Jason Whitehorn (born January 19, 1976) is an American contemporary worship music singer and songwriter. Jason has been writing, performing and releasing both country and worship music for over a decade since his career began in early 2000. He is originally from just outside Savannah, Tennessee[2] where he and Darryl Worley attended high school.[3][4] He has performed or worked with Darryl Worley, Thrasher Shiver, Bryan White, David Allan Coe, Matt Maher, Casting Crowns, Matt Redman[5] and has collaborated with others.[6]

Jason is currently the Redemptive Arts Pastor at Grace Church outside of Indianapolis, writer for Worship Leader Magazine, Compassion International touring artist, and national worship conference speaker.

Career[edit]

Whitehorn began his professional career while managing and playing lead guitar for Shane Avery. Soon after September 11th, he and Avery co-wrote "Song of America" and released the song to radio stations and select retailers in order to raise money for the families of fallen fire and police officers of New York City.[citation needed] Soon after Jason departed from the relationship managing Avery, he began a solo career of his own.[7] He wrote "Knock, Knock" and "Prisoner of My Mind".

Music[edit]

Whitehorn's music in his earlier years was rooted deeply in country, but in mid-2008, he began developing himself as a contemporary Christian artist and departing from some of the more traditional "pop-style" country that his fans had been more accustomed to. Now, Jason is concentrating more on honing his skills as a songwriter instead of being merely an entertainer. Jason writes and releases songs for the church community that garner moderate crossover into the commercial radio world with releases of songs like "Never Alone."[8]
