There can never be another George Jones

Like the song's lyrics explain, legends can never be replaced, but they can always be remembered. Luckily, we have Jones' music to continue his legacy forever. We also have the dynamic duo, Montgomery Gentry to honor his memory with their beautiful rendition of Jones' classic hit, "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes"

Jones recorded "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" in 1985 and released it as the lead single off his album of the same name. As we mentioned, the song's lyrics speak to the irreplaceability of country music icons. Of course at the time, Jones was one of the great ones, but he wasn't singing about himself. Which is what makes "Who's Going To Fill Your Shoes" the perfect song to honor the Great George Jones.

The live Grand Ole Opry performance below was recorded on the very day theat Jones passed away. This is still remembered as one of the most somber days in the country music history, and a day no one could ever forget. Montgomery Gentry took the stage with their heads held high. Despite their heartbreak over the tragic loss, they pulled together for one of the best tributes to The Possum.

Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry have been making music together for nearly three decades. Over the course of their career, they have become one of the most recognizable duos in country music. With #1 hits including, "Lucky Man", "Something To Be Proud Of", "Back When I Knew It All", and others, these two have become legends in their own right.

Watch Montgomery Gentry's tribute to Jones below. Their rendition of the classic, "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" will make you miss The Possum even more. Rest in peace, George Jones.   

LYRICS BELOW  

You know this old world is full of singers
But just a few are chosen to tear your heart out when they sing
Imagine life without 'em, all your radio heroes
Like the outlaw that walks through Jesse's dream

No, there'll never be another Red-Headed Stranger
A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues
The Okie from Muskogee or Hello Darling
Lord, I wonder who's gonna fill their shoes

Who's gonna fill their shoes? Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry and the Wabash Cannonball?
Who's gonna give their heart and soul to get to me and you?
Lord, I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?

God bless the boys from Memphis, Blue Suede Shoes and Elvis
Much too soon he left this world in tears
They tore up the Fifties, old Jerry Lee and Charlie
And Go Cat Go still echoes through the years

You know the heart of country music still beats in Luke the Drifter
You can tell it when he sang, "I saw the light"
Old Marty, Hank and Lefty why I can feel them right here with me
On this Silver Eagle rolling through the night

Who's gonna fill their shoes? Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry and the Wabash Cannonball?
Who's gonna give their heart and soul to get to me and you?
Lord, I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?
Yes I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?
