Strong, steadfast, and country to his core, Derek Jones is a relentless country-rock outlaw harboring a principled character and deep-rooted respect for people and our nation. After serving in the United States Navy, Jones picked up a guitar and never looked back.
From performing on the Grand Ole Opry to appearing on The TODAY Show, Pickler & Ben, and Good Morning Australia to writing songs for major television outlets including tracks for Sportsman’s Channel’s “Tailgate Adventures” and the theme song for “Fishers ATV World” on the Velocity Channel and NBCsports – Derek Jones has no shortage of drive and determination.
In addition to the 4 years spent touring alongside Billy Ray Cyrus, Jones has shared stages with Charlie Daniels, Trace Adkins, Dwight Yoakam, Ashley McBryde, Jamey Johnson, Whiskey Myers, Phil Vassar and more.
Most recently, Derek Jones celebrated the 2021 release of his EP Last of a Dying Breed, which debuted at No. 3 on iTunes. Rugged, sincere, and hell-bent on reaching new heights, Derek Jones is keeping country music alive.
