Chris Jones is a quadruple threat as a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist-and, thanks to his role hosting Sirius XM's Bluegrass Junction, as one of the most widely heard broadcasting voices in bluegrass music. Following apprenticeships with bluegrass legend Dave Evans and Chicago's durable Special Consensus, Chris moved to Nashville in 1989 as a member of the band Weary Hearts, where his colleagues included Ron Block (Alison Krauss & Union Station), Mike Bub (Del McCoury Band, 18 South) and acclaimed mandolin master, the late Butch Baldassari.
