One of the best moments in someone’s life is to sing with his/her own mother or father. It is a rare scenario to see children and their parents singing together especially onstage or in front of a crowd. A parent will always be grateful for this rare chance. In this case, the country music world is not an exemption.
Well, there are families who sang together especially gospel songs like the Carter Family, and Isaac Family. Also, there are bands formed that consists of brothers like the Everly Brothers, and the Bellamy Brothers. However, it is very rare for us to see a parent-child tandem, well, with the exception of The Judds, a mother-daughter act. Nevertheless, there were some parent-child performances. Among these is that rare moment when George Jones and his daughter, Tamala Georgette Jones performed “Daddy Come Home.”
George-Georgette Duet: “Daddy Come Home”
Tamala Georgette Jones is the daughter of George and Tammy Wynette. Born on October 5, 1970, Georgette is also a country singer and worked as a registered nurse for 17 years.

“It is not unknown that Tammy Wynette and myself are married at one time. We have a beautiful, young daughter aged of 10, and I like to introduce to you her right now. We would like to do a song together we just recorded.”
