The Voice of Heartbreak: George Jones

AltTulsa is interested in all sorts of topics, everything from politics to poetry, from biography to the arts. We also enjoy music (but who doesn't?), even some of the old country crooners like George Jones. 

Jones has long amazed music fans with the particular quality of his voice, a voice that is sad, lonely, even heartbreaking. So we weren't too surprised when NPR featured Jones in its Fifty Great Voices series.

Courtesy of NPR, you can hear the voice (and see video clips) here.
