Singer and musician Caroline Jones has joined the Zac Brown Band as a full-time band member, making her the first and only female in the eight-member group.
Jones first opened for Zac Brown Band on their 2017 tour and continued as an opener for the next two years. The band asked her to join their 2021 The Comeback Tour as a guest band member, and welcomed her back as a guest member for their current Out in the Middle Tour. Brown has become a mentor for Jones and is a co-producer on her song “So Many Skies,” featured on her album Antipodes. Jones also previously opened for Kenny Chesney on his 2019 Songs for the Saints Tour and teamed with Chesney and Jimmy Buffett for her song “Gulf Coast Girl.”
Jones shared on social media: “BIG news folks!!!! After 3 years as their opening act and 2 years touring in the band, I am honored to announce that I’ll be joining the @zacbrownband as an official member. Exciting (and busy!) times ahead as I perform and create with ZBB while continuing to build my own career. Thank you all for your support. Playing with ZBB makes me a better musician, vocalist, songwriter, performer, and human. I live for each of those things and I am humbled that they believe I add to the outfit.”
