Who’s Gonna Fill Them Shoes

Well friends, it’s old ‘No-Show’ Jones’ last big gig today at The Grand Ole Opry. Open to the public and goin’ out on cable too dont’cha know. Sad to see him go, hell of a voice that guy had, but how he managed to live this long is kinda a mystery. George made literally hundreds of records and some of them are among the greatest country records ever made, some not so much. Couple of great old sleeves here from the crew cut early years. He really sort of grew into his face didn’t he? This song here indulges just a little bit in a bunch of the syrupy sentiments and nostalgia to which country music is prone but, it’s still good and it seems appropriate today don’t it?

R.I.P. George
