This single takes Sam Moore on his first venture into the bluegrass realm, noting that he has already recorded songs in rhythm & blues, jazz, big band, pop, and country. Reaction from bluegrass radio to Moore’s debut performance is already garnering positive reviews.
“You pair one up and coming bluegrass band with one R&B legend, then add a song pairing country music icon, George Jones, with Jesus and you have what has to be the most unique sound in bluegrass today! Nu- Blu’s Carolyn Routh vocally sets up the song “Jesus and Jones” as a mainline bluegrass salute to the late Mr. Jones. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sam Moore then shows why he is still a “soul man” with his turn at the mic. When their voices blend on the finale it is magic! Totally bluegrass….No….Totally soul….No….Totally great music….YES!,” says Gene Skinner of Great Stuff Radio.
