I loved Roy Acuff with all my heart, and I never dreamed I’d be able to meet him or see him onstage, or especially become good friends with him. For all this to happen, it’s hard to explain what a dream this is when you love something as much as I love traditional country music.George Jones
Roy Acuff was a big hero for me, and I was so sad when he passed. It’s hard as you get older to lose your friends and family.George Jones
When you don’t act right to your family and friends, that’s bad, but they also have the opportunity to experience the ‘good’ side as well. Disappointing the fans is an entirely different thing because the fans love your music and save up money to see you in concert.George Jones
I just wanted to sing, in church or wherever.George Jones
There were a lot of songs during my MCA years that I thought should have been singles but were not. You can’t worry about what wasn’t – I was very lucky to have as many hits as I had.George Jones
