Jon Conner’s Country Rap Hits: From the Backwoods to Shameless

When the worlds of television and music collide, magic happens. Such was the case when two of Jon Conner’s electrifying tracks he produced for Big Smo, “Come On” and “Down in the Backwoods,” found their way onto the hit series Shameless. As a country rap producer and co-writer, Conner’s journey to seeing his music featured on one of television’s most beloved shows was nothing short of surreal.

Shameless, known for its gritty portrayal of the Gallagher family’s unconventional life in Chicago, has captivated audiences since its debut in 2011. With its bold storytelling and eclectic soundtrack, the series has become a cultural phenomenon, drawing praise for its authenticity and unapologetic approach to taboo subjects.

For Jon Conner, the opportunity to have his music showcased on Shameless was a dream come true. “It was surreal seeing two songs I produced and co-wrote on one of my favorite shows,” Conner reflects, recalling the moment he learned of the placement. “To have my music complement the narrative of Shameless was an honor beyond words.”

“Come On” and “Down in the Backwoods” perfectly encapsulate the fusion of country and rap that defines Conner’s signature sound. With infectious beats, catchy hooks, and lyrics that speak to the rural experience, these tracks provided the perfect backdrop to the Gallagher family’s escapades on-screen.
