George Glenn Jones (19312013) was, to say the least, one of ''the'' most important CountryMusic singers of all time, and given his influence on a large number of ''very'' important rock-and-roll singers, was arguably one of the most important pop singers as well. Active from the early [[TheFifties fifties]] to his death in 2013, he has had an incredibly fruitful career that includes nearly 170 single releases in all. He is widely regarded as one of the most skilled and distinctive vocalists in country music history, and is considered by many country music artists and scholars to be the greatest ever.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: His voice became warmer and richer over the years, reaching its peak in TheSeventies and TheEighties. By TheNineties, he had begun to sound older and more weathered. Jones also told ''Billboard'' that he noticed that after quitting smoking in 1999, his voice became higher again, and he could no longer hit the low notes in "The One I Loved Back Then", but he could sing some of his earlier songs more easily.

* CerebusSyndrome / ReverseCerebusSyndrome: He interestingly alternated back-and-forth between lighthearted and serious phases in his career. After scoring his first #1 hit with the uptempo "White Lightning" in 1959, he abruptly switched to serious ballads ("The Window Up Above", "Tender Years", "She Thinks I Still Care"). Then by the mid-60s he went back to more jivey material ("The Race is On", "Love Bug"), only to get back into ballads by the TheSeventies, starting with "A Good Year for the Roses". After Billy Sherrill took over as his producer, Jones stayed with the more serious material, with a new added element of {{Melodrama}}. But by TheEighties he was mainly releasing heartwarming and comical songs as singles. In a lot of ways it seemed like the instability of his personal life found its way into his music.

* RealitySubtext: Even at the time they were released, it was hard for people ''not'' to see all those torch songs and songs about failed marriages as comments on his relationship with Tammy Wynette. The fact that she duetted with him on several of them did nothing to discourage that speculation.
