Get out your dancing shoes because it’s a day of celebration for Willie Jones as his highly anticipated album, “Something To Dance To,” arrives today. This musical gem is set to delight fans with its infectious beats and uplifting tunes. MusicRow has already hailed the title track as a “giddy, rhythmic ditty” while Country Now raves about its carefree nature, noting how it joins forces with the power of music to invite listeners to dance in their own unique style.
Jones’ latest offering is a compilation of standout singles that include “Down by the Riverside,” “Get Low, Get High,” “Slow Cookin’,” and more. Each track explores different emotional facets that Jones believes represent every part of him. However, they all revolve around a central theme – finding joy in life’s experiences. The album is a celebration of it all, from the highs and lows to the loves and losses, capturing the essence of being human.
By blending traditional country soundscapes with his signature Louisiana hip-hop gumbo, Jones creates a sonic tapestry that reflects his innovative spirit. The infusion of steel guitar, banjo, and harmonica alongside Jones’ unique style bridges the gap between the Block Party and the Barn Dance, showcasing his ability to create a genre-defying musical experience.
To offer fans an exclusive glimpse into the making of the album, Jones is hosting “Something To Dance To: The Willie Jones Album Experience” at the prestigious National Museum of African American Music in Nashville. This special event, scheduled for today, will be hosted by Marcus K. Dowling, a respected country music journalist from The Tennessean, and Averianna the Personality. Jones will take attendees on a personal journey that inspired the project, revealing insights into his artistic process, from songwriting to production and everything in between. With his trademark swagger, Jones will also take to the stage to deliver high-energy performances of select album tracks. The event is set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. CT, promising an unforgettable experience for all attendees.
But the celebrations don’t end there. On Sunday, Jones will grace the stage at the NMAAM’s Third Annual Bridge to Broadway Block Party, located in the heart of downtown Nashville. This vibrant event, taking place between NMAAM and Bridgestone Arena, is a joyous celebration of culture, music, and heritage. It serves as a testament to Jones’ ability to bring people together through his music, bridging gaps and fostering a sense of unity.
With “Something To Dance To,” Willie Jones invites listeners to embrace the joy and vibrancy of life. His unique blend of musical styles and heartfelt lyrics paint a picture of a man who has overcome obstacles and emerged stronger than ever. So, let the rhythm guide you as you dance to the beat of your own life, and let Willie Jones be the soundtrack to your celebration.
