Singer, author and actress Georgette Jones has signed an artist management deal with Gerald Murray Music. Jones is the daughter of country music legends and Hall of Fame couple, George Jones and Tammy Wynette.
Jones performed “Daddy Come Home,” a duet she had recorded with her father when she was 10 years old, on the 1981 HBO show George Jones with a Little Help from His Friends. George and Georgette also performed “You and Me and Time” on the last George Jones album before his death, Burn Your Playhouse Down: The Unreleased Duets (2008). A year after Wynette’s death, Georgette paid tribute to her mother on Mother’s Day 1999 with the song “I Hope You Knew.”
In addition to singing and songwriting, Jones is also an author. She penned the biography, The Three of Us: Growing Up with Tammy and George, reflecting on life with her famous parents. Jones’ book also provides an inside glimpse at the workings of the country industry.
In the 2022 Showtime original series about her parents, George & Tammy, derived from Jones’ book, she has writing credit for two episodes and appeared as a backup singer in the final episode of the series. Additional on-screen credits include appearances with Leslie Jordan and Olivia Newton-John in five episodes of the 2008 television series Sordid Lives as her mother Tammy Wynette. Jones sang on the soundtrack for the show as well.
As a solo artist, Jones has recorded five albums and has also collaborated with other artists, including a duet with Billy Yates (“Golden Ring”), a duet with Mark McGuinn (“Better a Painful Ending”) and “I Know What You Did Last Night” feat. Vince Gill.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Georgette personally and working with her as an agent. I am extremely proud she has chosen us to help further her career endeavors and to work with her on future projects in a management capacity. She is a sincere and beautiful person and an amazingly talented artist. In the plans are new music and tour dates. Beyond the legacy left by her parents, Georgette has created and continues to grow her own remarkable legacy through music and other artistic endeavors. It is truly an honor for me as a manager to represent a highly regarded artist such as Georgette Jones and to be part of her career administration and her team,” shares Murray.
“I’m thrilled to work with Gerald for many reasons, but I have no doubts that Gerald is a man of his word and the hardest-working person I know. I’m looking forward to a long and great future ahead of us,” shares Jones.
Jones has also signed with PLA Media for publicity.
