New Album From Late Country Great George Jones Set For Release
On September 10, two days before what would have been his 82nd birthday, Bandit Records will release George Jones – Amazing Grace. Jones recorded all the gospel songs on the album in 2002 with producer Billy Sherrill with the exception of "Great Judgment Morning," which was produced by Brian Ahern in 1994. "Great Judgment Morning" includes vocals by Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter, Travis Tritt, Ricky Skaggs, Marty Stuart and Connie Smith.
The Sherrill-produced songs were the final sessions between Jones and Sherrill. Jones coaxed Sherrill out of retirement to assist in his Gospel Collection.
Amazing Grace was already planned for release before Jones' death in April. According to a press release, Jones was "reverential in his approach to singing sacred songs and didn't believe vocal theatrics should be involved." more on this story
