The Singing Miner of Hazard, KY! George worked 28 years in the mines, and even with a damaged arm managed to learn guitar and won every Labor Day song writing contest with simple chords and angry/sympathetic songs for the workers. A Southern Joe Hill, family man, and rebel till his death. From the writer of the coal mining classic "Sixteen Tons," which tells you what it is like to pull each of those tons out of the ground. A real working class hero.
