    George Jones Stage-Worn 2-Piece Suit Designed by Nudie Cohn with Gold Boots and Record Album Picturing Suit. George Jones recorded his first hit, "Why Baby Why" in 1955, and from 1959-1961, Jones had three number one recordings, "White Lightning," "Tender Years," and "She Thinks I Still Care." As the '60s progressed, Jones signed with Musicor and consistently had Top 10 Hits. In 1969, George married his third wife, Tammy Wynette. This union led him to sign with Tammy's label, Epic Records, and it was here that Jones began a 20-year association with producer and hit-maker, Billy Sherrill. Jones scored many number-one singles including, "The Grand Tour," "The Door," "We're Gonna Hold On," "Golden Ring," and "Near You." George Jones enjoyed two great years in 1980 and 1981, when he was awarded Single of the Year and a Grammy for his recording, "He Stopped Loving Her Today." In 1992, the singer was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1996, George wrote his autobiography, "I Lived To Tell It All," which reached #6 on the New York Times Bestseller List. George Jones will always be one of the most beloved Country Music icons. Pictured above is a black, two-piece stage suit worn by George Jones. Nudie Cohn, affectionately known as "The Rodeo Tailor," designed this outfit especially for George. The suit has an ornate design, and across the back and down the legs, Nudie has embroidered, "White Lightning," The above outfit appeared on the cover of a George Jones LP, and the album is included in this lot. In the pocket of the suit is Nudie's label as well as George Jones' name. This suit also comes with a pair of the Possum's gold boots. This is a chance to own a suit, that was not only owned and worn by a country legend, but also designed by a country legend.
