George Jones has been nominated for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “Funny How Time Slips Away". Congratulations! The 48th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
It may surprise some to learn that country music icon, George Jones, or ‘The Possum’ as he is lovingly known, turns into a kid each year at Christmas time. “We always did decorate, but in the past few years it has taken on a life of its own,” Jones says of the now famous lighting display that graces the property of the home he shares with wife Nancy just outside of Nashville. “I usually go down and say hello to the folks, I like to see how excited the children get.”
