The Legacy of Floyd Cramer with Grandson, Jason Coleman

Floyd Cramer with Grandson, Jason Colemen - LCCCA reciprocity concert

April 29, 2012
3:00 p.m.

Exciting and Nostalgic Experience
Blessed with talent inherited from his maternal grandfather, legendary keyboardist Floyd Cramer, Jason Coleman has played the piano since he was barely able to reach the keys.

Over time, Jason’s playing style has progressed and matured into an uncanny reflection of the signature stylings of his Grandad, and he currently enjoys entertaining audiences by giving new life to Floyd’s beloved music.

After high school, Jason continued his studies at the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont University in Nashville. In May 2006, he graduated Magna Cum Laude, at the age of 21.

Jason was thrilled to make his Grand Ole Opry debut at age 17, when country music legend Hank Locklin asked him to play the piano for him on the classic song, "Please Help Me, I'm Falling," which Floyd originally recorded with Hank more than 40 years before.

Jason also had the privilege of playing in the studio for what would become Hank’s final recorded album. Undoubtedly, the highlight of Jason’s burgeoning musical career occurred in May 2004, when he was given the honor of playing for the Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony recognizing Floyd’s induction into the Hall of Fame. It was an unforgettable performance with Jimmy Capps and the Opry Band, Hank Locklin, and Maura O'Connell, all in heartfelt tribute to his Grandad's life and legacy.

In recent years, Jason has recorded and produced three of his own solo instrumental albums. In Merry Little Christmas, Legacy, and Faith.
