Country Stars Mourning, Remembering George Jones
George Strait says the late George Jones wasn't just an incredible country music performer. He explains that the Possum was a country music personality.
Luke Bryan tells WHLK in Indianapolis that Jones "lived the ultimate country song." He describes Jones' material as "amazing stuff," adds that "for years" his truck's CD holder included "four or five" George Jones hits collections. Casey James also counts himself a longtime fan of Jones and other traditional country stars. He says the news of Jones' death was "a sad, sad thing to hear," and he wishes they all "could continue forever." George Jones' lengthy, storied, and influential career came to an end with his passing last Friday. The country music icon was 81.
