Biography

Buddy Jones is one of the most interesting, but sadly overlooked, figures of early honky tonk. A police officer from Shreveport, LA, Jones recorded several singles for Decca Records during the late '30s and early '40s before abandoning his musical career. Jones began singing with Jimmie Davis, a fellow Louisiana politician, in 1935, recording a number of duets for Decca over the course of the next year and a half. Jones went solo in 1937, recording with his brother Buster on steel guitar. After releasing a series of singles, which were nearly all risqué honky tonk, Bob Dunn, a former steel guitarist for Cliff Bruner, replaced Buster in Buddy's band. Jones continued to record for Decca until 1945, when he essentially retired from the music business. Buddy Jones died in 1950. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
