George Jones, who will turn 80 years old on September 12, will be honored by legendary country music radio station WSM from Nashville, home of the Grand Ole Opry, by presenting a special George Jones day on air. "The party is set to include Jones classics every hour 12 midnight – 7 p.m., listener birthday greetings and requests throughout the day, and a special edition of “The Eddie Stubbs Show” 7 p.m. – midnight featuring nothing but George Jones recordings," says an official Lotos Nile press newsletter. Also, there will be a special Grand Ole Opry show on next Saturday to celebrate Jones' birthday.
Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.
