Tribute to George Jones

Geoge Jones was a giant in the Country Music World. His voice and songs will be missed. Jones passed away last week. George Jones was born on September 12, 1932 in Saratoga, Texas he died on April 26, 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee.Jones had 14 COuntry number one hits in his career, he was awarded a lifetime achievement Grammy Award (He also won four other Grammy awards), he was a Kennedy Center Honoree, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, The U.S. National Medal of the Arts, and many other awards.

I posted this video on my facebook page once I heard he had passed away. The song kind of fit. The question is Who will fill his shoes?

His first number one hit was "White Lightning"

This one is probably his best known song..

The Country Music World mourns his lost, we hope he rests in peace. What were your favorite George Jones songs? Any favorite memories?
