In a day and age where technology abounds and stars are discovered with the simple click of a button, it’s not unusual to see people from all walks of life trying to get their fifteen minutes of fame. But, rarely has a voice taken the internet so completely by storm in a way that Kris Jones’s voice has.
Jones, a married father from Texas, was recently recorded singing “Tennessee Whiskey” in the front of his pickup truck. The tune, first made popular by George Jones in 1983 and again by Chris Stapleton in 2015, was captured by Jones’s 15-year old daughter. Not only is Kris Jones’s voice incredible, but his daughter’s adorable reaction put the video over the top.
Kris’s wife, Destinie, shared the video to Facebook on New Year’s Day and within 48 hours had garnered 3 million views. The numbers continued to climb as the story reached media outlets who were excited to share the discovery of Jones’s talent. At press time, the video has been viewed nearly 14 millions times with no signs of slowing down.
