To Nancy and all of George's family.
My deepest condolences to all.
I had often said that I would be sad when this day came. And I am.
To me, George Jones will always be the greatest country singer in the history of country music. Nobody will ever match his voice. He could sing anything.
Blues, Soul, rock.
I am very happy that he gave so many great, memorable songs. I love them all, but my favorite has always been the cd "you oughtta be here with me".
George cut thru to the heart. It always felt like he lived every song he sang. Real honesty.
I saw him in concert in 1983.
At the time, my Mom was more of a fan.
I grew up listening to Country that was played in the house
I moved away from Country.
2 singers were responsible for my rediscovery of and love of country.
Gram Parsons and George Jones.
If anybody wants to hear the best country music they should listen to George Jones.
I am very happy at the wonderful person George Jones was. He grew out of the harmful habits, and grew into being the great person he always was. He brought so much joy and happiness to his fans. He had a full and wonderful life.
God bless George Jones. And God bless you at this time.
All our thoughts and prayers to Nancy Jones, and family.
Georgette, you have a wonderful voice. All the best to you.
