Zac Brown Band’s rockstar multi instrumentalist may have been born in the city, but she’s about as country as it gets! 🙂 Caroline Jones was born in New York City, attended school in NYC, and even attended NYU. At the age of 9 she began taking singing lessons then began learning to play other instruments such as guitar, piano, dobro, banjo, and mandolin. At the time, she gravitated towards pop, rock and R&B. It wasn’t until she took a trip to Nashville in her mid teens that stirred her passion for Country Music. Soon after, she saw the light and converted. 🙂
After building momentum from releasing her own albums independently, she signed a record deal with Jimmy Buffett’s record label Mailboat Records. Since 2017 Caroline opened for Zac Brown Band a number of times and in 2022 she became an official member of the multi-platinum GRAMMY-Award winning band.
Caroline Jones has been listed as one of 15 country artists to watch by Billboard, one of the 10 need to know new country artists by Rolling Stone, and 10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now by Rolling Stone.
