Our Song of the Day is Down By The Riverside by Willie Jones. Written by Jones, Josh Logan, and Jason Afable, and produced by Jason Afable, Down By The Riverside is an electrifying party anthem that finds Jones embracing his Deep South Louisiana roots and all that he was raised on — from crawfish and cornbread to a two-step shuffle.
Jones says, “This song is straight Louisiana jambalaya: swampy, sexy and drippin’ all over the floor. Jason, Josh and I have great chemistry and this one hits hard from that first harmonica lick and keeps you greasy ‘til the end.”
Jones is known for seamlessly blending hip-hop and country music, paving the way for a genre-expanding sound that’s truly signature to Jones himself. Down By The Riverside is the follow up to his critically acclaimed debut record Right Now, released last January. The record features the poignant patriotic single American Dream, which earned Jones a ‘Video of the Year’ nomination at the 2021 CMT Music Awards.
To date, his songs have garnered more than 51 million on-demand streams and earned him more than 1 million followers across social platforms. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut this past March and is expected to release more new music this year.
