As critics continue to rave about SAMMY KERSHAW’s new George Jones tribute album, Do You Know Me?, the country music star is now making the album available in vinyl form. The vinyl edition contains two LPs and is available now in select record stores and online at Amazon.com.
“I decided to make this album available on vinyl because it seemed appropriate,” says Kershaw. “Jones released all of his early records on vinyl because there wasn’t any other way to do it. Vinyl gave his records that vintage sound that can’t be replicated so on my tribute to him, I wanted to do the same thing.”
Kershaw tackles some of Jones’ biggest career songs on the 14-track album. The tribute includes Kershaw’s renditions of “White Lightning,” “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes,” “The Grand Tour,” “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and “The Race Is On,” among others. Two all new songs, inspired by Jones, are also included and Kershaw recruited the “Possum’s” daughterGeorgette Jones for the classic duet, “Near You.”
Do You Know Me? was released on July 22 and debuted at #37 on the Billboard Top Country Music Albums Chart, landing Kershaw his first Billboard Top 40 album in more than a decade.
The tribute to Jones is produced by Kershaw and available through his label, Big Hit Records.
