Happy Birthday Possum

George Jones - Billboard Magazine
There is one thing about it - there will only be one George Jones.  On September 12, 1931, George Glen Jones was born in Saratoga, Texas.  So much has been written about the man, the myth, the legend that is of the country music singer over the years.  Last year, the distinctive vocals of Jones were silenced with his passing.  Check out my tribute on on George Jones here.

I have been fortunate to have seen George Jones play several times over the years while growing up.  

On Saturday, September 13th, the family of George Jones will be having a balloon release at his grave site at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.

Today, I plan on cranking up George Jones here in my office in celebration of his birthday.  From "Bartenders Blues" to "Golden Ring" to "I Don't Need Your Rocking Chair" to so many more songs, there is something for everyone.
