Biography

Considered by many to be the greatest all-time country singer, George Jones was as famous for his music as his colorful life. Starting out as a rockabilly and honky-tonk singer, his association with producer Pappy Daily led to mainstream country success with hits like 1959's "White Lightning," 1961's "Tender Years" and 1962's "She Thinks I Still Care." Known fondly as "The Possum" and less so as "No-Show Jones," the hard-living but talented singer met his match in country music legend Tammy Wynette. His tumultuous, brief marriage and longer-lasting professional relationship with Wynette captivated America and was immortalized in a string of 1970s hit duets including "The Ceremony," "We're Gonna Hold On," "(We're Not) The Jet Set" and "Golden Ring" that brought out the best in both of their world-class voices. After surviving heartbreak, drug and alcohol addiction and a reputation for being an erratic and unstable performer, Jones silenced critics with his Grammy-winning masterpiece, 1981's "He Stopped Loving Her Today," considered by many to be the ultimate country classic. Blessed with a rich, emotion-filled voice and a passion for delivering solid songs, George Jones built an impressive legacy by honoring the roots of true country. His 2013 death was mourned by all country music fans.

Milestones

Popular songs include "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and "The Grand Tour".
