Friday 8th March 2019
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Caroline Jones coproduced her album, Bare Feet (March 30/ Mailboat Records), with Grammy and Academy Award-winning producer Ric Wake (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Trisha Yearwood). Upon release, Bare Feet rose to #16 on Country Albums Chart and #14 on iTunes Country Albums Chart. The album features “Tough Guys,” which spent six weeks at #1 on CMT.com’s 12 Pack Countdown. Rolling Stone named her one of the “10 Country Artists You Need to Know” as “an ambitious, entrepreneurial guitar heroine primed to bring back the pop-country glory of the Nineties” and Billboard called her one of the “15 Country Artists to Watch in 2018”. Throughout 2018, Caroline is touring with Jimmy Buffett and the Eagles, Zac Brown Band and OneRepublic, and Tim McGraw & Faith Hill. In 2017, she was on the road with Zac Brown Band and shared the stage with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith at the Trying to Reason hurricane relief benefit concert. A live duet with Buffett led to a charity single release and ultimately, a partnership with his Mailboat Records. Caroline previously toured schools & universities nationwide – including underserved and charter schools with Stedman Graham – on The Heart is Smart School Tour. Caroline is the host of Art & Soul on Sirius XM.
