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: Carlile warms hearts with empathetic thoughts – Brandi Carlile, dressed festively with a Santa hat, began her mid-week concert set with Joni Mitchell's "River" and closed with the carol "O Holy Night." In between, she sang about an equal measure of old and new songs. And on this first night of a short acoustic tour, Carlile was both in fine spirits and voice.... »»»
Concert Review: Daniels wears out bows, but music endures – After each of the first few songs Charlie Daniels played, his 'fiddle tech (?)' exchanged his bow. Is this because he was playing particularly hard? Perhaps. Whatever the case, Daniels and his five-piece band clearly appeared to be giving it their all during the act's hour-and-a-half set. As it is the Christmas month, Daniels sang a... »»»
