Jonathan is married to Kayce Singleton, who is a graphic designer and owns Boxaloon gift shop in Ashland City. "I love my drive into Music Row every morning. It’s inspiring and beautiful. If you write country music for a living, Cheatham County and Ashland City have proven to be a wonderful home base. David Lee Murphy, Mel Tillis, and Don Williams proved that." ton said. "The woods look the same and the people are the kind I wanted my kids growing up around. I was scared to death of my kids growing up with a 20 square foot yard. Cheatham County checked all the boxes for us when we were looking for a safe place for our boys to become men. We turkey and deer hunt in our back yard and moved our in-laws down the road from us. Those two things are hard to do in East Nashville.
