Country Music singer and songwriter Jacky Jack White is excited to announce the release of his latest single, “Justified.” Released on Sucarnochee Records, "Justified" was written by Jacky Jack White and Richard Gordon Courtney and produced by Bob Angello.
"Justified”, is a story-song about an old cowboy on a cattle drive who dreams of eternity then tells the dream to a young trail-hand.
White explains, “I’ve always been a huge fan of western movies, cowboys and horses. I even started riding horses before I turned three years of age. Well one night I was watching “Ride the High Country” a great western movie with Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott. McCrea spoke a line in the movie that said, ‘I just want to go to my house, justified. It's amazing as a songwriter certain lines or phrases stay with us for years. Well, that line certainly stuck with me".
