George Jones DEAD at 81

George Jones ... the country music megastar whose heartfelt vocals and close-to-home lyrics defined the genre for generations ... died today. He was 81.

Jones was hospitalized in Nashville on April 18 for a fever and irregular blood pressure, though the cause of death was not immediately released.

RIP Jones. Such a powerful voice and for my money the best singer of all time. The country artists of today can only dream of being as good as George Jones.

Not a fan of country music at all, but because of the state of country music in the past 10-15 years I certainly miss knowing folks such as George Jones were out there doing their thing. Got to see him live when I was a kid (parents brought me along to an event he played), though, and it's always nice to say you've seen a legend.

Great talent, but like the rest of us, he had his flaws, a longstanding alcoholic, beating up his wife.

But yeah, RIP.

Wow, sad to hear. My dad was a huge George Jones fan and I grew up listening to him. Outstanding voice and a great singer.

Jones was one of the best, its sad to see the absolute trash country music has turned in to, I wont even listen to that crap anymore.

RIP George Jones.

Possum, No-Show, riding his lawn mower to bars because his wife took the car keys so he wouldn't drive.

RIP
