When George Jones passed away, the entire music industry stood still.

Musicians from every genre took to social media to offer their condolences to his family and talk about their favorite memories.  Harry Connick Jr. was one of those people.

For him, the highlight of his experiences with Jones, was singing with him for their duet, "Nothin' New For New Year".

The song is from Connick's 2003 Christmas album, Harry for the Holidays. The album includes twelve Christmas classics as well as four new songs written by Connick himself.

One of those new songs is "Nothin' New For New Year".  Connick expressed his excitement to Greenwood, South Carolina's The Index-Journal. "George Jones is my favorite singer," he's said. "I was quite surprised and honored that he said yes [to the duet]".

Connick couldn't stop gushing over Jones.

“He’s an amazing talent,” Connick says on his website. “I don’t know how someone can be that musical naturally. The sound of his voice is like something sent from God. George got the winning lottery ticket when it comes to a voice.”

Their voices are so different, but they go so well together. Both of their styles are complimented well and Connick's songwriting ability is a true talent. How we wish there was a live performance of this song!

Listen to the incredible duet below.

Lyrics Below

I see my own reflection in the window
I hear the people carry'n on below
I know the one I love is out there somewhere
To me that somewhere's not far to go

Ev'ry year I make my resolution
To find my love and make her all my own
But it looks like she decided not to show again
And I'll be singing 'Auld Lang Syne' alone

People grow accustomed to their lifestyles
It's easier to settle in your ways
I wish that I had someone to get used to
To settle down until my dying days

Nothin' new for new year for me
Nothin' new for new year for me
All I wanted was an angel that I don't expect to see
Nothin' new for new year for me

It don't mean nothing if you're crying all the time
And there's no one there to see your tears
And it don't mean nothing if you're passing up your prime
And I been passing mine for years

And so, to my reflection in the window
I'll raise my glass and make a toast to you
I've never known a man to be heartbroken
My someone that he never even knew

Nothin' new for new year for me
Nothin' new for new year for me
All I wanted was an angel that I don't expect to see
Nothin' new for new year for me
