Country music has lost another legend!

#1 Post by DJPhatman » Fri Apr 26, 2013 3:25 pm

The country music world has lost another legend, George Jones, today. He was 81 years old. He sang what is arguably the most popular song in country music history, "He Stopped Lovin' Her Today"

Well, George, we'll never stop loving you! You are one of my singing idols! You music, voice and life will live forever in our hearts.

R.I.P., Mr George Jones :cry: :oops: :cry:

Amen.

Absolutely the best country song ever written or performed.

I spent saturday afternoon at my own personal George Jones memorial celebration. Music cranked on the stereo, doors open and me singing along with a beer by my side. My brothers Jerome and Brian and our friend Tab had a new wave cover band in the eighties. We played stuff like REM, The Smiths etc. but we would always close our show with "He stopped loving her today" It always killed the crowd. Great song, great singer. He'll be missed.

That just reminded me.....some cowboy punk band did a version of it that was pretty good. At first I thought, "What the hell!?". But, by the second verse it started to grow on me.

There's also the "pickin' on" bluegrass tribute series, I don't know if they did any George Jones tracks.

No need to apologize...


Hey, it was funny! You don't hear many banjo players doing minor pentatonic blues licks in a hardcore country song. :cowboy:
