Goodbye George Jones
by

As both Larry and Teresa have noted, country music legend George Jones passed away today of fever and irregular blood pressure at the age of 81.

Jones was scheduled to perform tomorrow night in Huntsville, Alabama but was hospitalized just over a week ago. He announced his final tour dates last fall. His final concert took place on April 6th in Knoxville, Tennessee. 

Jones will be remembered for his hard drinking, his marital and musical collaboration with Tammy Wynette but most of all he will be remembered for being a mainstay of country music for nearly 60 years.

My two favorite George Jones songs would be “She Thinks I Still Care” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today”, considered by some as the greatest country song of all time.
