– With gritty, grizzled powerhouse vocals, bold songwriting talent and a
dynamic live show, singer-songwriter Derek Jones continues breaking the
mold as a new artist with his new EP, Pray, available today. (CLICK HERE to purchase Pray)

A true road warrior, Jones spent hundreds of miles on the road playing
in honky tonks, fairs and even packed arenas, opening for international
country music icon Bill Ray Cyrus. Recently, Jones made his national
television debut on “Picker & Ben,” performing “Some Gave All” with Cyrus. Later this month, Jones will travel to Australia to open several more shows.

Jones built his eager fan base while developing his trademark, patriotic
songs after serving as a US Navy Veteran in Iraq. When Jones returned
from overseas in 2003, he picked up a guitar and never looked back.

Since then, Jones has been writing and recording for Pray, which features two tracks Cyrus co-wrote.

“This record has been a long time coming and I’m so stoked to have
worked with such amazing people on this! My good buddy, Billy Ray Cyrus,
and I worked together on a few of the songs and I cannot wait for y’all
to put your ears on this! This is one that I’m extremely proud of
couldn’t be more happy with the end results,” says Jones.
