Thousands are gathering in Nashville today to pay their last respects to the man widely regarded as the greatest singer in country music. Former First Lady Laura Bush, CBS correspondent Bob Schieffer and country singers Kenny Chesney and Barbara Mandrell were among those who offered eulogies at the public memorial for the late George Jones. Alan Jackson closed the service with Jones' most famous song "He Stopped Loving Her Today." George Jones died last Friday at the age of 81.
