Many attempts have been made to capture in words the immense, singular vocal gifts that made George Jones one of the most influential singers in country music history. He was the undisputed successor of earlier natural geniuses such as Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell—singers who, in turn, so heavily influenced him in his formative years.
