George Jones: What Happened?

Music great and Tabloid Baby avatar George Jones is 76 years old and against all odds, alive and well and still on the road with one-night stands booked from now through October and beyond, taking him from Knoxville to places like Tunica, Panama City, Saskatoon, Fort MacMurray, Thunder Bay and French Lick and venues like the Burton Cummings Theater in Winnipeg, The Spirit Lake Casino in Devils Lake, Diamond Jack's, and of course The Ryman Auditorium (meet us in Nashville on May 18th).

After all these years, the Possum is still the same-- except for one thing-- he's got a new look. Have you seen George Jones? He showed up recently with a new picture on our MySpace favorites page that's almost as unrecognizeable as Kenny Rogers-- only not from the knife but the barber's shears-- his aerodynamically amazing flattop pomp is now chopped down and trimmed back and the sharp edges softened enough to make the king look something like mortal.
