Billy Sherrill Producing George Jones Gospel Album

Famed producer Billy Sherrill, who helmed many early hits for George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Charlie Rich and others, has returned to the studio to produce Jones’ upcoming gospel album, George Jones Sings the Greatest Stories Ever Told. Details on the project are incomplete, but a spokeswoman for Jones’ label, Bandit Records, says gospel great Vestal Goodman is one of the guest artists on the album and that the Jordanaires will provide background vocals for certain tracks. The selections are traditional gospel songs. Look for the album in February. 10/8/02
