They may very well be the hardest working trio in country music today – at least until curfew
American Hope, which is made up of 15 year old Jameson on lead vocals and guitar, 13 year old Jadyn on bass guitar and vocals and 12 year old Kenyon on drums, hail from Hiram, just outside of Atlanta, Georgia and they’re already veterans of the music scene – having been in the business, believe it or not, going on eight years now
They’ve recently released the first music video from their debut album; that video is for the song “I’ll Be There”, which is dedicated to all first responders, in honor of the sacrifices they make to serve their communities every day.
That trio stopped by to fill the guest slot on the Tuesday edition of the WEIS Radio Morning Show with Jerry Baker and talk about their career, their influences, and a very special show they have coming up.
According to Jameson these themes support what they value as musicians. They care about spreading positive energy their songs; he went on to explain that even the band’s name was chosen not only because it’s their last name, but because it reflects the hope that they want to bring to listeners through their music.
The group also has strong ties to this area:
American Hope will be in concert on Saturday at the Little River Canyon Center – doors will open at 5:00 that afternoon with local special guests performing beginning at 6:00pm; then, Aberdeen Green out of Nashville will perform at 7:00, with American Hope hitting the stage at 8:00.
Admission is FREE – donations to first responder organizations welcome.

Rising country band American Hope have released their first-ever music video for the song “I’ll Be There” from their 10-song, self-titled debut album, which premiered back in the fall of 2016. Directed and produced by Alison Owen of Brownhouse Entertainment, the video is now available on the band’s YouTube channel and website. Listen to the song and full-length studio album on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
The band’s lead singer, 15-year-old Jameson Hope, wrote “I’ll Be There” in 2015, and the band recorded the song late last year. When they began thinking about creating a music video, it was important to them to show the hard work of first responders. Working with Alison Owen, they developed a video that featured the men and women in uniform that serve their communities every day. According to the band, themes like this support what they value as musicians. They care about spreading positive energy in each of their songs.
The video was filmed in Fort Payne, AL, home of country music group Alabama. Randy Owen of the group Alabama has been very formative for each of the American Hope brothers—which also include 13-year-old Jadyn and 12-year-old Kenyon. The video features various first responders, including representatives of the U.S. Army, local firemen, police officers and sheriffs department.
American Hope has opened for Alabama numerous times at Randy Owen’s Fandemonium on the Farm fan appreciation events, as well as his Dixieland Delight Cattlemen Events. They have also performed with Lee Greenwood and opened for Lisa Kelly, former lead singer of multi-platinum recording group, Celtic Woman. Randy Owen spoke about the boys’ talent during an interview on Suzie Q Luther’s morning radio show on Q97.3/99.3; this recording is available on American Hope’s homepage. The band also gets radio play on American Veterans Radio, It Matters Radio, and various independent internet stations.

About American Hope:
Formed when they were just six, five, and four years old, 15-year-old Jameson Hope (guitar & lead vocals), 13-year-old Jadyn Hope (bass guitar & vocals), and 12-year-old Kenyon Hope (drums) make up country music group American Hope. Over the last eight years, these three brothers have become talented songwriters and musicians, with the guidance of their family, vocal coaches, instrument instructors, and fellow songwriters and singers like Randy Owen, Lee Greenwood, and Lisa Kelly.
American Hope draws inspiration from successful musicians like Keith Urban, Alabama and Florida Georgia Line. Their music reflects these influences, with some pop and rock songs mixed in with classic country ballads. The boys can handle their instruments, as well as their audience. Their first live show was for 2500 people, and they have continued to wow spectators in musical showdowns and festivals throughout Georgia and Alabama with their vibrant, emerging talent. The band’s first self-titled album, recorded at Reveal Audio in Marietta, GA, debuted in the fall of 2016. American Hope plans to record this year and are choosing songs from their abundant inventory to feature on the new album. You can find their latest work on their website, iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon, or look for them live at one of their upcoming shows.
