GEORGE JONES - SAME OLE ME: THE OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY
Waylon Jennings wrote in his song 'It's Alright' - "If we all could sound the way we wanted, we'd all sound like George Jones." Such is the remarkable impact and accesibility of one of Country music's great performers, who has had more than 150 hits during his illustrious career, both as a solo artist and in duets with other high-profile artists.Despite his past troubles with alcohol and a wily nick name such as "Possum", George Jones has developed a reputation as Country music's very own living legend.Given a guitar when he was nine years old, Jones was soon busking for money on the streets of Beaumont - leaving home at 16 to make his mark on the world of music.
Same Ole Me is the story of George Jones finally told his way with help from Roy Acuff, Tom T. Hall, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Ricky Skaggs and Johnny Cash.
Featuring vintage performance clips of George Jone's classic hits: 'He Stopped Loving Her Today', 'Bartender's Blues', 'The Race Is On', 'She Thinks I Still Care', 'White Lightning', 'Why Baby Why', 'Some Day My Day Will Come'.
Plus bonus tracks recorded live at Church Street Station: 'I Always Get Lucky With You', 'No Show Jones', 'She's My Rock', 'Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes'.
