Featured Video
Caroline Jones, "Come In (But Don't Make Yourself Comfortable"
Mailboat's gifted guitarist and singer/songwriter has been bubbling under for a while, writing with the likes of Zac Brown, touring with The Eagles (among other icons) and recording a song written for her by none other than Jimmy Buffett. She was just getting started, as this rollicking jam amply demonstrates. Jones brings the sass of '90s country-pop into the present, and her fiery riffs are just as stinging as the dismissal she hands the clueless dude in this playful video. Shoot, there's even line dancing!
