How does someone get from Fox Island River, Newfoundland (pop. 198) to Nashville? The best person to ask is Jason Benoit, one of Canada’s fastest rising country stars. With his undeniable talent as a singer/songwriter, combined with his magnetic stage presence and devotion to his growing fan base, Benoit has already defied the odds.
Jason recently found his Indigenous, Mi'kmaq heritage.
