"Letter from Wayon Jennings official website"

Dear C.C.,

Congratulations on a job well done with your new CD. All of us here at Waylon.com enjoyed hearing it. My co-worker said it made her feel like she "should have a pool cue in one hand and a beer in the other." I think that is a relatively positive compliment coming from someone who knows Waylon fans. David, who runs the website and was on the road with Waylon for over ten years, said he thought it had major potential and it was something Waylon himself would have enjoyed.

Again, I'd like to thank you for sending us a copyof your CD. I think, you're very talented, and gearing towards a particularly receptive audience. Please let us know if there is anything we could do to help you along your career path. We may be adding a section for original Waylon-like music on the website, and you;ll be the first to hear about it.

May you do well in all your ventures,

Alyson,

Bio

* THE C.C. JONES STORY *

Approximately thirty-four min after C.C. Jones put his lips to the mic to record his first song, the power in the Northeastern United States and Lower Canada shut down for twenty-nine hours.

Occurrences like these would prove to be 'not out of the regular' for Jones.

Growing up in southern Mississippi, C.C. perfected his craft by hanging out in juke joints, blues clubs and grocery stores. It wasn't so much that Jones was studying the musicianship of these players; it was more about, well he would say 'the women and the booze', but we'll call it experiencing all, he thought, southern life had to offer.

'Right around the age of, I dunno say twenty-two er twenty-three I fell on hard times. I was livin' in the Lincoln, and none of my women were havin it.' C.C. lived in his car for a good part of the late nineties. 'Thought I might move to the city durin' those times but then I listened to Lynyrd Skynyrds "I'm a country boy". You see I had an 8-track in the Lincoln, well I heard that song and I changed my mind... hell, it changed my life... I guess it was that very same night, when I first decided to put pen to paper. I wrote "MURDERIN' HEATHEN" that night. Yup, wrote it right there in the Lincoln usin' the light of the glove compartment. My main girl, Sally, was the first to read it. She said it was "cute"; what I wanted to do, really, was belt her one, but I kissed her instead.'

Sally must have seen something in those lyrics and in C.C. himself. After that night she asked him to move in with her.

'Being with her at that time was good. It was REAL good for about 3 weeks. I wrote 'If YOU LEFT ME' during that time. Used her guitar and tape machine; guess you could say I wrote for her.'

C.C. is reluctant to acknowledge the fact that Sally was the one to convince him to perform his songs live. It was at a frequent haunt of his called the 'BULLET BAR' that Jones took to the stage for the first time. He opened up with 'IF YOU LEFT ME' and he dedicated it to 'the one who let me borrow her guitar'... he pointed to Sally. By the end of the second verse the jeers and laughter from his friends quickly subsided. C.C. followed it up with 'MURDERIN' HEATHEN'.

'Well I guess you could say the drink started flowin' again and in a way I guess C.C. JONES was born.'

C.C. is currently seeking management/label representation.
