Carson Jeffrey, TAMU Class of ’20, will perform at Tap in College Station on Saturday.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Carson Jeffrey was born and raised in a rodeo family in Cat Spring, TX, and it wasn’t until his time at Texas A&M University that he discovered country music, his true passion.
Jeffrey’s dad ran a rodeo magazine. Jeffrey decided to specialize in Agricultural communication and journalism at Texas A&M to help with the family business.
Jeffrey said he had no idea he would pursue a career in music. He was a shy and calm kid until he started hanging out with friends more and singing.
“I had no idea two years ago that I was going to do this,” Jeffrey said.
Jeffrey said that since he was little he has always been a fan of country music.
“I had a bunch of Cross Canadian Ragweed albums, and that’s all I listened to,” Jeffrey said, “when I got into college I started playing in front of people and things like that. is when my interest in it [a music career] really took off.
Jeffrey released his first album in college. Jeffery said it was just for his friends, but he knew if he didn’t try to pursue a music career he would never get the chance.
Jeffrey said he always loved writing songs and playing the guitar. However, it was other musicians who encouraged Jeffrey to take the stage and sing with them. It was one of the catalysts of his career.
“Then I realized I thought I could do this,” Jeffery said.
