George Jones

Hall of Famer George Jones has been making records for over five decades, raising the bar for country music. In 2008, Jones, a National Medal of Arts winner, was honored at the Kennedy Center for his lifetime contribution to American culture. Mr. Jones' mantel holds two Grammys, along with dozens of honors and accolades. George Jones is an integral force in the history of American music, yet he brims with humility, passion, and candor. His most recent release, A Collection of My Best Recollection, can be found at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations and Cracker Barrel online.
