Watch Caroline Jones’ New Video for “Gulf Coast Girl,” Featuring Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett & More

Caroline Jones may have some complex musical skills—guitar, banjo, mandolin, Dobro, keys and lap steel—but if you want a simple look at who she is as an artist, check out her new song, “Gulf Coast Girl,” which features Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett, Lukas Nelson and Mac McAnally (aka The Pelicanaires).

Co-written by Buffett and McAnally specifically for Caroline, “Gulf Coast Girl” embodies the always-sunny, laid-back attitude of Caroline’s life in West Palm Beach, Fla.

“It was an honor to have such iconic and respected artists write this song for me and have the opportunity to collaborate with them on it,” says Caroline. “I have known Mac for almost 10 years now, and have had the privilege of going out on tour with both Jimmy and Kenny. They have all become friends and mentors, which I am grateful for.”

Caroline, who is currently on the road with Zac Brown Band, opened for Kenny during his recent Songs for the Saints Tour.

Directed by Stan Kellam, the new video for “Gulf Coast Girl” was filmed in sunny locations along Gulf Shores, Mobile, Apalachicola, Destin, Pensacola, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Biloxi, Galveston, New Orleans and more.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
