George Jones

Jones, George, ultimate honky-tonk singer; b. Saratoga, Tex., Sept. 12 1931. Jones is one artist that New Country male vocalists of the 1980s and 1990s consistently cite as a key influence on their vocal style. Indeed, his distinctive singing style, often jumping from grumbling bass to falsetto hiccup within the same measure, is immediately recognizable. Jones is also one of those artists whose legend has more than once threatened to engulf him, yet somehow he survives and maintained his popularity. Jones began performing honky-tonk material after his discharge from the Marines in the early 1950s. In 1954, he hooked up with Harold Pappy Daily, who served as his manager and also ran Starday Records, which issued his first recordings. His early records show the deep influence of Hank Williams, although he also briefly jumped on the rockabilly bandwagon, recording under the names Thumper Jones and Hank Smith and Nashville Playboys. His first big hits came at United Artists in the early 1960s with songs drenched in honky-tonk heartache, including the 1962s She think I Still Care. He also recorded his first duets with Melba Montgomery at this time. In the mid-1960s, Joness ' recordings suffered from typical girly chorus and mushy strings that were among the worst excesses of Nashville Sound. He married Tammy Wynette in 1969, and moved to her label, Epic, in 1971, hooking up with producer Billy Sherrill. There he recorded a series of hugely successful duets with his then-wife, beginning with 1973s Were Gonna Hold On, and continuing even after their divorce through 1970s. He also recorded a number of solo hits, all custom-tailor to his legendary status as heartbroken, heavy drinker: most notably 1981s If Drinking Dont Kill Me and 1986s One I Love Back Then. In the late 1980s, Jones branch out to cut a series of duets with unlikely younger partners, from Linda Ronstadt to Elvis Costello and James Taylor. Through the 1980s, Jones had a tendency to coast along on his reputation, both in the choice of his material and in often lack-luster performances. Of late, he has made yet another comeback with I Dont Need Your Rockin Chair, good-natured but defiant statement of where this old fellas coming from! The revival of the honky-tonk sound among today's New Nashville vocalists is largely credited to the influence of Jones. Every time Randy Travis dramatically drops his voice to a low bass note, hes emulating the style pioneered by Jones. Although none of the new singers can match his unique vocal style, many try to emulate his image. In 1992, Jones was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Four years later, he published his much-sanitize autobiography. Jones has had trouble getting his more recent recordings to play on country radio, despite the plaudits of many of today's country stars.
