ARTISTS HONOR GEORGE JONES
Artists including Vince Gill, Mark Chesnutt and Tracy Lawrence will lend their talents to the Category 5 Records CD tribute to George Jones. God's Country ships in mid-October and the debut single is slated to be the title track, performed by Jones courtesy of Bandit Records.

Very cool Maggie. Ya know George gave Vince his nick name. Bet you knew that.

Depends on which of Vince's nicknames you're talking about. George gave Vince the nickname SweetPea, but Marty Stuart nicknamed Vince "Benefit" because of all the charities Vince supports.
Here's a little more detail from Billboard:
Gill will cover "She Thinks I Still Care," while Tillis handles "Take Me" and Lawrence redoes "The One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song)." Kershaw is confirmed to perform the Jones classic "He Stopped Loving Her Today," while Joe Diffie offers a version of "White Lightning."
"God's Country" coincides not only with Jones' impending 75th birthday, but his highly anticipated collaborative album with Merle Haggard, "Kickin' Out the Footlights ... Again."
Jones will be on the road for the rest of the year, with his next show scheduled for Friday (Aug. 4) in Eaton, Ohio.

I know it was Sweetpea. I think that was about the first nickname he had. Maybe Amy has a few for him
But I wouldn't know what they would be

Sounds very good. Guess I'll have to run and get that one too.
It's great that George is still touring. 75, One of God's miracles .
