George Jones has sustained his career in country music for six spectacular decades. But of all his career milestones, accolades and achievements, one simple thing stands out – when legendary songwriters Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman brought him a song called ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today.’
“I’m very proud of a lot of things here lately,” George tells The Boot. “The Kennedy Awards and of course the Hall of Fame in country music – just so many good things that I’m proud that have happened to me, but getting a song like that [is the greatest of all].”
George Jones will perform at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the UMSL campus on Saturday, lugging along a country music tradition that stretches back 55 years.
Known as the ‘voice of country music,’ Jones has been in the music business for more than half a century. But he is about to embark on a new part of his life.
Jones and his fourth wife, Nancy, are busy making the transition to a new home in Dothan, Alabama as part of the Country Crossing entertainment complex project. Jones will have a dinner theater and bed and breakfast named after him, called the Possum Holler Dinner Theater and Bed & Breakfast.
Country music has its coal miners’ daughters, lonesome cowboys and honky tonk angels. Men and women have sung about heartbreak, loss and love that lives forever.
These lyrics speak to the heart and soothe the soul, but only but only one song was crowned the winner on “Good Morning America.”
Thousands of people logged on voted, and this morning Robin Roberts announced that George Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” won.
