Sammy Kershaw is back on the charts, this time with his George Jones tribute album, 'Do You Know Me? A Tribute to George Jones.' The record debuted at No. 37 on the Billboard Top Country chart, making it his first Top 40 album in over a decade.
With pop-country, bro-country and hick-hop becoming more prominent in country music -- and artists like Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Big Smo at the forefront -- a more traditional country sound seems to be taking a backseat. Sammy Kershaw laments, giving his thoughts on the matter, and he isn't holding back.
Sammy Kershaw is grieving the death of his younger brother today. The singer announced that Minos Joseph Cashat, Jr. passed away on Friday (Sept. 27), also detailing the funeral arrangements for friends and family.
The Country community was both shocked and saddened by the death of George Jones. While some country artists tweeted their thoughts and feelings, others paid tribute with videos of themselves singing one of the Possum's songs. Sammy Kershaw went a bit further and has released his latest single in honor of his good friend.
