I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend and Music legend, George Jones. George was one of those people who touched so many lives with his music and his life and I know I join with countless others in mourning his death and ask that you join me and Janet in praying for Nancy and the rest of his family. I was blessed to have had him on my Fox show and play along with him which will forever be one of the highlights of my life. I grew up listening to him and I have often said that my being a Governor, Presidential candidate of host of a National TV show would not have impressed my Dad, but playing on stage with George Jones sure would have! As much as my being able to play along with the Possum. George had a warmth about him that was laced throughout his music but also exuded from him in person. Although, he had struggles in life , George was a shinning example of someone who could take those struggles, overcome them and be a better person for it. His lovely wife, Nancy was a rock for him and he credited her for saving his life and helping him to cope with the challenges he faced. I was looking forward to being there for his last concert in Nashville later this year, but that will have to wait. I still hope to one day play along side him again, but in that concert, I'll be playing much better---he already was at the top of his game. His legacy, his music and his influence in Country Music will live on for generations to come.
