Today, we lost one of country music's biggest stars... the amazing George Jones.
One of my absolute favorite songs of his, is this one;
George Jones - LIVE "He Stopped Loving Her Today" (Courtesy of "The Ronnie Prophet Show".)
I'm listening to it while writing this and getting emotional. Which I always do, when I hear this song.
But now it has a much deeper meaning.
I met George in the late 70's and was fortunate enough to hang-out with him a few times.
Looking at this picture, I realized that I still have those boots!! Since 1978! Man, they don't make footwear like they used to.
I love this picture, because I can still hear him saying, "You're not gonna blackmail me with this, are you?" :) Such a funny and great guy! A true country gentleman.
One of my favorite stories about him, is that his wife hid his car keys from him, because she didn't want him to go out drinking. He showed her! He got on his John Deere tractor and drove to the bar!!
I guess he's singing with Tammy now. She also left us much too soon.
Rest In Peace, George and Tammy. You will be missed by many. But your music will live on and on. You are loved. ~ ~

There are SO many things to love!
I love "Followers" and comments too!
Signing off for now,
