He did indeed leave quite a mark on this ole world with his sombre reflections of life, love and drinking. He also had his own style that many have emulated. Peace to his family and loved ones.

RIP George

In his last years, Mr. Jones found himself upholding a traditional sound that had largely disappeared from commercial country radio. “They just shut us off all together at one time,” he said in a 2012 conversation with the photographer Alan Mercer. “It’s not the right way to do these things. You just don’t take something as big as what we had and throw it away without regrets.

“They don’t care about you as a person,” he added. “They don’t even know who I am in downtown Nashville.”
