Jason Aldean recalls the 'thrill' of working with George Jones

If the comedy stylings of Jason Aldean wouldn't worry Jon Stewart -- or Larry the Cable Guy, for that matter -- the co-host was genuinely touching in a moment that had to happen. Aldean cited the "thrill" of having worked with George Jones in a (somewhat surprisingly) short tribute to the recently deceased country-music legend. They crossed paths professionally only briefly, but Aldean name-checked Jones in his "Dirt Road Anthem," and his introduction of the Mavericks to perform the Jones staple "The Race Is On" was heartfelt and moving. -- Jay Bobbin, Zap2itGetty Images
