Moving Performance from Vince and Patty at Jones Funeral (Video)
Nashville mourned today as one of Country Music’s legends was laid to rest. George Jones impacted the lives of everyone he touched, and even those who only knew him through his music. His funeral was held today at the Grand Ole Opry and everyone in the music industry turned out, including Vince Gill and Patty Loveless.
Vince began writing “Go Rest High On That Mountain” in 1989, following the death of Keith Whitley. But it sat, unfinished until 1993 when his older brother died of a heart attack. The emotion that went into the song, and the special meaning it held today are evident as Vince struggles to get through.
Watch this moving, touching tribute to George Jones with Vince Gill and Patty Loveless. Just keep the tissues handy! Rest in Peace, George.
