Rolling Stone Country, People Country and Country Weekly Get Story Behind The Album
As Told By Jones
"Jones' newly sober, newly single life has led to some of the most introspective music in his catalog, as he approaches not only performing but also songwriting in a sharper light."
– Beville Dunkerley, Rolling Stone Country
"By mixing his honest songwriting with various instruments, Jones proves himself as a solo artist and holds nothing back on his first release."
– Valerie Hammond, Nashville Lifestyles
"The Healing runs the gamut of human emotions. There's fun, sadness, mixed in with optimism and in some cases, regret. But, with each track you get the feeling that Jones has lived each word he's singing."
– Chuck Dauphin, Billboard
