Jade Eagleson Is Just ‘Neon Dreamin’ (Review)
Jade Eagleson dishes up a slice of ‘90s country perfection. With “Neon Dreamin’,” the singer wonderfully captures the rush of love at first sight through the smokey, amber bar lights. Through the haze, two eyes lock, and it’s an instant connection.
“We started talking, and we were hittin’ it off when I leaned in / And she leaned in back,” he sings, offering up vivid details. “Then, a jukebox song had her saying ‘Come On,’ as she was tugging on my jean jacket sleeve / It’s just too dang good to believe.’
“Neon Dreamin’,” written by Gordie Sampson, Kelly Archer, and Dylan Guthro, shoots for the stars. Love is a crazy little thing, and you can never anticipate when Cupid’s arrow will hit you straight in the heart. He might not have written the song, but he sings with palpable conviction.
“When she walked in, I told the bartender to send one her way,” sings Eagleson with a twinkle in his eyes. “And when she looked over, that Dallas star on her shoulder / From across this double-wide dive / With that look in her eyes, I thought I must be neon dreamin’.”

Boasting millions of Spotify streams – with songs like “Got Your Name on It” snagging 22 million alone – Eagleson is assuredly country music’s next generational star. It’s impressive when you consider he only released his self-titled debut LP three years ago. His second project, Honkytonk Arrival, landed in 2022 and continued his viral success with numerous tracks hitting several million apiece. He’s the real deal.
