Lauded by Rolling Stone as “an ambitious, entrepreneurial guitar heroine primed to bring back the pop- country glory of the nineties,” Caroline Jones is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist enriching the country scene with her unique, independent spirit. Her sophomore album, Antipodes (November 2021), debuted at #4 on the iTunes Country Chart, and its lead single, “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable),” is Jones first Top 40 country hit that is still climbing the charts thanks to its viral TikTok line dance that has been played over 500M times and counting. As with her debut album Bare Feet (August 2017), Caroline co-produced Antipodes with Ric Wake (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston), performed the majority of the instruments, and solo wrote the majority of the tracks. Antipodes also features collaborations with industry heavy-hitters Zac Brown, Joe Bonamassa, Mac McAnally, and Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey.
Caroline’s skilled musicianship and addictive, foot-stomping hits have led to performances on The Tonight Show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, TODAY Show, as well as multiple appearances at the legendary Grand Ole Opry. Perhaps most impressive about Jones young career, though, is the list of mentors who have taken her under their wing and on tour, including Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Jake Owen, Trisha Yearwood, The Eagles, OneRepublic, and most significantly, Jimmy Buffett and the Zac Brown Band. Buffett brought Caroline out on tour in 2018, signed her to a distribution deal with his Mailboat Records, and wrote “Gulf Coast Girl” for her, which he featured along with Kenny Chesney, Mac McAnally, and Lukas Nelson. Following three consecutive years as their staple opening act, Caroline officially joined the Zac Brown Band as a special guest band member in 2021. Highlights with the group include performing at the 2021 CMAs and opening for The Rolling Stones at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Caroline recently rejoined ZBB as a special guest band member for their “Out In The Middle Tour,” which will travel to 34 cities across the U.S. and Canada from April 22 to November 19. The international tour includes stops at several of the nation’s most iconic venues, including Boston’s Fenway Park Chicago’s Wrigley Field, and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl.
