George Jones, Tammy Wynette and Daughter Georgette

George Jones singing The Grand Tour, one of the best country music songs ever written.

Norro Wilson wrote some great songs in Picture Me Without You and Most Beautiful Girl in the World, but to me his best song was The Grand Tour which was recorded by George Jones and Aaron Neville. The song was released two years before the divorce of George Jones and Tammy Wynette. However, the words to the song  fit well when they were divorced.

Anyone who has been divorced and had to leave a baby with their spouse, can’t help but be touched by this song. This is country music at its best. Divorced couples can relate to this song, since it tells of the hurt that is felt by the one that has to leave the home, they lived in for so long.

Only George Jones can sing this song the way it was meant to be sung. He sings with such emotion, that you feel like he has lived the words of this song.

It is touching to see George and Georgette Jones singing a duet, after his divorce from Tammy Wynette with Tammy in the audience.  It has now been 36 years since the divorce. He is now married to Nancy Sepulvado, whom he married in 1983 and they are still married 28 years later. Coincidentally, 1983 was also the year he released his last No.1 hit in I Always Get Lucky With You.
