His career is an open book. He had all the ups and downs a performer could have, and he always faced them. He was called, ‘No Show Jones’, for a large portion of this life. The label was earned for his reputation as a heavy drinker, and a sometimes unreliable performer.
But that is only part of the story.
George Jones was considered the greatest living Country singer for the last 20 years of his life. He had 150 hit records and wrote countless classics including, ‘Window Up Above’, ‘Seasons of my Heart’, ‘Tender Years’ and ‘Tall Tall Trees’. The last two co-written with Roger Miller.
Jones had a burning desire to sing and entertain, and he did both.
