Nashville-based writer and editor Jon Freeman has left Rolling Stone. After more than seven years with the company, Freeman’s position was eliminated and his last day was Friday (July 14).
In addition to writing and editing for the publication, Freeman helped to oversee the Rolling Stone Country vertical. He interviewed a wide range of performers from Dolly Parton and Tim McGraw to Jason Isbell and Brandi Carlile. In 2021, Freeman wrote on multiple occasions about the wealth of LGBTQ+ voices in country and roots music.
The Alabama native began his career at MusicRow Magazine, rising from Chart Director to Managing Editor in his nearly eights years at the company. In 2012, Freeman became the Deputy Editor at Country Weekly where he stayed until he joined Rolling Stone in 2015.
