Jared Followill

Michael Jared Followill (born November 20, 1986), also known as Jared Followill, is the bass guitarist of American rock band Kings of Leon. He is also the band's pianist. He is the brother to fellow band members, lead singer Caleb Followill and drummer Nathan Followill, and cousin to lead guitarist Matthew Followill. Followill was born to Betty-Ann, John and Ivan Leon Followill, a Pentecostal evangelist minister, who traveled around the American South. He and his brothers, fellow band members Nathan and Caleb grew up travelling with their father, often sleeping in churches, their car or friend's houses, and their mothers Betty-Ann and John taught them when they were not in school. After several years of preaching around the south, their father left the church and Ivan and Betty-Ann divorced. However, Ivan remarried and is now dedicated to the work of the Lord, again. He was asked to join the band when he was 14 years old although he had never played the bass prior to joining the band.
