The country music community has been grieving since George Jones died in April. To help soften the blow -- and perhaps to cope with his feelings -- Randy Travis dedicated a new song called 'Tonight I'm Playing Possum' to a man many call the greatest country singer of all time. Joe Nichols joins Travis on this powerful duet.
Naomi Judd feels CMT did George Jones a disservice by limiting their tribute to the Possum during the 2013 CMT Music Awards. In addition to the short time allotted for the dedication, the legend was critical of the group the network chose to perform Jones' music.
The late George Jones was a legend in country music, and his impact on the genre will live on in more ways than one. Soon, a monument will be constructed for Jones at Woodlawn Cemetery, where he is buried.
George Jones was aware of his legacy at least as far back as 2005. That's when he conducted an interview with Taste of Country sister station WGNA in Albany, N.Y. and talked about how he'd like to be remembered. The Possum considered the good and bad of how he'd lived and summed it up for his audience.
In honor of George Jones' illustrious country music career, the Academy of Country Music put together a short reel of the Possum's best moments at the ACM Awards. The clip honors Jones' ACM wins and most memorable performances from the 1970s and 1980s.
Country superstar Alan Jackson closed out George Jones' funeral service in Nashville last Thursday with a fitting version of 'He Stopped Loving Her Today.' Now, the Grand Ole Opry has placed the video online for fans to enjoy.
