Born the daughter of the iconic country singer Alan Jackson, Mattie Jackson Selecman describes her life growing up as richly blessed. In her 20s, she met her soon-to-be husband, Ben Selecman. The couple got married and were preparing for a life together. That’s when tragedy shattered everything about the world Mattie had envisioned.
Here on Trevor Talks, we have the honor of hearing from Mattie about the pain, grief, and ultimate hope that she has found while walking through the loss of her husband after just 11 months of marriage. You’ll quickly get to know her as a passionate person relentlessly dedicated to finding the purpose in pain. She’s done that through her clothing brand initiative, NaSHEville, which supports the restoration of survivors of human trafficking. Most recently, she’s done that through her new book Lemons on Friday and the accompanying song “Racing the Dark'' (written with her father, Alan Jackson).
Mattie’s story has been featured by outlets like People, Taste of Country, and American Songwriter. Listen to this episode to find out why the story she freely and vulnerably offers resonates with so many people in their own deepest place of pain.
