Brad Paisley:“George Jones’s life is an example of so many wonderful things. How someone’s God-given gifts can make this a richer, better place. How one human being can overcome adversity, addiction and life-threatening obstacles time and time again. That it is not the stumble or fall that counts, but the willingness to stand again. How a keen sense of humor and a twinkle in a person’s eye can still prevail even after all of life’s hard knocks. How mistakes, missteps and bad choices are not the end of the world if a person chooses to turn them into something good. And George’s life is, above all, the strongest example of how the love of a great woman can get a man through anything. All of this made its way beautifully into every note of the greatest voice country music will ever know. And one of the greatest friends you could ever have. We miss you already, George."
George Jones has passed away at the age of 81. The Possum, as he was affectionately called, died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Our thoughts and prayers to his family and the entire country music community.
