    George & Tammy Wynette did a show here in Proctors Theater, Schenectady, perhaps 40 years ago–when ALL of us wore a younger person’s clothes. They were both very gracious, signed autographs, shook hands, schmoozed with their audience long after the concert. I’m amazed Jones lasted this long given his substance abuse problems. He was a tremendous entertainer–with and without Tammy. Some artists surprise you. Friends had given me a ticket, encouraged me to go. I was prepared to sit there & secretly dream about the cute drummer! But George & Tammy made such beautiful music–separately and together–it blew me away. And now they’re all playing together in the Great Grand Ole Opry in the Sky!
