Roughly one month ago, Kris Jones appeared on The Ellen Show where he performed the George Jones classic “Tennessee Whiskey.” The appearance came on the heels of Kris’s viral performance of the tune that was captured by his 15-year old daughter, Dayla.
In the video, posted to Facebook by his wife, Jones and his daughter are seated in the front seat of a truck in a Home Depot parking lot. Dayla begins to record her dad singing with the intention of only sharing the video with her friends. What happened next stunned the internet.
To date, more than 40 million people have viewed the original video of Kris Jones singing “Tennessee Whiskey,” gaining him an instant following.
