CHICAGO (CBS) – Caroline Jones brings it That girl in the band tour in Chicago, alongside their Zac Brown Band on their Out In The Middle Tour. She recently joined the group as a special guest.
“I’m so excited to be back at Wrigley Field, which is an iconic venue that I had the privilege of playing once before, with Jimmy Buffett when I opened for him,” Jones said.
“This year it’s a little different because I get to play my own show as the Wrigley Field show after-party,” Jones said.
Jones began touring with the Zac Brown Band last year. Before that, she opened for them as a solo artist.
“For the past few years I’ve opened for the Zac Brown Band… for Jimmy Buffett, the Eagles… Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw. I’ve had to open for so many of my heroes and superstars in this kind that I really admire and emulate,” Jones said.
It comes at a unique time for the music industry, with Tik-Tok heavily influencing the charts.
Jones recently went viral with her Top 30 Country song “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable.” The song and its line dance have received over 500 million views on the platform.
“The music industry as we knew it has changed dramatically over the past 15 years and now that growth is exponential thanks to social media and Tik-Tok,” Jones said.
“I think sometimes these days as artists we can focus too much on those quick spurts of popularity and forget that what really makes a career in this industry is the quality and consistency of the art. art and that’s ultimately like our real focus so I’m balancing those two things these days it might be hard but at the end of the day I think we’re free or as artists and we always have been,” Jones said.
Jones and the Zac Brown Band will perform this Saturday at Wrigley Field, followed by Jones’ solo after-show at Carol’s Pub.
