Chris Jones & The Night Drivers Release "Lonely Comes Easy"

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Chris Jones and The Night DriversCharlottesville, VA -- Following the chart-topping success of 2012’s “Final Farewell,” the wry humor of “If That Was Love” and the broad comedy of their version of C. W. McCall’s tongue-twisting “Wolf Creek Pass,” Chris Jones & The Night Drivers returned with a new single—the title track of their forthcoming Rebel Records release, “Lonely Comes Easy.”

Available to consumers at iTunes, Amazon and other online music stores, the single recasts the song— written and first recorded by Jones on his country-flavored Too Far Down The Road (2006) — in a bluegrass vein, sketching through telling details the portrait of a man and his not-so-swinging bachelor pad. Instrumental work is provided by the Night Drivers, while IBMA Momentum Award Vocalist of the Year Emily Bankester joins Night Driver Mark Stoffel on harmonies.

The full Lonely Come Easy album, which features a rich trove of original material contributed by all of the Night Drivers, is slated for an August 27th release. It’s the first in four years to feature almost all new songs, and follows the mostly retrospective Lost Souls & Free Spirits: The Rebel Collection.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
