It’s been a year now since country music lost one of the greatest of our time. George Jones died April 26, 2013 after a bout of pneumonia. He was, and still is, by far my favorite country musician. I could write a rambling post about my favorite George memories or lyrics to some of his best songs. I thought maybe I’d just post a few videos below.
Video 1: Vintage George from 1959 performance of one of his first big hits, White Lightning.
Video 2: One of my favorite concerts in it’s entirety. George from Nashville with one of the greatest intros country music has ever seen.
Video 3: Two of George’s favorite musicians pay tear-jerking respect at George’s memorial service last year at the Grand Ole Opry.
