Sad day for this country music fan and no doubt millions of others. George Jones passed away this morning at the age of 81. The 'Possum', as he was known, was one of the artists whom I grew up with in this business. I remember being a sophomore in high school spinning records...yes....records for KVLH/KGOK radio in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma during the mid 80's. George Jones had a song called "The Corvette Song." At the time I hated country music. But I liked that song. But the 'Possum' is known for many other great songs. And when I get home today I'm going to pop open a cold one and listen to them. RIP George Jones. No one is ever going to fill your shoes.
