50 Years of
There are few artists whose careers in country music have
spanned fifty years, and even fewer who have achieved the recognition and
awards George Jones has received. George’s remarkable career has produced
over 140 Top 40 country hits and numerous albums. This humble man who
sings about the pain in his soul has now witnessed his career come full
circle with the release of GEORGE JONES – 50 YEARS OF HITS, featuring
timeless recordings from each year of his career.
George Jones was born and raised in Texas. Out of his
impoverished youth came George’s love of music – his father played guitar
and his mother played piano. They encouraged George to take an interest in
music. At the age of nine, George’s father bought him his first guitar and
the course of his life was set. It wasn’t long before the young boy who
sang and played in the dusty streets of Beaumont, Texas for tips became
one of America’s most beloved country music performers.
George joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1950. After life as
a leatherneck, George returned to Texas and resumed his music career.
George’s first Top 10 country hit came in 1955 with "Why Baby, Why" and
was followed by "White Lightning." In 1980, Jones released "He Stopped
Loving Her Today," a song that will forever be remembered as one of the
greatest country music songs ever recorded. The song vaulted George into
country music superstardom.
