The first single from the upcoming album The Reconciliation, "The Gospel According To George", will be released immediately, due to the sad passing of George Jones.
As Michael explains: It was not intended to be the first single, in fact it was not intended there would even be a single right now, but it only seemed right and fitting to mark the sad passing of the magnificent George Jones passing. A man who, both as a singer, and songwriter, was such a huge influence on me. The music and legacy of George and Tammy was very much the template for Lou and I when we began My Darling Clementine. 2 years ago I read George's amazing biography, "I Lived To Tell It All" (it makes Keith Richards biog seems like Enid Blyton). There were so many great lines in the book, I started jotting a few down. The end result was this song.... "The Gospel According To George' .
