McWilley and Jon Jones of the Eli Young Band Talk About Crazy Girl, A New Bus, and Doing Laundry

One perk of working in radio is being able to talk to artist and get an inside look into their lives.

Recently I had the opportunity to talk to Jon Jones the bass player of the Eli Young Band.  I found out that Paul Simon is his favorite song writer and that when he’s not playing with the band, he’s playing his bass for fun or doing laundry. 

Jon: “Paul Simmon is playing at the Ryman tonight…”
