|Released 1974 (1974)|
Writer(s) Bobby Braddock
"(We're Not) The Jet Set" is a song recorded by country music duo George Jones and Tammy Wynette. It was written by country songwriter Bobby Braddock.
The song is a humorous celebration of country roots. It begins with European instrumentation and the misleading opening lines:
Epic released the song as a single in 1974 and it climbed to #15 on the Billboard country charts. In July 2013 Uncut singled out the performance as a "grand romance." John Prine covered the song with Iris Dement and it became the opening track on his 1999 LP In Spite of Ourselves.
