The royal couple of country music throughout (and even after) their marriage, George Jones and Tammy Wynette had a tumultuous relationship marked by an intense love that was marred by Jones's frequent serious bouts of alcoholism. They had their union play out on the stage and on record as well, where several of their duet album and single releases become C&W chart smashes. Even a divorce in 1976 didn't stop their collaborations entirely. One of their signature hits together is featured on this 2nd episode of S&G's "California On My Mind" theme.
This is the 2nd official podcast episode of 2019 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs about California. It could be about somewhere, something or some aspect of the Golden Coast state but whatever the case, I've chosen the best for these 2 episodes. It's all fair game for another series of tremendous tunes you'll hopefully enjoy. And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centred around. It will be jam-packed with my analysis, synopses, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited-down versions of each tune. And not to worry, because each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all.

All comments, questions and feedback are greatly welcomed and appreciated! I encourage participation. Even though I drain an hour off your life by listening to the podcast then checking through the links, at least you don't have to fork over your money to me... though if you feel like, you know... But in all seriousness, let me now what you'd like to hear or see and I'll consider it. Popular approval doesn't always sway me but having fans or listeners get their input would be just grand!
