Prohibition ended over 70 years ago, but moonshine songs have still enjoyed a fair amount of popularity in the past decades. Narrowing it down to only 26 songs was difficult, and this month’s Top Five was pretty hotly contested here at The 9513 compound. Nevertheless, we did our best to bring you songs from a wide variety of artists and eras.

A Star for Half a Century, the Country Music Legend Talks to Bob Schieffer About His Long Road Traveled
By Bob Schieffer
“We’re from CBS News - any George Jones fans here?”
“You better believe that, honey!”
They have come from far and wide - one couple from Ireland. The young, and the not-so-young.
They’re at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium - the Mother Church of country music - because George Jones is here.
Jones has been singing for most of his 78 years. But after the life he’s lead, the wonder of it isn’t that he’s still singing - the wonder is he’s still alive.
Country music legend George Jones will appear on CBS Sunday Morning this Sunday October 11, 2009. Host and interviewer Bob Schieffer visited George’s Nashville home and also stopped by Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium late this summer to talk about life, love and a lot of musical history, as well as all that George is up to today.
Jones is travelling throughout Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan Canada this week on the northernmost leg of his sellout 2009 North American tour. Click here for time and station in your area
