Originally conceived as "songs I wished I had recorded," Jones recorded eleven songs that included many he had passed on over the years that went on to become hits for other people. The one hit he did not miss is the first new version of "He Stopped Loving Her Today" in 25 years. "Hits I Missed...And One I Didn’t" includes his first ever duet and video with Dolly Parton on the Hank Williams, Jr.-penned "The Blues Man."

A two-time GRAMMY® winner, Jones first hit the charts in 1955 with "Why, Baby, Why." In 2004 he celebrated his 50th anniversary as a recording artist with the release of a three-disc set entitled "George Jones: 50 Years of Hits," which featured one hit for each year of his career. His two GRAMMY’s are separated by 18 years. Jones received his first in 1981 for his performance of "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and his second in 1999 for his performance of "Choices."

George Jones has won numerous awards throughout his career, beginning in 1956 as Billboard Magazine's "Most Promising New Country Vocalist." He received country music's ultimate recognition in 1992 when he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2002, Jones received the prestigious National Medal of Arts Honor from President George W. Bush. This medal "honors individuals for the singular distinction of their artistic careers." The National Medal of Arts is the nation's highest honor for artistic excellence.
