George Jones, R.I.P.

The undisputed king and master of tear-jerking, heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, soul-aching American country music has passed into eternity. I grew up with his music. You might say he helped prepare me for the real world. He was a public sinner, but a humble one by all accounts. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

    Like you, I grew up listening to George Jones on the radio. It wasn’t until my I reached my mid-20s, however, that I really discovered Jones, and understood how talented he was. I had the pleasure to see him in concert a few times.

    I think you will enjoy this Jones/Haggard duet of the song The Way I Am, written by Merle Haggard:
