Sammy Kershaw credits the late George Jones for being his inspiration and for achieving his dreams in country music, and now the singer is releasing a tribute album in Jones’ memory. ‘Do You Know Me — A Tribute to George Jones’ is now available, and includes some of Jones' biggest hits, such as ‘White Lightning,’ ‘The Race Is On’ and ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today.’
Two all new songs, inspired by Jones, are also included. Kershaw also got Jones’ daughter, Georgette Jones, to join him for the classic duet of, “Near You.”
Sammy is still in fine voice and, overall, this album does him and George Jones justice. Even his daughter, Georgette, agrees; “Sammy has always been one of my favorites and he's also the closest voice I know to my dad's. I'm so thrilled he's done this tribute and it was a huge honor to record this duet with him. He had a special bond with my dad, and I know he'd be so proud."
