Country music legend George Jones was hospitalized in Nashville on Wednesday, after a routine checkup.
Specifics are vague, but the doctors wanted to “monitor” him overnight, and Jones should be released Thursday, 6 January. “No Show” Jones (sorry, George!) lamented in a joking fashion that he wanted to stay in the hospital longer, so he didn’t have to drive back home in the cold weather that is ravaging the Nashville area currently.
The 79-year-old Jones has quite a history with alcohol, but this hospitalization seems fairly innocuous.
He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1992.
