Jason Jones rides Ferris Wheel to new video

Friday, July 29, 2011 – Jason Jones will premiere his first music video today, July 29 on AOL’s country site, The Boot, for his current single Ferris Wheel.

Directed by Kristin Barlowe and filmed at Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park in Chattanooga, Tenn., the video captures the idea of spending the afternoon at the county fair with your friends and best girl. The video will be available to all other video channels beginning on Monday, Aug. 1. The song from the Warner artist recently debuted on the country singles charts. Ferris Wheel is available now on Jones self-titled digital six pak and will be featured on his forthcoming full-length debut album produced by Brett Beavers (Dierks Bentley). No release date was set

“Making this music video was one of the most fun experiences I have had so far,” said Jones. “I’m not gonna lie, my favorite part was having the entire amusement park to ourselves. We even got to go on the rides without waiting in any lines.”

A native of Wakulla, Fla., Jones is a songwriter, guitarist, and singer, with an alto-tenor voice. Jones is currently out on the road visiting radio and playing shows nationwide in support of the new single with upcoming shows in Sweet Home, Ore. (July 29), Yerington, Nev. (July 30), Spokane, Wash. (Aug. 3), Lewiston, Idaho (Aug. 4) and Great Falls, Mont. (Aug. 5).

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Womack planned a good night – Lee Ann Womack pretty much summed up where she's at these days in concluding her show with Don Williams "Lord I Hope This Day Is Good." The ever-strong voiced country traditionalist sang, "I don't need fortune and I don't need fame" with the concluding line of the stanza asking the Man upstairs to "plan a good day for me.... »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy – Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno. Their new release, "Echoes In The Valley" features mostly songs written by Fleck and Washburn, banjos, Washburn's strong vocals and very little else.... »»»
