George went in to an unnamed Nahville Hospital on Wednesday, January 5 and went home on Thursday, January 6, 2010.  According to, the Country Music Hall of Famer is doing better.

“I just decided I didn’t want to drive back to Franklin in this cold weather. So I guess I’ll stay here overnight and go home tomorrow!”

George Jones is one of the most respected Country Music singers of all-time and is best known for his Grammy winning classic “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”  George’s most recent project is titled “Burn Your Playhouse Down,” featuring a duet with his daughter, Georgette Jones.  The only child of George Jones and Tammy Wynette.

We will keep you updated on George’s condition and latest projects at and on WGNA’s Classic Country Hall of Fame Show every Sunday Morning, 6-9am eastern.
