George Jones was a pioneer of bringing country music to the mainstream audiences. With a long career that spanned well over fifty years and over one hundred and fifty hits, Jones was considered the “greatest living country singer” and notorious for being a wild boy who partied hard and had fun. Given the nickname “No Show Jones” due to him missing shows on a frequent basis, he finally settled down and got sober with the help of his fourth wife, Nancy ten years before he passed away. Jones was also given the name “Possum” because of his facial features resembled that of a possum.
