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.

Musical Films Of 1931

As much as I love music, I also love film, so for every year I’m on, I’ll be texting you about my favorite film that has a soundtrack  even though I prefer action and comedy, they don’t have a soundtrack, and I’m not going to break my rules for my selfish interests. If I wanted to text about Films, I should have started one, and not have it on my website, however, other interest I have does have music in it, so I’ll be adding them to my website, when the time is right.

Some years, I may not like any of them, so some of my blogs won’t mean a thing, but others will have plenty of meaning, so here’s what was shown in 1931, and I only like one of them, which I didn’t know was made in 1931, so even I am learning as I go.

I’m sure that you can look up these names for yourself, but I’m only doing performers who were born and died in 1931 on this blog to let you know who on this list that I’d be doing a biography on. In 1930, there was only one person that I liked and in that list, theirs also only one performer that I like, but I’m not going to do his biography now, until I’m ready for more than two performers, so I’ll be doing another list, before I start to begin with my biography on each and every performers who I want to be on my website.

I also have who died, but their on their way out and I don’t know anything about them, and I don’t know if I should, since I don’t have anything about them, nor thinking of going further into the past...
