GEORGE JONES INSPIRES LINE DANCE

In 1992, George Jones released the CMA winning hit ‘I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.’ The song became an anthem for the aging country fans and artists who wanted to remind everyone that their bodies might be old, but they aren’t impaired!

Now, in 2011 George Jones is still proving that “he’s not ready for the junk yard yet” with a busy summer tour schedule and a new collection of music. The latest album, ’George Jones: Hits,’ is the perfect selection of fan favorites with two unreleased singles, ‘I Should’ve Called’ and ‘I Ain’t Ever Slowin’ Down,’ that will please any possum lover!

Follow up:


Surprisingly, ‘I Ain’t Ever Slowin’ Down’ is also becoming a line dance hit nationwide. Now, the Country Music Hall of Famer is not only encouraging you to stay out of rocking chairs, he wants you to get up, dance and never slow down!

As a life-long fan of George Jones, I encourage everyone to take advantage of the fact that George is still touring. If you can, get out and see this historic legend at least once in your lifetime! For the new, younger fans of Country Music, who are hearing his name for the first time in Jason Aldean’s hit ‘Dirt Road Anthem,’ I encourage you to discover the music of George Jones! George’s music and life story will help you to better appreciate the Country Music genre. There is a reason that so many people have crowned him “The Greatest Country Singer of All-Time!”
