Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST
Event Description:
SouthFirst Bank Adult Brown Bag Lecture Series presents Terry Robbins on "George Jones: The Crown Prince of Country Music." George Jones—American musician, singer and songwriter—had a sixty year recording/performing career that influenced modern country music and a younger generation of singers, including Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Tim McGraw, and Trace Atkins. The George Jones tale of rags to riches began with his birth in a small town in East Texas where his formal education ended early. Despite the turmoil of George’s hard drinking way of life, his distinctive voice and his gift for phrasing gained him international fame and a long list of hit records. Admirers of George included Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings who said that if country singers could choose, they would all sound like George Jones. Terry Robbins—an award winning songwriter/singer/musician from Clay County, Alabama—will relate some of the personal travails and the amazing successes of George Jones, and he will sing some of the country singer’s songs.
