George Jones, Admired and Imitated Country Singer, Dies at 81

 

 

” George Jones, the definitive country singer of the last half-century, whose songs about heartbreak and hard drinking echoed his own turbulent life, died on Friday in Nashville. He was 81.

His publicists, Webster & Associates, said he died at a hospital after being admitted there on April 18 with fever and irregular blood pressure.”

” Mr. Jones — nicknamed Possum for his close-set eyes and pointed nose and later No-Show Jones for the concerts he missed during drinking and drug binges — was universally respected and just as widely imitated. With a baritone voice that was as elastic as a steel-guitar string, he found vulnerability and doubt behind the cheerful drive of honky-tonk and brought suspense to every syllable, merging bluesy slides with the tight, quivering ornaments of Appalachian singing.”

Rest In Peace Possum

 

 

DANIELS: I won’t just shut up
and sing

  “Where I come from, a redneck is
just a hardworking man who gets up before the sun does and spends the day working outside, getting the
back of his neck rosy in the process.
I happen to think those folks are the
salt of the earth… – C. Daniels”
