When George Jones died, we lost the greatest country singer who ever lived. Every time he stepped in front of a mike, he knocked me out. “She Thinks I Still Care’ is my favorite. Then there’s ‘White Lightning’, and the list goes on forever. His delivery on ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ is comparable to a fine opera. He’s conveying something there about as well as it can be conveyed. I think he’s with the Lord, probably having a great time , him and old Hank Williams and all the rest. ( Wait a minute now, Hank may not be there.) George was real .. the most down-to-earth old country boy – didn’t want anything special. He was just George Jones and we loved him.
