George Jones' hit song, "The Grand Tour", will always be one of our favorites.
"The Grand Tour" was released in 1974 as the first single from George's album of the same name, The Grand Tour. The emotional song was a hit, and earned George the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, the sixth number one song of his career.
Although there will never be anything like the original, many country artists have covered this classic song, and they've done it well!
As tribute to the legendary George Jones, we've compiled some of our favorite covers, and we're sure y'all will love them too!
So check out the videos below to see George Strait, Scotty McCreery, Lee Ann Womack, and of course George Jones himself singing the classic song, "The Grand Tour".
Y'all are going to love this one. During a routine concert, George Strait shocked the crowd with a George Jones tribute - and they loved it! What an honor to have George Strait singing one of your songs, even if you are a legend like George Jones! This cover was one for the books, y'all are going to want to check it out!
Scotty McCreery is an absolute superstar, and this video will definitely remind you of that. Scotty is a new artist with an old soul, and prepare to be blown away by the video below. At the Grand Ole Opry, Scotty gave the audience a performance to remember when he began singing George's hit song. He sings such a powerful rendition of "The Grand Tour" that we're sure even George would have been impressed. Check it out!
Another amazing Opry performance! This is stunning, and we're sure y'all will agree! Lee Ann Womack's voice is so powerful and was a perfect match for this song. You could see her pouring her heart and soul into each word, and we think even George would be as blown away as we are! Go Lee Ann!
