The Legendary Soul Man SAM MOORE, voted one of the 100 top pop voices of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, joins bluegrass group Nu-Blu as a special guest on their upcoming single release "Jesus and Jones" - a song that pays tribute to the late George Jones.

Moore, who had been invited personally by George before he passed away, performed at what became Jones' tribute show Playin' Possum: The Final No Show in November of 2013. Sam took no time to agree to participate in recording this song. "I've been a fan of George's music for a long, long time and was fortunate enough that we called each other friends," says Moore. "This song honors him and says what we all have felt about him."

"We absolutely love this song and its message," says Nu-Blu's Carolyn Routh. "We played the demo for George's widow Nancy Jones and she loved it. With her encouragement we recorded it and just knew we wanted to add a guest vocalist to the recording. Then we thought back to the November tribute show and remembered it was Sam Moore who had just brought the house down. You could see the love he had for George."

Over the years, Sam has crossed over from soul, the genre his hit song "Soul Man" named, to rhythm & blues, jazz, big band, pop, and country. He was nominated for an ACM, and two CMAs for his collaboration with Conway Twitty on "Rainy Night In Georgia" on the Country, Rhythm & Blues album. Their video is considered a classic and one of the top country duets of all time.
