Marshall County’s Silver Trail Distillery has reached an agreement with the wife of late country singer George Jones to produce a new spirit bearing Jones’ name.

Distiller Spencer Balentine will sign a contract with Nancy Jones to produce "George Jones White Lightning Moonshine" on Tuesday, January 13 at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park. The event will have live music and will be filmed for a new reality television series pilot, according to a news release from the Hardin, Kentucky distillery.

Jones’ cover of the Big Bopper’s “White Lightning” was his first number one single. 

John Null is the host and creator of Left of the Dial. From 2013-2016, he also served as a reporter in the WKMS newsroom.
