Keeping the Joneses up

Smash Hits

George Jones, former husband of Tammy Wynette, is one of the most respected names in country music but things haven't been going too well for him of late. What with his D.I.V.O.R.C.E. and his drinking problem, his recording career was at an all time low until somebody hit on the idea of doing an album of duets with some of George's biggest admirers.

The results can be found on a new Epic record called My Very Special Friends on which George croons with such luminaries as Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, two of the guys from Doctor Hook and ex-wife Tammy. High spot, however, is a version of "Stranger In The House" with its author, Elvis Costello. Elvis has been an admirer of George's for a long while.
