this possum is no more

NASHVILLE – Country music legend George Jones died Friday, April 26, 2013 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. According to a press release, he was hospitalized April 18 with fever and irregular blood pressure.

Born September 12, 1931, Jones is regarded among the most important and influential singers in American popular music history. He was the singer of enduring country music hits including "She Thinks I Still Care," "The Grand Tour," "Walk Through This World With Me," "Tender Years" and "He Stopped Loving Her Today," the latter of which is often at the top of industry lists of the greatest country music singles of all time.

"A singer who can soar from a deep growl to dizzying heights, he is the undisputed successor of earlier natural geniuses such as Hank Williams and Lefty Frizzell," wrote Bob Allen in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's "Encyclopedia of Country Music."

I never really cared for his music. I understand how much he meant to country music though and I always loved hearing stories about him.

Any country singer who can get his stuff played in a Wesley Snipes movie about street basketball isn't your every day country singer.
