Kris Jones

A pickup truck, a soundtrack and some encouragement from his daughter was all it took for Kris Jones to become one of the first internet stars of 2017. With a voice as smooth as “Tennessee Whiskey,” Jones belted out the tune of the same name while parked in the Home Depot parking lot as his daughter recorded the performance.

The video would go viral and earn the hard-working dad an impressive social media following and appearances on radio and television shows worldwide, including the Emmy Award winning 'The Ellen Show.'
