About Ben Jones

After the “Dukes of Hazzard,” Ben Jones was selected to the United States Congress from the Fourth District of Georgia and served two terms before redistricting took his seat. Although he then returned to his entertainment career, Jones keeps up with his political interests by appearing as a regular “pundit” on shows such as “O’Reilly” and “Hardball.” He is also a writer, contributing opinion pieces and columns to newspapers and magazines including The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Weekly Standard.

Also a singer, Jones and his “Cooter’s Garage Band” have appeared throughout the United States at concerts, fairs, and festivals. His 6th CD “One for The Younguns” will be released in Fall 2014.

His life story has been profiled in The New York Times, People Magazine, and Life Magazine.
