I'm thankful he didn't stick with rock

I just felt like listening to some GEORGE JONES this morning. Early Jones -- stuff like "Cup of Loneliness," "Color of the Blues" and "You're Still on My Mind," but also the funny stuff, such as "White Lightning."
I spent yesterday loading COUNTRY music onto my new iPod, and I guess I felt like taking some of the classics out for a spin.
I have heard some earlier Jones -- rockabilly songs -- and I wondered today what his career would have been like if he had continued in that vein, rather than the pure country that made his name.
Driving around today, I was glad Jones stuck with the country style.
