About Chris Jones & The Night Drivers:
Chris Jones & the Night Drivers make some of the most distinctively elegant yet driving bluegrass music heard anywhere today. Deeply rooted in tradition but never bound to it, they deliver original music with tight arrangements, emotional authenticity, and engaging humor. As actor and banjo player Steve Martin says, “Chris Jones’ voice is there with the great masters,” adding that the Night Drivers are “some of the best players in bluegrass.” Collectively, Chris Jones & the Night Drivers have won 16 IBMA awards.
The band’s latest release, their first all-original album, Make Each Second Last, has received rave reviews and has so far yielded six consecutive #1 songs, including the title track "We Needed This Ride." Their latest single, "Bed of Snow," co-written by Chris and grammy nominee Thomm Jutz became the band's 19th #1 song. They have topped both the Bluegrass Today and Roots Music Review airplay charts.
Chris Jones & the Night Drivers are currently signed to one of bluegrass music’s top record labels, Mountain Home Music Company, for whom they’ve recorded three critically acclaimed albums.
A well-established band formed in the mid-1990s, Chris Jones & the Night Drivers have become popular repeat performers at major festivals like Merlefest in North Carolina, California’s Huck Finn Jubilee, and the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. They have filled a wide variety of venues around the world, touring across the U.S. and Canada, and all over Europe, including Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and Ireland. Together with the band and as a solo artist, Chris has released 14 albums.
Not content to rely on their long track record of success, the band continues to grow and change, with two new members joining in late 2019: celebrated bluegrass veteran Marshall Wilborn and exciting newcomer Grace Van’t Hof.
