ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Founder and front man of The Night Drivers, Chris Jones is a quadruple threat as a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist—and, thanks to his role hosting SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction, as one of the most widely heard broadcasting voice in bluegrass. His immediately recognizable voice, warm sense of humor and abundance of talent have combined to make him one of the music’s most distinctive personalities, and one of its strongest artists.

Following apprenticeships with bluegrass legend Dave Evans and Chicago’s durable Special Consensus, Chris moved to Nashville at the end of the 1980s as a member of the band Weary Hearts, where his colleagues included Ron Block (Alison Krauss & Union Station), Mike Bub (Del McCoury Band, 18 South) and acclaimed mandolin master, the late Butch Baldassari. Forming The Night Drivers in the mid 1990s, he’s led the band through a set of stellar recordings and tours while appearing and recording with some of the world’s most respected musicians including The Chieftains, Earl Scruggs, Vassar Clements and Tom T. Hall. And while The Night Drivers have made extensive use of his original songs, they’ve also been recorded by a range of other artists, including the Gibson Brothers, Lou Reid & Carolina and The Chapmans.

Chris’ range of talents took center stage at the IBMA’s Awards Show in 2007, where he earned both a Song Of The Year award as a co-writer of “Fork In The Road,” the title track of the year’s Album Of The Year by The Infamous Stringdusters, and the organization’s Broadcaster Of The Year trophy. The occasion marked the first time that both music and industry awards have gone to a single person. Chris has won a total of five IBMA awards.

Since then, Chris has continued to draw attention for all aspects of his multi-faceted career:

In 2012, he and The Night Drivers had the #1 song for the entire year in bluegrass radio airplay, a song he co-wrote with bassist Jon Weisberger, “Final Farewell.”

"Live at the Old Feed Store" is their first live CD as a band, and captures the tightness, spontaneity, humor and soul of a typical CJ & ND performance. Musically, Live At The Old Feed Store features originals like “Battle of the Bands” (the album's single co-written by Night Driver Jon Weisberger and previously recorded by Chris for The 1861 Project), “Like a Hawk” and “Follow Your Heart”, the latter of which was co-written by Chris Jones and features guest vocalist Sally Jones. The album also offers concert staples like "Bound To Ride," "Cabin Of Death" and "Edelweiss," along with a new version of a George Jones song ("I Cried Myself Awake") that Chris first recorded more than 20 years ago as a member of the Special Consensus. Emily Bankester of The Bankesters is also a guest on the original song “Then I Close My Eyes.” The album was recorded at one of the band's favorite intimate venues, the Old Feed Store in Cobden, IL, on two successive nights in the summer of 2013 and mixed by Mark Stoffel.

Actor/director/comedian/banjo player Steve Martin said of their previous release, the award-winning "Lonely Comes Easy": “A haunting, silky-smooth CD by some of the best players in bluegrass. Chris Jones’ voice is there with the great masters, and The Night Drivers should no longer be driving at night, but playing music 24/7.”
