Friends in High Places is an album by American country music artist George Jones, was released in 1991 on the Epic Records label. It would be his final album with the label. The album contained duets that were mostly recorded in 1988 and '91 (for example, the duet with Emmylou Harris, "All Fall Down", was recorded in 1984). Lack of publicity caused this 1991 album to slip by unnoticed...most of these duets were later placed on the mammoth duet project, the re-release of his 1979 album, My Very Special Guests. The title of this 1991 project was no doubt inspired by the Garth Brooks hit single of that time period, "Friends in Low Places".
