George Jones

George Riddle - left - and George Jones - rightMusic Charts Magazine remembers George Riddle.  (September 1, 1935 – July 19, 2014)
Patsy Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick introduced me to George Riddle several months ago and it was such a pleasure to meet a man who had lived such an interesting musical history.  From eating with Patsy Cline the morning of her plane crash and being a family friend to how he met George Jones and became Jones’s tenor singer.  It was a honor to know George Riddle and an honor to have him interview with us here at Music Charts Magazine in 2014.  We are unsure but this may have been George Riddle’s last interview.  Listen as Big Al Weekley talks with George Riddle and they both remember the great  George Jones.  You can also hear George Riddle in Part 2 of the Patsy Cline documentary at Music Charts Magazine’s website.
I hope you enjoy this interview with George Riddle as much as we enjoyed speaking with him.  We will remember you George Riddle.

GRAMMY® winner Gordon Stoker was known for his stellar tenor voice, which graced countless memorable recordings throughout his more than 60-year career. As a longtime member of the vocal quartet the Jordanaires, he helped to influence the sound of gospel, country and pop music with a unique and versatile style while recording with an impressive roster of artists. Stoker worked with the likes of Patsy Cline, George Jones, Loretta Lynn and played a significant role in the career of Elvis Presley for more than a decade. We have lost a gifted and timeless artist who made significant contributions to music and our industry, and our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends and all who were inspired by his talents.
