George Jones: The Man, The Music, The Flattop Haircut 

Friday, Feb. 24 at Morrison Center

Even money-smart individuals are tempted to spend tax returns before they have them in hand, especially to see a hero in person. And the truly dollar savvy among us see the value of a $41 George Jones concert ticket compared to a $65 George Jones photo throw blanket (both of which can be purchased at georgejones.com).

Jones will play the Morrison Center at Boise State on Friday, Feb. 24. It's the White Lightning-era Jones you can expect to hear--the storytelling, guitar-strumming Texan who plenty of women have loved.

His song "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" reminds fans that Jones has earned the right to stand among the greats--Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, John Prine and Conway Twitty. His closed-mouth croon tells the stories that defined the country-music genre at a time when it took more than a cowboy hat to be a country singer.
