The original crooner, Tom Jones, takes the stage to perform his most famous songs from his long and illustrious career. This performance features songs from Jones’ recent, critically acclaimed albums as well as a selection of his iconic hits that takes the audience on a musical journey across the eras and musical spectrum. Joining him for the special evening is one of the most talented women in the music industry, Alison Krauss. Krauss has won 27 Grammy® awards, making her the most awarded singer and most awarded female artist in Grammy® history. In the video above, watch Tom Jones perform "It's Not Unusual" in a memorable solo act. "It's Not Unusual" was written by Les Reed and Gordon Mills and recorded by a then-unknown, Tom Jones. It was originally written for Sandie Shaw, but when she heard Tom's demo she was impressed by his delivery of the song and decided to forgo recording her version. This was the first hit for Jones in the US, peaking at No. 10 in May of 1965. Fun fact, there are conflicting reports as to who actually played on this record. Tom Jones's group, "Tom Jones and the Squires" were missing their original keyboardist at the time so future AC/DC drummer, Chris Slade, recruited Reginald Dwight; who we all know as Sir Elton John.
