    George never was one of my favorites, but, he was a good entertainer.

    Really enjoyed his duet with Patty Loveless.
    "You Don't Seem to Miss Me"

    Rest in Peace, Mr. Jones.

    It's a sad day. I'm glad I went and saw him last month, I figured he would pass soon, but didn't think it would be quite this soon.

    Sad to see him go but I think we are all a little surprised he made it to 81.

    He was suppose to come to Columbus in August, I was thinking about getting some tickets.

    My mom once told me that she dated him briefly. I got the impression it was a "groupie" thing (we're from Nashville) and I also got the impression that Mr. Jones wasn't such a nice guy. She didn't talk much about him really.

    I agree that he ranks at the TOP of the list of pure country singers. I got to see him twice. Just doesn't get any better than him.

    RIP.

    Wife knows all the older artists word for word. She was in a band in the 70's that did a few of his songs.

    I saw him a few years back at Billy Bobs and it was a really good concert. I will truly miss him, but his music will live on.

    George Jones was a REAL country music singer.
    He could tear your heart out with his songs.

    My favorite George Jones song.

    I guess "No show Jones" really won't be showing up anymore.
    One of my favorites from my favorite genre of music...

    He'll be getting played all weekend on my camping trip right around his hometown.
