The Possum Brings The Crowd To Their Feet!

Lastnight I spoke with Nancy about the surprise Saturday night in Kentucky! It was all planned and Kenny Chesney had no clue that during his show his hero George Jones would step on stage and sing with him! Nancy said Kenny loved every minute of having George with him. Kenny hugged Possum and you could tell he respected the greatest country singer of all time!
Over the years Butch, Aaron, and I have had the chance to call George and his precious wife Nancy friends. You could not ask to meet to kinder and loving people in your life. Nancy has never been more than a phone call away and has always been there in anyway she could be. She is such a dear and loving lady that we just think the world of!!!
George is so kind and always there for you too. I've been around Possum countless times over the years and even when I've been sitting on the couch in their home always have felt welcomed and loved. I still am in awe though when I'm beside him because to me he is the BEST!
I put many updates on my blog talking about George...the reason being is because he is the GREATEST country singer of all time! When you look at the artists who love and respect him and say he is the reason they wanted to be a country singer you see why he is called "THE GREATEST LIVING COUNTRY SINGER OF ALL TIME." From Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, to George Strait they all love him and the list goes on and on! It has become a fact over the years of why he is put on the mountain like he is.
His voice can not be matched! How he can take a country song and sing it like no other! His impact on music as a whole can't and never will be matched! People try to be like him and match him but there is only one George Jones and that's why Possum is the King of Country!
(The "extended" Jones family as Nancy says lol. :D)
This is the video with George surprising Kenny in Kentucky on stage Saturday night. It was shot on a fans camera. You see 20,000 people jump to their feet and shout "George George George." They show the reason why George Jones IS country music! :)
This video sums up my point of why Possum is the greatest! :)
I always love to pray tribute by posting some of my favortie tunes by George...Hope you enjoy! The first one on the list is one did in the 90's with Kenny Chesney and Tracy Lawrence. :)
