On Friday, country-pop artist Caroline Jones released the official video for her emotional new song, “Not Love,” off her sophomore studio album “Antipodes.”
Her team said, “ ‘Not Love’ is an honest track that talks about the ‘almost the one’ relationships where both people love each other, but know deep down that there are bigger dealbreakers that they can’t ignore.”

“ ‘Not Love’ was shot in New Zealand during my seven-month stay there in 2020-2021, during which most of my sophomore album ‘Antipodes’ was recorded,” Jones said. “ ‘Not Love’ is a very emotional, honest song about a challenging relationship in which both people keep conflicting, but ultimately do love each other. These ‘almost the one’ relationships can be the most heartbreaking, because the love that is present and real only makes the dealbreakers in the relationship that much more difficult to ignore. I honestly don’t know if this is a sad song or a happy one!”
“Not Love” is featured on Jones’ recently released album, “Antipodes,” which debuted at No. 4 on the iTunes country chart. The album also features her first Top 40 hit, “Come In (But Don’t Make Yourself Comfortable),” which has become a TikTok sensation with its viral line dance that’s racked in over 270 million views and counting. Watch her perform the single on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” here.
Up next, Jones will rejoin Zac Brown Band as a special guest band member (and only female!) for their upcoming “Out in the Middle Tour,” kicking off April 22. She first opened for Zac Brown Band on their 2017 tour and, following three consecutive years as their staple opening act, officially joined the band as a special guest in 2021.
Jones is a singer, songwriter and multiinstrumentalist enriching the country scene with her unique, independent spirit.
As with her debut album, “Bare Feet” (August 2017), Jones co-produced “Antipodes” with Ric Wake (Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston), performed the majority of the instruments, and solo wrote the majority of the tracks. “Antipodes” also features collaborations with industry heavy-hitters Brown, Joe Bonamassa, Mac McAnally, and Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey.
Jones has performanced on “The Tonight Show,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and “Today,” and has multiple appearances at the legendary Grand Ole Opry. Perhaps most impressive about Jones’ young career is the list of mentors who have taken her under their wing and on tour, including Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Jake Owen, Trisha Yearwood, The Eagles, OneRepublic, and most significantly, Jimmy Buffett and the Zac Brown Band.
Buffett, notorious for having no openers, brought Jones out as an opening act and special guest in 2018 and 2019, which was followed by a distribution deal with his label, Mailboat Records, for the release of her debut album – and the release of “Gulf Coast Girl” featuring Buffett, Chesney, McAnally and Lukas Nelson. The breezy summer track, which was written specifically for Jones by Buffett and McAnally, debuted at JazzFest in 2019 and quickly became a hit on SiriusXM’s “The Highway,” helping the video reach nearly 2 million views – and counting.
Highlights with ZBB include performing at the CMAs and opening for The Rolling Stones at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium. In 2022, Jones will reunite with ZBB as a special guest on tour – performing at Citi Field, Fenway Park, Hollywood Bowl and Wrigley Field, among other anticipated highlights – while popping up at key festivals and headlining her own shows in support of “Antipodes.”
