Jason Jones and Hunter Hayes, Welcome to Country Music

Jason Jones' single, "Ferris Wheel," captures the essence of summer fun

It was only a matter of time before someone wrote a country song about riding on a Ferris Wheel, and country newcomer Jason Jones does a good job with his new single, "Ferris Wheel."

It's the type of song that could put Jones on the map. It has a good rhythm and creative lyrics ("look at our small town spinning around, we've got our feet dangling high off the ground.")

It could be the feel-good song off the summer, but Jones' six-song EP is proof that he'll be more than a one-hit wonder.

"What's That Cowgirl See in Me" is a good tune about a guy who's not from the country, talking about how he's in love with a West Texas cowgirl.

And the ballad, "She Was," might be the best song on the EP.

Hunter Hayes is a country newcomer, but a veteran of the music business. His new single is "Storm Warning."

Hayes, a Louisiana fan, is a Cajun Music prodigy who began playing music, literally as soon as he could walk. Hank Williams Jr. even invited him on the stage during a 1996 music festival in Atlanta, to join him on stage and sing (and play accordion) to "Jambalaya."

If Hayes doesn't make it in country music, he'll have a bright future in Cajun music.
