Many artists helped pay tribute to George Jones's career during the George Jones And Friends 50th Anniversary Tribute Concert in 2007.

Country artists took the stage to perform his greatest hits including "The Grand Tour", "She Thinks I Still Care", "Tennessee Whiskey", "He Stopped Loving Her Today", and many more! 

One surprising singer on the lineup was Uncle Kracker, who is known for his country-rock-rapping. He went traditional country for his performance of Jones' "Window Up Above" and completely blew everyone away.

"Window Up Above" was released by Jones in 1960 and peaked at #2 on the country charts. The song, which Jones has said is his greatest compilation, is said to come directly from a lifelong insecurity of his and addresses the theme of adultery. 

Uncle Kracker's performance earned him a standing ovation from the audience who seemed to be in awe of his surprising vocals.

Lyrics Below

I've been living a new way
Of life that I love so
But I can see the clouds are gathering
And the storm will wreck our home

For last night he held you tightly
And you didn't even shove
This is true for I've been watching
From the window up above

You must have thought that I was sleeping
And I wish that I had been
But I guess it's best to know you
And the way your heart can sin

I thought we belonged together
And our hearts fit like a glove
I was wrong for I've been watching
From the window up above

From my eyes the teardrops started
As I listened on and on
I heard you whisper to him softly
That our marriage was all wrong

But I hope he makes you happy
And you will never lose his love
I was wrong, I was watching
From the window up above

How I wish I could be dreaming
And wake up to an honest love
I was wrong for I was watching
From the window up above
