Chris Jones is a busy guy. On top of his regular gig at Sirius XM and his weekly column at Bluegrass Today, he keeps himself busy writing songs, and recording and touring with his band, the Night Drivers. Sometimes he finds himself combining tasks, writing his column or voicing his Sirius shows from the road.
Tomorrow morning he’ll again merge two of those occupations when he sits on the other side of the microphone on Bluegrass Junction at 8:00 a.m. (EDT). Chris will be interviewed by his Sirius XM cohort Kyle Cantrell, and they’ll spin the debut single (and title cut) from the band’s upcoming Rebel release, Lonely Comes Easy. Previews of a few other tracks is expected as well.
Then tomorrow evening, Jones and crew will head north from Nashville for Cobden, IL where they will commence two evenings of tracking for a future live album at The Old Feed Store. The Bankesters will split the show with The Night Drivers on Saturday night, and Chris tells us that Emily and Alysha Bankester will sit in with the band on stage, as will his charming wife, Sally Jones.
Look for Lonely Comes Easy (the single) to be available on July 23, and the full album on August 27 from Rebel Records.
