George Jones

God’s Country

Red River Entertainment

Red River Entertainment has released ‘God’s Country: George Jones and Friends.’ The 10-song collection features some of country’s biggest stars re-interpreting Jones’ greatest hits. The album was originally available in a limited release in 2006 via Category 5 Records, which subsequently closed. It has been commercially unavailable since. Recorded with Jones’ participation, the collection features some of contemporary country’s greatest voices — including Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Joe Diffie andTracy Lawrence — singing Jones’ classics, as well as Jones himself on ‘God’s Country’ and ‘Beer Run,’ a duet with Garth Brooks. “Nobody in the world sings like George Jones, and nobody can sing like him,” says Gill in a press release. “Without George Jones we wouldn’t have anything we have today,” Lawrence adds
