Caroline Jones comes into her own, with great strength in her artistry, as she created her own rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s “Big Love” for her upcoming sophomore album.

The ferocious cover rocks with steady passion as it ignites the country-loving heart within Jones. While the heartbreaking anthem falls onto aching lyrics, the rising artist paints the classic with her own color all thanks to a dare from a good friend.

“This arrangement for ‘Big Love’ is based on Lindsey Buckingham’s solo acoustic performances from his live albums,” Jones recently explained. “My good friend and collaborator, Nir Z, showed Lindsey’s solo version to me on tour a few years ago and basically dared me to try to the learn the guitar part! It is incredibly fast, technical, and rhythmically complex. It took me months and months to learn it. During the summer of 2019, Nir and I worked up a live arrangement of the song that incorporates progressive rock elements. The live reaction was explosive. It is very different for me — intense, gritty, dark, and wild.”

“Big Love” comes to fans as the follow-up to Jones’ most recent single, “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable),” which will also be featured on her second full-length release. The track has made a path of its own, establishing Jones even further in her career.

Throughout the past year and a half of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jones has kept her self busy creating and performing live through virtual concerts as a part of Global Citizen and the World Health Organization’s “Together at Home” series.

Fans will get a chance to see Jones perform live on stage at the Seven Peaks Music Festival 2021 in Colorado on September 4. She’ll also open for Zac Brown Band on The Comeback Tour, beginning August 5.
