Last couple of years Roo has had a country legend perform and I would personally like for the next one to be George Jones. He has some good timin songs and a fistfull of classics. Anyone else care to see him or any other country artist they would like to see?
He wouldn't be my top choice but I would check him out. I think that I'd prefer Kris Kristofferson or Dolly Parton as far as country elders go. Actually, I'd prefer Johnny Cash or Waylon Jennings but those ships have sailed...
Kind of surprised to check back on this and see it split dead down the middle... but, again, I haven't seen or heard from him in 3 years or so, so he may really be in a bad way and not suited for a Roo performance.
I had the opportunity to see him about 30 (oh crap has it been that long) years ago in a small venue in Macon. I was at the front and he was directly in front of me about 10 feet away. It remains a cherished musical memory..."he stopped loving her today"
