“Diana Jones writes songs which she sings in such a haunting high lonesome that one can’t help but wonder if she isn’t the lost daughter of the Carter Family.” -Ann Patchett, New York Times

One of Americana music’s biggest champions, Songs:Illinois introduced me to yet another special singer-songwriter living in Nashville. Her name is Diana Jones.

Diana’s new release Better Times Will Come will be released on Proper Records later this month. Guest artists on the record include Nanci Griffith, Betty Elders, Mary Gauthier and Ketch Secor.
