    Oh, yeah...Grandpa Jones! I used to watch him on Hee Haw with my parents. Hee Haw was some good television.

    I do a song of his called "Been All Around This World." Come to think of it, Garcia did too, though my version is more like Hot Rize's.
     
  4. I know who he is, but I don't know much of his music.

    I like his song "Mountain Dew".

    Grandpa Jones was a regular on the Grand Ole Opry for many years and died in 1998 at the age of 84. In 1978 he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. A great old-time ballad singer and banjo player, he was very well-known and liked during his lifetime, and his recordings are still very popular.
