The “Possum”, “The Rolls Royce of Country Music”. These were nicknames of the one and only country music icon George Jones. He passed away at the age of 81 and was performing right until the end. George Jones has been a part of 1077 ‘GNA for years and he is the man that let’s us all know the weekend is officially here. George Jones never shied away from a party in his prime and that is why we salute the weekend and the kickoff to our parties with him every Friday at 5pm on the Triple Play when we open it up with his immortal hit “Finally Friday.”

George Jones is responsible for singing the greatest country song ever recorded “He Stopped Loving Her Today” and our love for George Jones will always be there in his music and in our hearts. Rest in peace George Jones, and you’ll always have a seat at out 1077 ‘GNA Friday party. Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Paycheck and all of your country music friends will see you on the other side. The music in heaven just got better.
