It's widely praised and known even outside of C &W circles.

Sinatra for example praised him as one of the greats...

My late Aunt was a fan later in life ( despite being a native Brooklynite) until her recent death in her 80s.

A great thrill was to meet him back stage in Nashville years ago.

I count myself a fan.

RIP....Mr. Jones.

May 2nd


I listened to parts of the service which was broadcast on local WSM radio and also on WSMV - Television. The service was over 2 hours long. Vince Gill broke down while singing his song "Go rest High on that Mountain". Very moving service.



Here is a link to an interview with George's widow, Nancy:
