Willie Jones (@williejones) is a rising Country/rap artist from Shreveport, Louisiana. Not too long ago, he released his rendition of Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show performer, USHER’s “Omg” single as part of a new “Apple Music Nashville Sessions” EP. Jones sat down for an interview with Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1 to celebrate the release and was featured on the cover of Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist.
In addition to the cover of USHER’s “Omg” song, the EP also features, for the first time, the song that brought Jones into the national spotlight on his iconic X Factor audition, Josh Turner’s “Your Man.” To round out the EP, Jones recorded an Apple Music Sessions version of his newest single “Dive Bar.”
