Acadiana's own Sammy Kershaw has written a touching tribute to one of his idols - Country Music Hall of Fame member George Jones, who passed away on April 26.

"George was a major part of my life for many years," says Kershaw. "He was my friend and mentor and I wrote this song with him in mind a while back and hoped that he one day might record it. I couldn't think of a more appropriate time to put it out. God Bless you, Possum and see you again someday my friend."

The song is available on Amazon,on iTunes, or Sammy's website Check out the video for 'The Route That I Took - My Tribute to George Jones', and thank you, Sammy, for a beautiful song. We miss you, too, Possum.
