When the country music community lost the Possum, George Jones - it was indeed a sad time. Considered one of the greatest country singers of all time, if not the greatest country singer, Jones was a special part of music history. When he passed away April 26, 2013, the community was devastated.
Of course many tributes were had, and sang in remembrance. But when the 2013 CMA Awards rolled around, Alan Jackson and George Strait performed a duet of "He Stopped Loving Her Today". One of Jones' most recognized and beloved songs seemed fitting to show their deep appreciation to their legend and dear friend.
Strait and Jackson stood alongside each other, and harmonized beautifully as images of Jones played in a slideshow behind them. It was a touching, yet somber moment. Nancy Jones sitting in the audience watching the memories of her beloved husband flash by on the screen.
The beautiful tribute was a heartfelt gesture from two other legends that wanted to show respect and appreciation to the man that influenced their careers in country music.
R.I.P. George Jones. You are gone, but will never be forgotten.
