Who Was George Jones?

George Jones began his career by performing on the street to help earn money for his large and impoverished family, and after a brief stint in the military began to pursue his musical ambitions in earnest. In 1955 Jones landed in the country Top Ten with "Why Baby Why," and for the rest of his career was very rarely far from the charts, releasing hit single after hit single as a solo artist and as a duet partner with some of country’s biggest stars, most notably Tammy Wynette, who was also his third wife. Battling his personal demons along the way, Jones amassed an impressive musical legacy that earned him a 2012 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among many other honors.

My Ten Favorite George Jones Songs

George Jones is an American Icon. His voice is an instrument itself. Jones had the uncanny ability to bend notes with his voice and sound like a human steel guitar. I would go so far as to say that no artist defines the country genre and heart-broke condition like The Possum. What follows is a look at my ten favorite Jones recordings. Just a fun little piece I felt like writing. You can argue about your definitions of country all you want, but Jones IS pure, traditional country. We were so fortunate that George lived through all his troubles and dark times to make it out alive and give us many more years. God bless George Jones. We miss you.
