The Bradley Barn Sessions is a duet album released in 1994 by American country music artist George Jones.
The concept behind The Bradley Barn Sessions was to place Jones in the hands of traditionalist country producer Brian Ahern, record at Owen Bradley’s legendary studios, compile a selection of the singer’s greatest hits, and have him sing duets with not just some of the biggest names in country but also pop music as well. Although the album – Jones fourth for MCA – did not break the top twenty on Billboards country albums chart, peaking at 23, it features the first recorded duet between the singer and his ex-wife Tammy Wynette since their 1981 LP Together Again. The only single release from the album was “A Good Year For The Roses”, a collaboration with Alan Jackson. As Jones noted in his autobiography two years later, “After the duets album was released, radio didn’t know what to do with it…Alan was white-hot on the radio, and programmers wanted his voice. But some didn’t want his if they had to take mine. The vast majority of Alan’s other single records have gone to number one. His duet with me was his first not to crack the top 50.” It actually peaked at number 57. In June 1995, the song won the Music City News Country Awards “Vocal Collaboration of the Year”.
