Live with the Possum is a live album by American country music singer George Jones released on November 9, 1999 on the Asylum Records label. This is Jones's second and final album with Asylum Records and his second ever live album. Recorded in Knoxville on May 21, 1993 at the Knoxville Civic Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, it is actually the soundtrack of a previously released video of Jones in concert called Live in Tennessee. In 2006 Jones commented to Billboard, "As long as the people still want to come, I'm gonna be there. I don't care if I'm 95. I'm at the point in life where I really could shut it off, but what would I do?"
