Jones Country is an album by American country music artist George Jones. This album was released in 1983 on the Epic Records label. The album's name was taken from an outdoor music park operated and owned by George in Texas near his birthplace between the years of 1983 through 1988 prior to his and his wife's return to the Nashville, Tennessee area in 1989. In one of the more rare occurrences there were no singles released from this studio album until six years later in 1989 when Epic released "Radio Lover" as a single. The reason for this was due to the 1983 recording of "Radio Lover" being one of the songs on Jones' 1989 album, One Woman Man, which also featured the 1983 recording of "Burning Bridges", too. Jones would later re-record "You Must Have Walked Across My Mind Again" for his 1992 Walls Can Fall album on MCA. "Hello Trouble" had previously been a hit single for Buck Owens as well as Jack Scott in addition to being recorded by dozens of other artists while John Anderson co-wrote and had a chart hit with "The Girl at the End of the Bar" in 1980. Bill Anderson later covered Wino the Clown on his 1985 album Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. Originally available only on LP and cassette, the album was re-issued on CD in April 2013.[1]
