Top 3 Essential George Jones Albums


George Jones is known as the "greatest living country singer." His song "He Stopped Loving Her Today" is ranked on many lists as the greatest country song of all time. Early in his career, he had problems with sobriety, and earned the other less complimentary nickname as "No-Show Jones" due to his missing many performances. He was married to Tammy Wynette, and the two recorded some of the best country duets around. It wasn't until he met and married his fourth wife that he was able, with her help to overcome his addictions. Over fifty years into his career, Jones is still sounding better than ever.
