It was also the year that Jones won his second Grammy as Best Male Country Vocalist for his performance on the single “Choices.” His only previous Grammy was in 1981 for his performance of “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”
Jones’ Gold-selling 1999 COLD HARD TRUTH CD reminded fans and critics alike why he’s considered “the greatest living country singer.” “Choices,” the first single from that album marked his 164th charted record. The Keith Stegall produced project earned Jones some of the best reviews of his already illustrious career and ensured his place in the new millennium of country music.
Whether the times have favored honky tonk songs or lushly produced “pop” offerings, George Jones has continued to make his brand of country music, which has produced hits in every decade of the second half of the 20th century.
