The title track of Jeanette's last solo album, THANK YOU FOR CARING on Blue Circle Records, is a duet with country music legend George Jones. Written by Dixie and Tom T. Hall, the song tells the true story of a little girl Miss Dixie met while gathering items for the relief effort in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Although the family had few material possessions, the girl unselfishly donated her own chest of drawers, and tenderly commented, "Thank you for caring." A portion of the proceeds from album sales will be donated to the American Red Cross for continuing disaster relief.

THANK YOU FOR CARING also features Jeanette's award-winning "Enough Of You," recipient of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest (bluegrass division) at MerleFest in 2007.
