Eli Young Band’s Jon Jones, Wife Sarah Expecting Second Child
Congratulations to the Eli Young Band's Jon Jones! The bassist and his wife Sarah are expecting their second child.
Jones tells Taste of Country that Baby No. 2 is due one day before Thanksgiving; he did not share if the child will be a boy or a girl. Their first child, Hudson Lennon, was born on New Year's Eve 2012. The couple has been together since college; they got married in January of 2011 in Jamaica.
When Jones' second child arrives, he and his EYB bandmates -- Mike Eli, James Young and Chris Thompson -- will have four children four years old or younger between them. Young as a son named Wills, while Eli's daughter, Kline Olivia, born in July of 2012, is the oldest of the four; he tells ToC, "She’s crazy. In a good way.”
The Eli Young Band recently released a brand-new single, "Saltwater Gospel." The song is the debut single and title track of their upcoming album. The group's new record will be their first release with the Valory Music Co. Previously, the group released one album on Universal South and two records and two EPs on Republic Nashville.
The year 2016 has already been a big one for a number of country music families: Among others, LoCash's Preston Brust welcomed his first child, daughter Love Lily, in January; Thompson Square went from a duo to a trio with the birth of son Rigney Cooper Thompson that same month; and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and his wife Cassie celebrated the birth of their new baby boy, Ward Charles Kelley, in mid-February.
