Without a doubt, Lee Ann Womack has the voice of an angel and has the ability to inspire many. We can see that in her signature song, "I Hope You Dance".

During George Jones' 80th Birthday Celebration at the Grand Ole Opry, Womack took to the legendary stage that has been graced by so many iconic artists, including Jones himself. To celebrate his birth, she performed one of his biggest hits, 'Grand Tour'.

'Grand Tour' was released as Jones' title track in 1974. His sixth #1 song, it reached that spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Single chart and also peaked at #2 in Canada. A song about divorce, it is known as one of the finest performances in country music history. The narrator tours his own home, which is now lonely except for the memories left behind that keep him company. He walks by pieces of furniture, telling a fond story about each one. The very end is the kicker. He walks into the empty nursery, confessing that his former love took nothing but the baby and his heart

Womack truly outdoes herself with this one. Jones is a hard act to follow, but her rendition personifies heartache and loneliness, which isn't an easy feat. It is definitely a wonderful tribute to the Possum. 


Step right up, come on in
If you'd like to take the grand tour
Of a lonely house that once was home sweet home
I have nothing here to sell you
Just some things that I will tell you
Some things I know will chill you to the bone

Over there, sits the chair
Where she'd bring the paper to me
And sit down on my knee
And whisper, "Oh, I love you"

But now she's gone forever
And this old house will never
Be the same without the love
That we once knew

Straight ahead, that's the bed
Where we'd lay in love together
And Lord knows we had a good thing going here
See her picture on the table
Don't it look like she'd be able
Just to touch me and say, "Good morning dear"

There's her rings, all her things
And her clothes are in the closet
Like she left them
When she tore my world apart

As you leave you'll see the nursery
Oh, she left me without mercy
Taking nothing but
Our baby and my heart

Step right up, come on in
