Legends don’t come around everyday, and most of them don’t last as long as George Jones. The man’s career started in 1945, survived alcoholism, drug use, a bus crash, a car crash, pretty much everything life could throw at him and he could throw at himself.
I wasn’t a George Jones fan growing up and can’t say I’m one now, as I’m not a fan of country music. But the man’s sheer ability to survive and thrive, and that voice, deserve a tip of the hat. No one will fill George Jones’ shoes.
