We are saddened to hear that one of our all-time favorites, country legend George Jones, has passed away at Vanderbilt University Medical Center today, at the age of 81.

Often cited as the most-emulated voice in country music, Jones’ successes were as epic as his failures, helping cement him as one of the icons of his genre.
