cherryl taggart: I have a George Jones concert t-shirt from 1987-88. He was drunk, great, and looked 5 minutes away from death back then. I cannot believe he's still touring, even if he cancels from time to time.

Hang tough, No-show.

I bet you can find someone who will tell that exact same story about a show from 1978, 1968, and 1958.

CSB story time:

Circa 1988, I was In the Army in Germany. Some of my buddies were drinking in the barracks and I entered the room to get a beer. On the bookshelf there was a mini George Jones tour bus (pictured below) and I made the mistake of asking "who the hell is George Jones?" in a snarky tone.

I no sooner got the question out when someone killed the lights and I was tackled so hard the wind was knocked out of me. A few punches to my limbs later, the lights came back on.

The room was occupied by a bunch of "good ol' boys" from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

I was from California.
