• Ladies Choice / My Very Special Guests - George Jones

One of the original intentions of Ladies' Choice was to pair George Jones with, mainly, several up and coming female singers although ironically, its biggest success came with its only solo track She's My Rock which rose to #2 in the 1984 Billboard Single Charts. George recorded it as a tribute to his wife Nancy who had helped him turn his life around, putting behind him the years of alcoholism and drug addiction.

George Jones helped set a trend for album duet collaborations with My Very Special Guests bringing together a collection of artists who were admirers and peers. Perhaps the presence of Elvis Costello might have been a little surprising but he was a long-time fan and found inspiration from Jones for his country songwriting, Stranger In The House being one of those songs. A year later he enjoyed British chart success with the George Jones hit A Good Year For The Roses.
