Demun Jones Releases Debut Album “Jones County” & New Video for “Tannerite”
Georgia native and former member of the chart-topping duo Rehab, Demun Jones, has premiered his new video for “Tannerite” online at http://www.blastro.com/player/demunjonestannerite.html?detect_bitrate=_2000. The video was produced by Georgia-based Signal Point Studios and features Demun off in the woods hunting a real life Sasquatch. Demun Jones’ debut album “Jones County” is now available on Average Joes Records.
"Jones County is where I was raised," Demun Jones said. "Of all the places I've traveled throughout my career, I've never considered moving anywhere else. I know folks from all over the world, and not many are so tied to one spot. I wanted to hold up Jones County for the whole world to see and to remind my folks here to be proud of what we have. Jones County is special."
“Jones County,” named after the Georgia county from which Jones hails, not only illustrates his evolution as an artist by infusing his country inspired lyrics with hip-hop grooves, but reveals a bit of his personal growth, as well. “Boondocks” is a tune that’s all-too familiar to Jones and the people of Jones County, Georgia. “Tannerite” is Jones’ take on a fictional tale of what happens when some southern boys are playing with explosives and what occurs when they happen upon Bigfoot. Perhaps the most personal song on the album is “I’m A Man” which describes in detail the years of honest, ethical, hard work lived by Jones’ father, Ricky, a life-long brick mason. The album is now available on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/jones-county/id873301284.
Demun Jones has been turning heads with his new video for the track "The Muddy Muddy," which can be seen here. The song was released on the "Mud Digger 4" compilation album, and has since racked up 200,000 views online. "The Muddy Muddy," also included on “Jones County,” has quickly become an anthem for those who like big trucks and getting a little dirty.
