George Jones has taken a little ribbing and a little heat during his journey in the country music world. 'No show, Jones,' 'Opossum,' and few other tags were just par for the course for Jones, but he took it all in stride and just did it his way. And you know what? We loved him for it.

It's hard to believe that Jones has gone home to the Lord. 81-years-old and he was still going pretty strong. He left us with a multitude of songs that really became the soundtrack of our lives through the years. And I'll always treasure the last George Jones concert I was able to share with my wife and in-laws at the Bangor Auditorium just a few short years ago.

We'll miss ya, George. Thanks for the great music that will stand for generations to come.
