Duck Dynasty’s Reed Robertson, the son of Jase and Missy Robertson, has left his West Monroe’s home for Nashville to pursue his music career, his mother has announced.
Jase and Missy Robertson’s teenage son is actually a talented musician who landed himself a spot on a tour with American Idol alum Colton Dixon, among others.

If you were able to pick up Duck the Halls, you might remember Reed Robertson as the album’s high point in the tune Camouflage and Christmas Lights.
Reed Robertson boasted a pretty good voice — as well as some guitar skills — which he showed off in a school performance last year.
Missy Robertson wrote on Facebook: “Reed, our firstborn, left the nest for Nashville this morning to follow his dream of music. Jase and I are trusting God to lead him in this endeavor. We’re very proud of how he has chosen to live for Jesus and the risks he is willing to take to pursue this step in his life. Please keep him in your prayers…and us as well. We’ve raised him to leave home, but it’s still hard on this mama.”
