Because of his widely-known alcohol abuse problem, there was a time they called him "No Show Jones." He had a reputation of "forgetting" to show up for shows. But just this year George Jones was presented a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award -- pretty impressive.

Fifty-six years after being named the Most Promising New Country Vocalist of 1956, Jones still tours regularly. Audiences still flock to hear the voice that is country’s most indescribable as well as, by acclamation, its finest.

Did you know? With a run of songs extending from the mid-1950s into the 21st century, George Jones has had a whopping 143 Top 40 country hits!

Check out the KNUE Gold Rush show with John Moore every Saturday morning from 8am - 10am to hear the great George Jones and all your favorites from the '70's, '80's and '90's!
