I was in bit of a shock when i heard that! He was in the hospital for a fever and high pressure issues. I have not heard the last on his death on what he died of. He was 81 years old! Jones lived a life full of booze,drugs,a marriage to Tammy Wynette and alot of no shows at concerts! It is amazing he lived this long! George had alot of great hits over the years,too. "He stopped loving her today" was his biggest hit and the song always makes me think of George Jones! RIP 'Opossum.

Yes he was definitly a legend. For someone who almost NEVER listens to country to have not only heard and loved some of his music but to also recognize the name..well that says something of him. The "bad" stuff is not uncommon amongst great musicians or artists. And through it all, he lived a very long life.

"He stopped loving her today" is a classic. It was George Jones bigges hit of his singing career. I was also a award winning song! Through the bad stuff George Jones continued to perform. He will be greatly missed! Jones was a legend!

Yes had some great songs. The ones he sang with Tammy were great. It is too bad he had those addictions, but like you said he lived a long life.

He has lived a long and properous life (even it it was filled with pitfalls). He will always be remembered as a prominate member of the country music community. The great singer of yesteryears are dying around us. My Daddy is a big fan of his. I know he will be sad to hear this.

This ttre George Jones lived a long and properous life even with all the pitfalls! That was surprising! George Jones joins the list of legends we have over the year. Like we have lost Johnny Cash,Waylon Jennings,Kitty Wells,June Carter Cash and Me McDaniels to name a few. RIP in peace George Jones.

He stopped loving her today should be a national anthem of sorts. It's a chilling song that puts you in the protagonist's mind throughout. A true icon of country music is gone.

Yes George Jones was a country music icon. He influenced so many of today's country music singers,too! Country singers are starting to do tributes to Jones in concerts. Toby Keith is one. So many country singers have also been saying how much Jones will be missed and telling thier best memories of him! He is going to be missed!
