When country music legend George Jones passed away on April 26, 2013 at the age of 81, he left behind a rich musical legacy that has rarely been equaled — matched only by a life story filled with more triumph and heartbreak than the greatest country song ever written.
Twenty-one years ago today, on Sept. 12, 1994, George Jones had a birthday to remember, even if it wasn't the way he had hoped. It was on this day that the singer had triple bypass surgery at Nashville's Baptist Hospital, where he remained hospitalized for one week.
Not long before he died, George Jones penned a final letter to Alan Jackson. He was asking for a favor, one the younger country singer was likely happy to fulfill. Now, as Jackson releases his Angels and Alcohol album he's shared a photo of that letter with Taste of Country readers.
Alan Jackson's Angels and Alcohol album is as country as country gets — something that fans of the format may find refreshing, but something that his longtime fans expect. The 10 songs tell stories of love, heartbreak, drinking and family, but really, the 56-year-old is just doing what his hero asked him to do years ago.
George Jones was almost as famous for his offstage exploits as for his iconic music, and his colorful life is coming to the big screen in a film that his wife promises will be an honest look the country icon.
A house fire in Madisonville, Texas last Thursday, February 19th, claimed some irreplaceable country music memorabilia. The home belonged to Sheila Richey, widow of country music songwriter and producer, George Richey.
Officially, Bertie "Pee Wee" Johnson was George Jones’ road manager for over a decade, but that hardly describes the two men’s unexpected relationship. Johnson, also known for creating hot chicken in Nashville, died last week at his home in Columbia, Tenn.
