Jewell's version of "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" is a part of a new full length bluegrass CD in the making titled Bluebonnet Highway produced by renowned Nashville musician, vocalist and producer Mitchell Brown.

" and "Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey's Song)" both landed in the Top 5 on the singles chart. Jewell has since followed up with six more albums: Times Like These, Country Enough, I Surrender All, Wanted: LIVE, My Father's Country and Shine
