George Jones’ voice has always seemed to me to be the perfect Country voice… the voice I would most want to have if I had any musical ability and could sing.
He is also one of the few country legends that I have never gotten to see in person. It has just never worked out. The few times he has come to the North Country, I have been otherwise engaged.
It would be difficult to pick a favorite George Jones song. There are so many great duets. But this one would have to be on the short list of favorite solo songs.
On a cold November morning, the warm voice of George Jones seems like just the thing…. Now, if only we were sitting in a bar with a Jim Beam in our hand….
