Willie Jones Dances With Snakes And Angels Through The Bayou In New “Down By The Riverside” Video Out Now
Willie Jones proves he is pure Louisiana-bred country with his new “Down by the Riverside” video, out now. Directed by Jay Curtis Miller in New Orleans, Louisiana, Jones gives fans a glimpse of his southern culture and charismatic energy, taking viewers on a rowdy boat trip through an alligator-infested river, line-dancing across the bayou with ball pythons and his cajun crew.

“Down by the Riverside” is Jones’ first music release since signing with Sony Music Nashville in partnership with The Penthouse and showcases his ability to “slide expertly between traditional country flourishes, R&B inflections and hip-hop patterns in two different octaves” (NPR).
He performed the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this month, here: youtu.be/BP1Kww8ekTQ
