George Jones turns 74 with a new album

Sept. 9, 2005 at 7:42 PM

NASHVILLE, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Country legend George Jones will celebrate his 74th birthday with an album of songs that became hits for other singers after he rejected them.

Jones turns 74 Monday and the aptly titled "Hits I Missed ... And One I Didn't" is due to hit store shelves Tuesday, Bandit Records announced Friday.

Jones, who's also celebrating 51 years in the music business, has included on the album his first duet with fellow legend Dolly Parton, "The Blues Man," by Hank Williams Jr.

The "one" hit on the album that Jones didn't miss, by the way, is a re-working of his signature tune, "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
