George "No Show" Jones was one of the most bad ass individuals to ever live. He earned the title "No Show" from back in day when he would get too drunk to perform and miss shows.

One time his wife took his truck keys so he couldn't drive to the liquor store. She hadn't taken the John Deere keys though so he rode his riding lawn mower like 20 miles into town and went to the bar. Sure enough his wife went out looking for him and when she saw the John Deere parked there she knew he was there. George told his friends at the bar "There she is boys, my beautiful wife. I knew she'd come after me"

And he had perhaps the most envied voice in country music. Even Waylon Jennings wished he could sound like George Jones, and Waylon was a crooner.

do yourself a favor and listen to some of his stuff Grieves..you won't regret it.

Some basic ones I would recommend are "He Stopped Loving Her Today", "She Thinks I Still Care", "The Grand Tour", "Still Doin Time", "The King is Gone"...man I could go on.

at that story what a badass...I live in a small town and that same kind of deal happened to this guy, so he took the backhoe on his property and drove it down to the store I was working at and came in and bought an 18 pack and sat in the cab and drank a few before throwing the rest in the cooler and cruising home...

Thanks for the recommendations, I will definitely check them out in addition to the videos that sage and stonie-jo posted...
