R.I.P. George Jones (1931-2013)

Odd that just as I've been on quite the country music kick lately, my favorite legend of the genre passes away. Seeing his face regularly on Austin City Limits, Hee Haw, and The Grand Ole Opry  is an enormous and fond memory from my 1970's-early '80's childhood.

George "Possum" / "No Show" Jones stopped lovin' her today. They placed a wreath upon his door. Thank you, George, for popularizing two of my favorite songs.
