The Bradley Barn Sessions is an album released in 1994 by American country music artist George Jones. It is a duet album, comprising eleven of Jones's songs re-recorded as duets with various singers, primarily country music artists. The only release from this album was the re-recording of "A Good Year for the Roses", a collaboration with Alan Jackson which peaked at #56 on the Billboard country charts. Several unreleased tracks recorded during this album's sessions were later included on Jones' 2008 duets album Burn Your Playhouse Down - The Unreleased Duets.
