He managed to pack a lot of living into 81 years!

RIP George Jones

A country music legend has been lost today. All who listen to country music will miss him, as will I.

Getting ready to fix a playlist for "The Possum". First on - He Stopped Loving Her Today. Next - B-Double E- Double R-U-N with Garth Brooks.

Most definitely one of the great ones - I found a folder on my external hard drive that had all his gospel cd's and am listening to that now. Get chills just listening to him.

I didn't grow up with George Jones. Heck, I didn't willingly listen to country music until the early nineties... This was the first somg of his I remember though. At least where I knew it was him singing it and in rotation.


And probably my favorite.
