The Nashville Hotshot and the Country Star

George-Jones-608x416.jpg

Country music legend George Jones died on Friday April 26 at age 81. Jones has been called the quintessential country singer.

WYSO general manager Neenah Ellis created a radio documentary about  Jones in 1992 for a public radio program called Soundprint.

A visit to Nashville, Tennessee during Fan Fair, an annual gathering of dedicated country music fans, serves as the backdrop for a review of George Jones long career.  Ellis takes listeners inside the recording studio as Jones makes an album that he hopes will mark his comeback.
