This was going to be his last year touring before hanging up his hat.  I thought his nick name was “No Show Jones” due to his legionary hard drinking binges!  He will be missed.

His name commands respect of country fans, but I like how this respect is shown by his fellow artists as well. Like one of my favs...Alan Jackson.
