I just saw online that George Jones died. As you may recall, he was hospitalized last week and forced to cancel a couple of shows because of fever and high blood pressure. I pulled the following from a news story in Tennessee…
"George Jones, the peerless, hard-living country singer who recorded dozens of hits about good times and regrets and peaked with the heartbreaking classic "He Stopped Loving Her Today," has died. He was 81."
I my favorite George Jones songs are The Grand Tour, Walk Through This World with Me, and Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes.
Who's gonna fill their shoes indeed. It's truly a sad day for country music. Thoughts and prayers to the family of "the Possum."
