I'm pulling myself out of retirement to pay tribute to a legend, George Jones. The Possum passed away earlier this week, and it is truly a sad day for country music.
His first #1 hit in 1959 was White Lightnin'. Dig that rockabilly guitar...
He lived hard and gained the nickname of "No Show Jones"... But, he made it through all that, and here he is telling us about it, circa 2000:
Thank you, Possum, for 50 years of great music. Which leads us to the question... Who's gonna fill YOUR shoes? (You can skip ahead to 1:45 to get straight to the song...)
