Friday, April 26, 2013 was a sad day for Country Music.  We lost a legend, George Jones. Keith Urban posted a short tribute from the heart to the Possum. 

His career spanned over 50 years and recorded more than 160 charting singles.  George had announced he was going to do one more tour, appropriately entitled his farewell tour.  He is survived by his wife of 30 years, a sister, children, grand children, nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to the Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund.
