Who Is Troy Jones? Few Things You Need To Know About Troy Jones
Troy is a songwriter for Carnival Music in Nashville. His songs have been recorded by Alan Jackson, George Strait, Kenney Chesney, Billy Currington, The Oak Ridge Boys and many others.
He received a Grammy nomination for his song People are Crazy which was Number One on the Billboard Chart.
It was also nominated for C.M.A. and A.C.M. song of the year. Troy also had a Number One hit with Pretty Good at Drinking Beer. Shift Work went to Number Two for Kenny Chesney and George Strait.
The theme song of the movie Going Strong was Troy’s song Timing is Everything.
Most TVT patrons will remember Troy’s character “Big Daddy” in the production of Toe Roaster. He and his wife, Patsy live in LA (Lower Alabama!) and have three children and four grandchildren.
Jones met and married his wife, Patsy, and moved to the Sylacauga area in 1977. He worked shifts at the local paper mill, and they started a family.
In the mid-80s on a trip back to Florida, Jones heard up-and-coming performer Randy Travis and got hooked on Travis’ style and emotion of his music. “That really inspired me to start writing songs, to take writing seriously,” Jones said.
Continuing to work at the mill, Jones started writing songs in his spare time, visiting country music nightspots in Montgomery to meet other artists who encouraged him to make a trip to Nashville to test the songwriting waters. He traveled to Nashville’s Bluebird Café, a songwriting mecca where performers and writers mix and mingle, and joined the Nashville Songwriters Association International.
Before long, he accepted a job writing for Polygram Publishing and then Carnival Music while continuing to live and work in Sylacauga, but achieving big success eluded him.
Jones’ admits he got to the point that he was ready to call it quits, but in 2005, he caught the attention of powerhouse country performer Kenny Chesney. Chesney was recording The Road and the Radio and wanted Jones’ song “Like Me” on the album. Although not released as a single, “Like Me” gave Jones the chance to work with a major performer.
