** Happened ''twice'' with "Why Baby Why," his first chart hit. It went to #4, but started falling when Red Sovine and Webb Pierce released a duet version that went to #1 and blunted the chart run of Jones' original. CharleyPride later had a #1 hit with his own 1983 rendition.

* FirstAndForemost: Although his version of "Why Baby Why" was blunted on the charts by Red Sovine and Webb Pierce's #1 version (followed swiftly by ''another'' version by Hank Locklin), and Charley Pride later had a #1 hit with it again in 1983, it's still thought of as mainly Jones's song.

* OldShame: Jones considered his early rockabilly recordings as Thumper Jones an example of this... but rockabilly fans, on the other hand, consider them classics.

* TearJerker: And how. "Choices" is a heartrending tearjerker of a song about how we all must live with the consequences of the decisions we make in life, a sentiment that seems especially credible coming from a reformed hellraiser like George. The narrator of "If Drinkin' Don't Kill Me (Her Memory Will)" is on the verge of drinking himself to death after realizing that he will never overcome the pain associated with his ex's memory. The narrator of "The Grand Tour" takes his listener on a tour of his house, only for the listener to suspect something is amiss and for the narrator to reveal the truth in the startling climax. "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes?" mourns the fact that the legends of country music are one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable. These are just a few examples.
