RIP George Jones - OT

I am a pretty young guy I would think, however George Jones was one of my favorite singers. Saw him twice actually in the last few years here in Edmonton with the wife. Anyways, RIP George.

    His wife would take the keys to their cars before she would leave the house.  So he drove the riding lawnmower to the bar, miles down the road.  Don't think he used SWMBO :))

    He sings about it here....

    A sad day in country music.  Real country is dying fast....except for maybe Jamey Johnson.

    RIP "No-Show"  B-)

    One of the greatest voices in CM.  He stopped loving her today....

    "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" has to be one of my favorits for sure. I'm not a big Country Music fan, just the old stuff pretty much.

    Not a huge country fan... Have to give the bid to the catalogue.

  • "White Lightning" always puts a smile on my face.  It's a goofy song, but my favorite of his because it makes me smile.  R.I.P.


    Shangri la where life is beautiful and everybody's happy.

    Great country singer with many number one records, but he had a rough life !

    He lived a couple of miles from here and several of the kids in my neighborhood fished in the lake on his property.  In fact, they were supposed to have a pre-prom party at his home ths week.  He drove an Audi with "No Show" for license plates and used to have a great Christmas light display.  Not only a great singer, but seemed to be a very nice down to earth man at the end.  RIP.

    He Stopped Loving Her is what I consider the cm anthem. It Is country music. I miss the old guys.

    I'm sad to say, but country music is now dead. RIP Mr. Jones.

    He truly stopped loving her today.

    I grew up on him, Waylon, Willie and the boys.
