Trace Adkins' single "Jesus and Jones" is his first song back after checking himself into Rehab in 2014 for alcohol dependency. The song was written by Jim McCormick, Casey Beathard, and Tyler Farr.

This song could be compared to “Heart of Darkness” and touches upon the struggle between a man’s personal battle between good and evil. Trace Adkins compares his own life and that of George Jones in the track “Jesus and Jones.”

The corresponding music video was directed by Peter Zavadil and filmed in the small town of Eagleville, Tennessee. In an interview about the song, Trace stated, “It’s just the story of my life. I’ve struggled with the same kinds of things other people have struggled with, trying to figure out where you fit on that spectrum between the church pew and the bar stool. It’s something I’ve had to deal with for a long time. And so did George.”

“Jesus and Jones” Lyrics

I’m the last one standing’ every Saturday night
All the rights feel long, wrongs feel right
But every Sunday morning I see the light again
When I’m up on the wagon I’m a helluva saint
But I’ll be damned if there ain’t another town to paint
Just down the road man it’s a game that I can’t win.

I need to find a little middle ground
Between let her rip and settling down
But I go from dry to drowned, lost to found
Stone cold sober to just plain stoned
Trying to live like my heroes did
Is the hardest kind of livin’ there is
Been a tug o’ war since I was a kid between Jesus and Jones.

I Wish I could find a gear between
“White Lightning” and John 3:16
But girl I can’t promise anything right now
All I can say is I wanna change
And I’ll keep the faith that you’ll take the reins
And hold on tight and calm this crazy down.

I need to find a little middle ground
Between let her rip and settling down
But I go from dry to drowned, lost to found
Stone cold sober to just plain stoned
Trying to live like my heroes did
Is the hardest kind of livin’ there is
Been a tug o’ war since I was a kid between Jesus and Jones.

I need to find a little middle ground
Between let her rip and settling down
But I go from dry to drowned, lost to found
Stone cold sober to just plain stoned
Trying to live like my heroes did
Is the hardest kind of livin’ there is
Been a tug o’ war since I was a kid between Jesus and Jones.
