Tamala Georgette Jones was born to the Country Music Hall of Fame’s only husband and wife country artists, George Jones and Tammy Wynette. She’s been singing with one or both parents since the age of three. She recorded her first single with her dad, “Daddy Come Home” when she was ten years old and performed it on an HBO special. Georgette also worked as a backup singer for her mom. Georgette recorded a duet with Mark McGuinn that was included on his “One Man’s Crazy” CD and has appeared on TV shows such as Crook & Chase, RFD-TV and The Grand Ole Opry. Georgette is a songwriter and member of SESAC and the CMA. She tours Ireland twice a year, where she has developed a very loyal fan base, as well as Europe and Asia. A duet entitled “You and Me and Time”, which Georgette co-wrote for her father, was released as the first single from George Jones’ last CD, “Burn Your Playhouse Down”.
Georgette has filmed a TV series entitled “Sordid Lives” starring alongside Emmy award winner Leslie Jordan (Will and Grace) and many other stars such as Olivia Newton-John, Bonnie Bedelia (Die Hard), and Margaret Cho.

In 2004 Brian released his 2nd album “Message From Above” and was nominated at the ECMA’s for Country recording of the year.
Brian released a single to country radio “Won’t Live Long” and received airplay across Canada. It looked as if his journey to the big stage was right on track. But in 2006 he was involved in a motor vehicle accident that threatened to take away his musical dream. He is now back on track and feeling great. In the last year, he presented at least 75 concerts in Canada, the US and in Europe. To date, he has sold more than 15 000 albums in his career.
