George Jones Celebrates 80th Birthday, Reflects on Legendary Career

He doesn’t record as often as he used to — and his last top 40 hit, the Garth Brooks duet ‘Beer Run,’ was released 10 years ago — but George Jones is still going strong. In fact, he kicked off a line dancing craze earlier this year, and recently celebrated his 80th birthday with a special party at the Grand Ole Opry.

Country fans can take pride in their genre, which emerged from the countdown relatively unscathed, albeit with one significant, and hardly surprising, exception.

Chris Young Credits His Success to Strong Work Ethic

These days, Chris Young is riding high with his fourth consecutive number one single, ‘Tomorrow,’ and a new hit album, ‘Neon.’ But life wasn’t always so rosy for the onetime ‘Nashville Star’ winner.

In fact, before Young released his first hit single, ‘Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song),’ he had to deal with the news that his father had been diagnosed with cancer.

The original ‘Footloose’ soundtrack sold more than nine million copies, topped the Billboard charts, and spawned six top 40 singles — two of which went all the way to number one, earning Academy Award nominations in the process.

The remake has some big shoes to fill, needless to say, so you’ve got to give Blake Shelton credit for chutzpah: he covered Kenny Loggins’ chart-topping title track for the new soundtrack, and now you can hear it for yourself.
