Country music superstar George Jones was a bit of a golfer, too. And as music world mourns his death – Jones passed away early Friday at the age of 81 – we wanted to pay our respects by providing a link to a very funny golf-themed video in which Jones has a cameo.

Back in 1993, Vince Gill – the country music star most widely known for his love of golf – had a big hit with a song called ''One More Last Chance,'' and the video for that song is all about golf. At the end, Jones makes an appearance driving a small tractor with his golf bag strapped across the back.

That, of course, is a laughing reference to one of the more infamous incidents in Jones' wild life – when, while on a drinking binge, he drove his John Deere riding mower 10 miles to a liquor store.
