There was so much talent in the "old style" country music. Jennings, Wynette, Cash, Haggard. There are a few who still carry it on like Jackson, Strait, Marty Stewart and Patty Loveless.
George Jones was the best of his peers. Though he was controversial and sometimes an accident waiting to happen, he lived his life the way he wanted and his love for country music was absolute. There will be many tributes for George and deservedly so. May he rest in peace.
