Biography

Here is some background information on Jason Jones from the Ferris Wheel Songfacts. Florida native Jason Jones was introduced to Country music while driving between Florida and Georgia. After dropping out of Florida State University, he moved to Nashville and joined a band, which performed at the Wildhorse Saloon, and signed to a songwriting contract with Warner/Chappell. His debut single, Ferris Wheel, was included on a six-song digital extended play and released on May 31, 2011.

I grew up in a small town just south of Tallahassee…Wakulla Station. It’s always fun hearing people try to say it right! I come from a family of hardworking truck drivers, raised by my Dad and Stepmom. My parents divorced when I was three so I spent most of my childhood traveling back and forth between Georgia and Florida for holidays, school breaks, etc. I have two older sisters, a younger brother, and a handful of stepbrothers and sisters.

I was a pretty shy and quiet kid who never cared much for being the center of attention. Its amazes me what I chose to do for a living! My dad bought me my first guitar when I was 13. I got to open it early…I’ll never forget that date: December 18th. I quit playing sports after that and made sure to make good grades so I wouldn’t get that guitar taken away.

I can’t tell you how many countless hours I spent on that guitar figuring out songs on the radio and learning how to play by ear, learning how to read and write music. When I was fifteen, I put my first band together in high school.
