We would like to tell the story of a man, Kris Jones, who never gives up. And this is truly incredible! 

Jones's childhood wasn't easy at all. He grew up with 4 other siblings in Fort Worth. His mom had to work on 2 jobs to make ends meet. Moreover, he found it challenging to fit into any society because his mom was white whereas dad was black. It wasn't common in the district at all.

As a result, Kris Jones found peace and solace in music. He decided to join the church choir, and his father took him to karaoke quite often, so Kris could show his prominent talent to the audience.

At the age of 17, more problems started to ensue. An incident at his apartment landed him a conviction of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and he spent the next six years in and out of jail. He did fit in there, too.

I was too white or too black for the gangs.

Life after the jail

At 26 y.o. he was released, Kris decided to find a job and create a family. His wife and children were more than enough for him, though he didn't stop singing. His attempts to attend American Idol or The Voice weren't successful. 

However, one day his daughter recorded a video of him singing Tennessee Whiskey. The video went viral, and Kris was invited on Ellen, The Voice, and the Four. He refused all of them because he wanted to go on where it was discovered - the internet. 

Tennessee Whiskey dad's album is climbing up the Top 40 iTunes Country Albums Chart. Impressive, huh?

Ellen Show

February 11, 2017, Kris and his daughter were invited on Ellen Show. It was the very first time he performed on television in front of the great audience.

Jones was so worried to sing that he just couldn't stand firm. It's funny to see how an amazingly talented person is anxious about performing. 

Kris also recorded 5 songs, except for Tennessee Whiskey. He's become one of the loved and recognized people in the USA and the whole world. 

We hope he'll continue to be breathtaking and successful. It's truly inspiring how a person with a bunch of darkest moments finally achieved his goal. Applause to you, Kris!
