George Jones At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Born in 1931 in Saratoga, Texas, Grand Ole Opry member George Jones heard country music for the first time when he was seven years old and his parents bought him a radio. He was gifted a guitar two years later and, soon after, Jones was entertaining for money on the streets of Beaumont. At sixteen, he moved to Jasper, Texas, where he sang and played on the radio before enlisting in the United States Marine Corps. After his discharge, his musical career took off. In 1956, he was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
