A multiple award winning singer/songwriter, Jean Prescott hangs her hat just a little bit south of Abilene, Texas, with her husband, singer/songwriter Gary Prescott. Jean’s music has been referred to as “the spiritual essence of the west” and she shares her love of western life through her songs about the real west of yesterday and today. The heart of her music, however, remains with the women of the west and their stories. Jean agrees with Red Steagall who says, “Women were the cement that held the west together, and nothing has changed”. This is evident in the songs she writes and sings about those western women of yesterday and today.
Jean’s rich alto voice graces an interactive music exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas, and she has been honored by the Texas State Legislature for her contribution to the preservation of Texas music and history. Jean is a recipient of the American Cowboy Culture Award for her preservation of the western way of life through song.
Her most popular CD Sweethearts in Carhartts, brings alive the stories of ranch wives. “They are the heroines behind the scenes whose stories need to be told and I have the utmost respect for them”, says Jean.
Whenshe is not on the road performing, Jean enjoys spending time at home writing new songs, working with her quarter horses and sitting on the porch drinking sweet tea.
Whether she graces a concert stage or an evening campfire, Jean Prescott’s music goes straight to the heart and is always toe tappin’ good.
