Many of us have had to endure our dad’s singing in the car as he drove us to school, on those long family road trips, or as he waited for the light to turn green. But for Texas teen Dayla Jones those times were like having front row concert seats thanks to her dad’s incredibly beautiful voice.
Dayla recently uploaded a video her dad Kris’ drive time karaoke session where he sang a mind-blowing cover of George Jones’ classic “Tennessee Whiskey”.
The video, which shows Dayla playfully lip syncing in the foreground as her dad belted out one of the most captivating YouTube performances we have ever seen, has been watched by millions. Including Ellen DeGeneres who invited the father and daughter team to her show.
Since then, Kris Jones has announced that he has plans to pursue a career in singing. Something that he revealed during his stint on Ellen as being a dream that had to be put on hold when “life got in the way.”
Thanks to his daughter, he now has another chance. Which goes to show that incredible as his voice may be, Kris Jones but he has an even greater gift in having a daughter who loves him and is proud of him so much.
