GEORGE JONES, LEGENDARY COUNTRY MUSIC STAR, DIED !

Rest In Peace, George Jones!
The Legendary Country Music
Star, George Jones, Died On
Friday At Vanderbilt University
Hospital.He was 81 and had
been suffering from recurring
fever,blood pressure and
respiratory problems.
It’s quite surprising that George
Jones Was On His Farewell Tour
That Began Last Year And Was
To Close At Nashville In This
November Where He Was To Be
Accompanied By Many Music
Stars In His Honor!
Alas! That was not to be in the
scheme of Almighty And The
Crooner Was Called To Heaven
To Perform His Hits In His
Signature Baritone!
Born on August 12, 1931 in
Saratoga town of Eastern Texas,
he had started his music
devotion by playing in the dusty
streets of his town and before
church of his area.
He shifted to Nashville,Tennesse
which was considered as the
Mecca of Country Music.
George Jones’ Music Career
Spanned Over Almost Six
Decades,starting in fifties .
In such a longtime George
Jones saw many upheavals in
his personal as well as
professional life.
He married four times,the last
one in 1983 with Nancy who
helped him redeem himself
after a prolong battle with
Alcohol n Cocain Addictions —
things that dominated his life
since late 60s to early 80s and
earned him a bad press plus an
unwelcome nickname,NO SHOW
JONES for he had notoriously
been missing his performances
due to addictions!
Jones’ second wife was Tammy
Wynette who herself was the
most sought after female
country singer of her times,and
with whom Jones had had
many duets some of them
superhits.
George Jones and Wynette got
divorced just 6yrs after their
marriage,yet they remained
friends and continued singing
together.
Jones produced a whopping
168 records and had many
songs making the top 40 lists
on billboards.
George Jones’ Hits Are:-
‘IF DRINKIN DOES NOT KILL ME
(HER MEMORY WILL)’ , ‘SHE
THINKS I STILL I CARE’ , ‘WE’LL
HOLD ON’ , ‘HE STOPPED LOVING
HER TODAY’ . . . .et.al are some of
the treasures of country music!
His greatest number, He
Stopped Loving Her Today,
happened when he was going
through the most troubled
times as he had to check in a
rehab ,but unable to stay
beyond a month and he was
almost down. . .but,he was
never out !
Music in general and country
music in particular has lost one
legend whose shoes nobody
ever has filled in and never will
any be!
The void created by Jones’
demise will be haunting
forever!
Certainly Today For Millions of
Music Lovers : ‘Things Have
Gone To Pieces’ And It’s Very
Hard To Say : ‘We’ll Hold On’ !
May Almighty Bless His Soul!
