George Jones net worth: George Jones is an American musician with an estimated net worth of $35 million dollars. Born in Saratoga, Texas, George Jones began playing guitar when he was nine, and left home at age 16 to pursue a career in music full-time. After enlisting in the United States Marine Corp, he served for one year, and then was discharged. His music career accelerated soon after, and he has recorded a steady string of hit records since then. As of 2012, he has recorded 150 hit songs, and is recognized by many country artists as the greatest living country singer. A former alcoholic and cocaine addict, he earned an ugly reputation for not showing up at gigs during the height of his popularity, and his fourth wife, Nancy Sepulvado, is credited with getting him back on track. At age 81, he is still releasing hit songs, and though he tours less, he still performs at least 60 concerts a year.
