George Jones Part Two

Early years (1931–1953)

George Glenn Jones was born on September 12, 1931, in Saratoga, Texas, and was raised in Colmesneil, Texas, with his brother and five sisters. His father, George Washington Jones, worked in a shipyard and played harmonica and guitar while his mother, Clara, played piano in the Pentecostal Church on Sundays. During his delivery, one of the doctors dropped Jones and broke his arm. When he was seven, his parents bought a radio and he heard country music for the first time. Jones recalled to Billboard in 2006 that he would lie in bed with his parents on Saturday nights listening to the Grand Ole Opry and insist that his mother wake him if he fell asleep so he could hear Roy Acuff or Bill Monroe.

Michael Fleming incorrectly stated in his book that, after suffering a stroke, “Moe felt it best [that] Curly take a leave of absence to recover, but Harry Cohn adamantly refused to allow it, forcing Curly to continue the already-taxing work in his ill-health.” In reality, their Columbia schedule provided five months off from August 1945 through January 1946. Rather than rest, the trio committed themselves to making a feature film at Monogram, followed by a two-month-long live appearance gig in New York City, with performances seven days a week. Curly also entered a disastrous third marriage in October 1945, leading to a separation in January 1946 and divorce in July 1946. That unhappy union wrecked his already fragile health...

Why Am I Doing This?

You might be thinking, Why Am I Doing This, well it’s like this, I been on many musical websites, and to me, their all the same. What I mean is, they have long blogs, which is not fun to read, and only one song, which is in the middle of the blog, with no feelings.I saw the same photo and on a website that texts you about music and the people in the music industry and not have any record album is a poorly done blog, however I don’t think that way, I put the whole album that I could, with the space I have.

I do it this way, because that’s how I would want it to be. I’m not fake either, I only do people who I like and I’m not going to choose...

This was what I did after school, watching The Three Stooges. They were the funnies people I have ever watch on TV, and funnier than the Obama’s admiration(I’m sorry, but I couldn’t resist), and almost clumsy. I couldn’t wait for the school bell to ring and the bus ride, wasn’t fast enough to get home, but when I did, I almost broke the TV by siding into stand changing the channel(sisters, they always want to watch soap operas, they should get a life). On Saturday Morning, I got to see The New Three Stooges, in color, witch made my weekends complete, because the black and white ones were in the afternoon, that is until, my brother started to watch sports(he was young and foolish, for nothing beats The Three Stooges...
