Conversations with Missy: Jesse Dayton

by Missy Wolf / 2819 days ago / Comments

From musician to actor, producer, director, and everything in between, Jesse Dayton is more than just a "triple threat" in the entertainment industry. 

Having experiences with legends such as Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings early in his career, it is not hard to see why these men have influenced much of his music. Listening to Dayton recall some special moments that would make anyone who heard them jealous, I could not help but feel the excitement myself. I simply cannot imagine the level of shock and pure adrenaline that he must have felt. I know that reading what took place is simply not enough, so you need to watch our full conversation now for the intimate details of that memorable experience.

Speaking with Dayton about his film Zombex was exciting. His movie experiences also include working with Rob Zombie on projects such as Halloween 2. Having the knowledge he has for movies and music has enabled Dayton to build a cult following. His unique style and personality satisfy the cravings of die hard old school country fans as well as new country music fans. Listen to Dayton explain why music has no boundaries. 

Having his own label (Stag Records) since 2002 has allowed Dayton the opportunity to record and release several CD's including a live recording and soundtracks for two of Zombie's movies. Having developed a cult following known as the "Hardchargers" is just one of the many successes that Dayton has experienced in his thriving music career.

This Austin, Texas musician with a passion for horror films is showing no signs of slowing down. As you see in our on-camera interview, we caught up with Dayton in his RV while on the road touring with songs from his latest release The Revealer. Go grab your copy now. My favorite song on this album is; "Daddy Was a Badass". What is next for this down-to-earth and driven entertainer? Follow him on social media to find out. ~Missy

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
