Farewell to a Country Music Legend…

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."
