Sings from the Heart is an album by American country music artist George Jones. This album was released in 1962 on the Mercury Records label.

Background[edit]

After Jones signed with United Artists in 1961, Mercury began repackaging material the singer had recorded, with some of them dating back several years. Sings From The Heart collects a wide range of tunes of varying quality that have the word "heart" in the title, the exception being the ballad "Tender Years." In 1984, Jones biographer Bob Allen wrote that "The manner in which he sang the words to 'Tender Years' (which, in mid-1961, became his second number one single) was, in fact, just about enough to make the short hairs stand up on the back of one's head." In 1994, country music historian Colin Escott agreed, writing that the song "just about defined the territory he carved out as his own in the years ahead...the song, the production, and the performance came together in a statement of soon-to-be classic George Jones."
