A Taste of George Jones’ Flair in Sammy Kershaw’s “Anywhere But Here”


For country music lovers, we all know George Jones had the style, which is different from the other country artists. When performing and creating songs, he immerses himself in its lyrics and the mood it conveys. With this, the listener, undoubtedly, can be involved. “Anywhere But Here” is a song that is similar to Jones’ temperament. On the other hand, Sammy Kershaw brought out his Jones’ flair in it.

Moreover, “Anywhere But Here” is one of Sammy Kershaw’s Top Ten singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It peaked at number ten on the said chart in 1993. It was twenty-five years ago since then. Nevertheless, the song is powerful to remember the great music of yesterday. Meanwhile, it will remind us of the legacy of George Jones.

Anywhere But Here

Bob DiPiero, Buddy Cannon, and John Scott Sherrill pooled resources for the words and lyrics of “Anywhere but Here.” Sammy Kershaw released the single on September 28, 1992, under his album “Don’t Go Near the Water.” Again, it peaked at the number ten spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on January 9, 1993. It took more than three months before it finally placed on that position. It spent a total of twenty weeks on the chart.

Furthermore, Sammy Kershaw’s other Top Ten singles are “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful” which became his only number one single. The others are “Haunted Heart,” “Queen of My Double Wide Trailer,” “Meant to Be,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore,” “Cadillac Style,” “Third Rate Romance,” “National Working Woman’s Holiday,”  and “Love of My Life.”
