He's Still Got Some Hurtin' Left To Do
George Jones. One of the most beautiful voices in the world. I don't care what he's singing, whether it's a corn-ball song about corn-licker or a 1980's country power ballad. Thankfully he's sung some of the greatest songs in the world along with the moonshine songs and power ballads. "Window Up Above" and "He Stopped Loving Her Today". And, of course he made some classic duets with ex-wife Tammy Wynette. If you compare country singers, George Jones and Merle Haggard have the prettiest voices, Willie Nelson has the voice you feel you're already friends with. Johnny Cash has a sort of scary voice that tells compelling, dark stories. But George Jones! His voice is like an angel's. An angel wearing a polyesther pantsuit and sporting huge sideburns. I read his autobiography called "I Lived To Tell It All", and it was really interesting, if not a bit depressing. I'm glad he's happier now. He's a truly great artist.
