COUNTRY SINGER CAROLINE JONES SPANS GENRES ON NEW EP ALL OF THE BOYS, OUT NOW
The EP Features Multiple New Mixes, from Country to Dance, of New Single
“All of the Boys,” Co-Written with Country Icon Zac Brown
After kicking off 2020 by joining Lee Brice and Sara Evans on tour and making her return to the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage, today country/pop singer-songwriter Caroline Jones released her new EP All of the Boys. A celebration of music for all, the EP features three new versions, across different genres, of Caroline’s new single of the same name. “All of the Boys” was co-written by Jones and country star, mentor and friend Zac Brown, with whom she toured for the past three summers. See full tracklisting below. All of the Boys EP is now available for digital download and streaming here.
The original album version of “All of the Boys” was featured on Jones’ Chasin’ Me EP (October 18, 2019 / Mailboat Records). Though rooted in country, Jones’ appreciation for music spans to all different sounds, which is evident in this EP that includes a Country Mix (remixed by Justin Niebank), Dance Mix (remixed by Andrelli) and a Coffee House Mix (produced by Jones and Ric Wake). The Coffee House Mix premiered today on Sirius XM Coffee House and the accompanying video on American Songwriter.
“‘All of the Boys’ was really fun to co-produce (with Ric Wake) because the song presented an opportunity to blend country/rock elements with synth pop elements. On the surface, the song is very sexy, sassy and fun, but at the core it’s actually a song about commitment. So there are many lyrical layers to play into, musically,” Caroline said. “I love the vibrancy and energy of dance music and have always wanted to reimagine my songs in that style, so I am thrilled to have collaborated with Andrelli on the Dance Mix. The Country Mix highlights the organic instruments that I play in my live show, like banjo and guitar. And then we completely stripped down the song and instrumentation for the The Coffee House mix, which features only upright bass, acoustic guitar, Rhodes piano and brushes on the drums. I am so excited to present these 4 different colors of “All of the Boys” and see how fans connect to them.”
To accompany the EP, Jones also released a visual for the Country Mix, which sees a celebratory collection of BTS footage and clips of Jones performing the single during recent tour dates with Lee Brice and Sara Evans, as well as at her recent return to the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage. Watch the visual here. There are corresponding visuals for each of the other 3 mixes of the song as well, available on Caroline’s social media channels.

ABOUT CAROLINE JONES:
Declared one of Rolling Stone’s “10 Country Artists You Need to Know” as “an ambitious, entrepreneurial guitar heroine primed to bring back the pop-country glory of the Nineties,” singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Caroline Jones co-produced her EP, Chasin’ Me (October 18, 2019/ Mailboat Records), with Grammy and Academy Award-winning producer Ric Wake (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston). The talented independent artist wrote all tracks of the EP except for “Gulf Coast Girl,” written for her by Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally, and “All of the Boys,” co-written with Zac Brown.
Garnering over 7.7 million impressions across platforms, the video for title track Chasin’ Me spent three weeks at the #1 spot on CMT.com’s 12 Pack Countdown and took the #1 spot on Taste of Country’s “Country Video Countdown” for five weeks straight. Last August, Jones made her late-night debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a brand-new rendition of her tongue-in-cheek anthem “Tough Guys,” which is included in the track listing.
Caroline had an impressive 2019 as she toured with Zac Brown Band for the third consecutive year, supported Kenny Chesney’s 21-date Songs for the Saints Tour, joined an all-star female cast in support of Trisha Yearwood’s Every Girl on Your, and rounded out the year with her debut at the iconic Grand Ole Opry. Throughout 2018, Jones toured with Jimmy Buffett & the Eagles, Zac Brown Band & OneRepublic, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Vince Gill, and Kip Moore. Prior to that, she shared the stage with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Toby Keith at the Trying to Reason hurricane relief benefit concert, which led to a charity single release with Buffett, a distribution deal with his Mailboat Records, and ultimately the release of “Gulf Coast Girl (ft. Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Lukas Nelson and Mac McAnally as “The Pelicanaires”)”.
When she is not on the road touring or in the studio, Caroline is also the host of Sirius XM’s Art & Soul where she sits down with musicians from around the world for intimate acoustic performances and conversations about their craft and creating the perfect song.
