Jordan Hester

Jordan HesterMusic has always been at the center of Jordan Hester’s life. Growing up in Nashville, Tennessee, music was around him both in his hometown and in his home. His mother, a pianist of over 50 years, got him started on the piano when he was seven years old. At age 13, Jordan picked up the bass guitar and never set it down. He attend Belmont University to continue his pursuit of playing music professionally.

In 2005, Jordan got his first gig in the music industry becoming the bass player for the rock band Tait allowing him to cut his teeth both in live and studio settings. Over the next few years, he would also play for artists such as Andy Davis, Matt Wertz, and Josh Doyle (of the Dum Dums).

In early 2010, Jordan began playing bass with country star Billy Currington. To date, Billy has notched seven #1 singles including “People Are Crazy” and “Must Be Doin’ Something Right”. These hit singles have allowed Jordan to appear in many nationally televised performances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the ACM Awards from Las Vegas, “Country’s Night to Rock” from CMA Fest 2010, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

In 2011, Jordan continued playing with Billy Currington as an opening act on Kenny Chesney’s “Goin’ Coastal Tour”, one of the top grossing tours in any genre in 2010. Later that year, Jordan was given the opportunity to play with Kenny Chesney himself for several weeks on this tour. After the Chesney tour ended, Jordan played with Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys on his “I’m Taking Off” tour in Canada and Japan. Heading into 2012, Jordan will appear on the US leg of Nick Carter’s “I’m Taking Off” and will continue to play full-time with Billy Currington.
