Different Versions

The popularity of the song made different artists record their version. Some of the artists known to have a cover of this song were Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner, Ricky Skaggs, Loretta Lynn, and many more. Today we are going to take a look at one of country music’s legendary artists, George Jones and his version.

George Jones’ Recording

In 1962, Some of Jones’ songs at the United Artists were compiled and released into an album known as Sings the Hits of His Country Cousins. Jones’ album contained twelve covered songs.

  1. “Beggar to a King”
  2. “Peace in the Valley”
  3. “I Could Never Be Ashamed of You”
  4. “Silver Dew on the Bluegrass Tonight”
  5. “The Precious Jewel”
  6. “It’s a Sin”
  7. “Don’t Let the Starts get in Your Eyes”
  8. “Give My Love to Rose”
  9. “The Same Sweet Girl”
  10. “Yes, I Know Why”
  11. “Wings of a Dove”
  12. “A Little Bitty Tear”

The album wasn’t commercially successful, yet Jones performance in this album was incredibly outstanding. Sadly, none of the songs got much attention, as it was never released as a single.

Here is Jones’ version of “Wings of a Dove.” The recording of this song was during his early years as an artist where his voice is strong and powerful. You can hear in his voice the emotions felt while singing the song, which makes this recording great.
