Country great GEORGE JONES combines forces with country great WILLIAMS SAUSAGE COMPANY, INC. of Union City, Tn. to bring GEORGE JONES COUNTRY SAUSAGE to the American table. Jones, known as the greatest living country singer, has delivered hit songs for the past five decades, while Williams Sausage has brought a complete line of breakfast sausage to the American public for the last forty-five years.
“Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day,” Jones explains from his Franklin, Tn. home. “My wife Nancy sets the table and it’s my job to fry up the sausage and make sure it’s just right.”
Williams Sausage Co., Inc. processes a complete line of Sausage, which is made using all premium cuts and blended with Williams’ special recipe of herbs and spices for the finest pork sausage found today. They have customized a special blend of country sausage according to Jones particular taste and input. “I wouldn’t put my name on anything that wasn’t the best,” Jones says, ” I never want to disappoint my fans.”
Roger Williams, president of Williams Sausage Co., Inc. said: “We are delighted to be in business with country music legend, George Jones. We have spent the last several months recreating a recipe that he remembered from his family and designing the packaging. Our intention is to take this brand nationally and be in-stores by mid-June. We’ve learned that George has an amazing fan base that cuts across all demographics and we believe that consumers will love this fabulous new breakfast item. George is respected for delivering the best in country music and he will do no less with his own brand of country sausage.”
There will be three types of George Jones Country Sausage available: George Jones Country Sausage and Biscuits and George Jones Country Sausage (mild and hot) sold as chubs and patties.
The Sausage and Biscuits box will feature short, often-told stories about Jones called “Fables and Truths” that tell half truths about George’s
colorful life using sausage as a pivotal story point. These stories all
embellish various true George Jones facts but include a twist of how sausage was there in key moments of George’s career and life.
“I don’t lend my name to just anything,” George concludes. “Williams Sausage is some of the best I’ve ever had and I like the fact that they are an old family business that hasn’t changed hands much. Kind of like me, I’ve been a country singer since the day I started off in the business and I’ll be singin’ country til the day I die.”
GEORGE JONES has also introduced a complete line of marinades and food sauces marketed under the name GEORGE JONES COUNTRY STYLE Ole’ Fashion Steak Marinade, Good On Anything Sauce, Old Smokey Barbeque Sauce and Geroge’s Choice Barbeque Marinade.
