The Official Website of Smilin' Jim Eanes


Welcome to the jimeanes.com website. This site has been established by the family of legendary country and bluegrass artist Jim Eanes. The reason we developed the site is to allow those who remember Jim to find his most current personal information and music genealogy.

We are grateful to all who have provided historical and discography information to make this site the most accurate record of his history and music. We welcome anyone who have information to enhance the relevance of this site to contact us at jeanes22@gmail.com.

My daughter and I manage the content of the site as updates arrive.

Thanks to two individuals who have offered valuable information to the sites accuracy. Eddie Stubbs, former Johnson Mountain Boy and WSM DJ has been a historical resource that has proven to be extremely valuable. Most recently, Henk Scholts provided a huge amount of data for dad’s music discography.

Please feel free to reach out to us. We never get tired of hearing from his fans. This helps keep his memory alive.

If you wish to record any of his music, we can provide mechanic licensure for your recording projects.

Take care and thanks for visiting jimeanes.com!

Jimmy and Jessica Eanes
