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.
