Demun Jones
DEMUN JONES has always had a way of keeping it real when it comes to the music he has written, recorded and performed throughout his career, but, that said, JONES COUNTY might well be the most genuine collection of songs that represents who the Georgia native is and certainly illustrates the place where he's lived his entire life.

Asked how the songs for his forthcoming solo project came about, Demun said, "I went out in my front yard and imagined what are they doing? What are they thinking? What are they going to do? What do I see?"

Life in Jones County, which is just north of Macon, is southern and some, including the Jones family, will say they're rednecks. They drive trucks. They fish and hunt. They like keeping things simple—sort of a what-you-see is what-you-get type of place. All the same, Jones County is what you hear and Demun is hoping people who are from there will respect and love his latest collection of 12 songs, while people who aren't from around those parts will be "captivated by it and want to listen to it."

Demun – a nickname he earned at a young age because he was aggressive and energetic – was 10 years old when he was transfixed by the immergence of N.W.A. and how they represented their own hometown. He's never forgotten how that seminal album affected a southern boy down in Georgia. He's always wanted to do the same for Jones County.

Charlie Farley
Arkansas born, Arkansas Proud.
Nashville may be country, but home is the backwoods and dirt roads of DeQueen, AR.
That's where you will find Charlie.
A fluke submission on the internet landed Charlie a record deal. In less than a year; Charlie had released his Debut CD "Hog Heaven" and had the industry buzzing about his new breed of "country rap", and then... he. left What?
Zero to turbo had left Charlie with no balance. Concerned about his children, his family, and not being able to process the intensity or speed of the growing spotlight, he decided to retire from the music industry.
While home life became normal again, the desire to create and grow as an artist with no outlet had flipped the switch in the opposite direction. Music is soul food and Charlie was starving. Again, no balance. Determined to be both a father and artist, Charlie decided to make his career fit his life. Coming to terms with the need to be present in both family and music, Charlie is taking his career in his own hands. The result... a more open relationship with his label, a balanced home for his kids, and taking the music to where he has never taken it before.
