Jefferson has released one studio album on Almo Sounds produced by Garth Fundis; he also charted three singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. His highest charting single, "Check Please," co-written with singer songwriter Jon Michaels, peaked at No. 50 in 1996.

In 2004, Jefferson recorded one album with Porter Howell, then formerly of Little Texas, in the band Hilljack.[1]

As a songwriter, Jefferson has had his songs recorded by Keith Urban and Buddy Jewell, among others. He also co-wrote Aaron Tippin's Number One song "That's as Close as I'll Get to Loving You."
