George Jones Releases Duets Album
George Jones is releasing a new CD of previously unheard duets with some of music's most legendary acts. 'Burn Your Playhouse Down' includes collaborations with Keith Richards, Mark Knopfler, Dolly Parton, Leon Russell, Shelby Lynne, Jim Lauderdale and Jones' ex-wife, the late Tammy Wynette.
Of the 12 songs on the new project, three were recorded but unused, as part of his 1991 'Friends In High Places' album. Seven of the songs were recorded for his 1994 release, 'The Bradley Barn Sessions.' Keeping it in the family, 'Burn Your Playhouse Down' also includes both a duet with Wynette, recorded in 1977, and one with his daughter, Georgette, the only child from his marriage to Wynette. The CD hits stores Tuesday.
