“I am proud to call George and Nancy Jones my friends. George was so much more than a country music icon. He was never afraid to stand and act on what he believed in. George was instrumental in helping organize TNN (The Nashville Network), testified at the FCC hearings on media consolidation, and even wrote a letter of support to country DJ’s at an AFTRA Twin Cities radio station.
