MEET THE HALL OF FAME MEMBERS
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.
A LEGACY OF LETTERPRESS
In the early days of country music, Hatch Show Print's handmade show posters supported and propelled the phenomenon. The posters became essential business for the touring giants as the music grew in popularity. The historic letterpress print shop—a property of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum—continues to produce hundreds of original posters and prints each year, many available for purchase in the Hatch Show Print online store.
