And Along Came Jones is an album by American country music singer George Jones. This album was released in 1991 on the MCA Nashville Records label. Music videos were made for the tracks, "You Couldn't Get The Picture" and "She Loved a Lot in Her Time." Those two songs being made into music videos caused MCA to have George make a music video to nearly every song they released to radio as a single during the next 5-6 years. Jones ended a long association with Epic Records and producer Billy Sherrill in 1990 when he jumped ship to MCA Nashville Records and Kyle Lehning.

And Along Came Jones spent 10 weeks on the Billboard 200, peaking at #148. It was Jones's first solo album on the chart in a decade, and he would follow with six more in the 1990s. The album's success was also a result of his new label's powerful promotion team.
