Caroline Jones for Alist Nation

A-list Nation April 2021



Country singer-songwriter Caroline Jones released her new lead single “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable)” off her forthcoming sophomore studio album, expected later this year. Like most of her music, the foot-stomping country single was co-produced and written by Jones, who was also recently named a judge for American Songwriter’s 2021 Lyric Contest. “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable)” is now available to stream and download. “As a songwriter, particularly in country, I was delighted to find a colloquialism “come in and make yourself comfortable” that hadn’t been turned on its ear in songwriting form yet,” said Jones. “I’m always searching for unique and clever turns of phrase. What started as a joke between myself and my recording team then turned into a tongue-in-cheek, empowering rockabilly foot-stomper with a whole lot of sass!” The talented multi-instrumentalist wrote the lyrics as a witty play-on-words with phrases that are filled with flirty innuendos. The hook teases, “Come in, but don’t make yourself comfortable/‘cause I don’t know if I’m gonna like you for long/Come in, but park your truck facing out/‘cause I wouldn’t want to be you when I want you gone”. Also launching today, the studio video for “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable)” brings the sassy lyrics to life and gives an inside look at how the single came together with some of Nashville’s top session musicians. Jones has been working on her sophomore studio album remotely from New Zealand, finding inspiration in the local music scene and breathtaking landscape. Last November, the singer-songwriter teamed up with New Zealand bluegrass group, The Trenwiths, to release a holiday collection called Silver Bells that put an upbeat bluegrass twist on the beloved holiday classics “Silver Bells” and “Winter Wonderland.” Prior to the pandemic, Caroline toured with country icons Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett, The Eagles, Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill and Vince Gill, among others. She teamed up with mentor Zac Brown to co-write her previous single, “All of the Boys,” after touring with the band for three consecutive years. Jones has also worked closely with Jimmy Buffett, who wrote the beachy hit “Gulf Coast Girl” for her featuring himself, Kenny Chesney, Lukas Nelson, and Mac McAnally as “The Pelicanaires.”
