional bassist. It was during this period that he was asked to work for Ray Price and the Cherokee Cowboys.
Touring with Price took him all over the world and allowed him to play countless venues across North America including the Grand Ole Opry, Massy Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Gruene Hall, as well as the Stagecoach Festival, Austin City Limits Live and more. In 2007-09 Ray Price teamed up with Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard to form the highly successful “Last of the Breed” tour. Tyler can be seen on A&E's “Last of the Breed” DVD and heard on the live CD as well.
Besides his tenure with the late Ray Price, he has worked with many well known artists spanning several genres including Earl Klugh, John McEuen, Randy Travis, Jim Cullum, and Dale Watson. Currently residing in Boerne, TX, Tyler continues to tour, record and teach private lessons.
