Somehow, I've never associated Leonard "He's My Man" Cohen with George Jones--who has?--but there was Leonard this weekend hailing George and playing his great single "Choices" in one of the encores for his concert in Winnipeg. Sorry, no video of that yet, but for an explanation here's Leonard from a few years back:I listened to country as a kid. I could get WWVA from West Virginia, late at night. Have you heard George Jones’ last record, Cold Hard Truth? I love to hear an old guy laying out his situation." Here's George doing "Choices."
