There was no such thing as production at Starday. We’d go in with the band, we’d go over the song, I’d look over and tell the steel player to take a break or kick it off, and I’d get the fiddle to play a turnaround in the middle.George Jones
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
There’s nothing prettier in the world than a melody. I can get lost in a song with a melody. A lot of times I have, and the song wasn’t that good, but I would get lost in that melody, and I’d want to do the song.George Jones
We’d just go to church and sing. My dad would get me and my sister Doris, and we would sing together. I sung the harmony, and my sister Doris took the lead.George Jones
The only music we ever listened to out in the piney woods was Roy Acuff and the Grand Ole Opry. That was the only night of the week I was allowed to lay in the middle of the bed with Mama and Daddy, just long enough to hear Roy Acuff sing; then I had to go back to bed.George Jones
