In 1999, Toby Keith appeared on The George Jones Show and performed his 1995 hit song “You Ain’t Much Fun.”
Toby Keith performed for the first time since in 2021 cancer diagnosis at the 2023 People’s Choice Country Awards on September 28th. Not only did he receive the inaugural Country Icon Award, he also performed the poignant song “Don’t Let The Old Man In.”
Since his latest performance, we have gone down memory lane and have found quite the throwback – a 1999 appearance on The George Jones Show, which aired on The Nashville Network beginning on February 17, 1998. During this particular episode, the guests included Martina McBride, Ed Bruce, and of course, Toby Keith! McBride performed “Wrong Again” and “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man), while George Jones himself sang his hits “White Lightning” and “Hundred Proof Memories.” Ed Bruce sang two songs as well – “My First Taste of Texas” and “Girls.” Keith performed “You Ain’t Much Fun.”
History of “You Ain’t Much Fun”
Toby released “You Ain’t Much Fun” in March 1995 as the third single off his album Boomtown. It peaked at number two on the charts and did so well that he included it on his 1998 Greatest Hits Volume One album.
