He played bass in a local band in his home town in Arkansas, and had been working on his song writing skills.
In 1986 he wrote, “Living in the Promiseland”, which became a number one hit for Willie Nelson.
The following year David Lynn Jones released his debut LP, “Hard Times on Easy Street”. Each song on that album was an original composition, and reached top ten with, “Bonnie Jean”, a song he wrote about his truck driving sister. A duet with Waylon Jennings, “High Ridin’ Heros”, was about a rodeo rider Jones knew, another top ten song from the same LP.
