NASHVILLE (AP) — Sammy Kershaw says when he wanted to remake a George Jones and Tammy Wynette song, there was no other choice but to ask their daughter.

Georgette Jones will sing with Kershaw on a remake of “Near You.”

She says Kershaw had a special bond with her father and his voice is the closest one she knows to her father’s.

Kershaw will put out an album of George Jones songs called “Do You Know Me? A Tribute To George Jones” on July 22.
