Biography:
George Jones is the
king of country singers

Highlights of the The George Jones Memorial Service at the Ryman Auditorium
NASHVILLE, Tenn -- The Bible says it's appointed for man to die. April 26, 2013 there was an
appointment and he showed up said former Gov Mike Huckabee. I think if George Jones could say
anything right now, this might be what he would say. Don't grieve for me, for I am free. says Jones
friend Tanya Tucker. Some of George Jones very best friends and biggest fans sang in that coveted
circle, at a memorial fit for the king that everyone knew him to be. He was more than a country singer.
He was a country song says Bob Shieffer. Today we are left with the gift of his songs on earth and we
can only imagine how beautiful the heavens now sound says former First Lady Laura Bush. Through
both musical tribute and spoken word, for almost 3 hours, The Grand Ole Opry was filled with tears
and at times laughter. If when I sing this song Nancy, if you could use your imagination and picture a
little bit of George singing it to ya. I know that's a huge imagination! An unshaven, long hair, confused,
country rock and roller trying to channel George Jones laughs Kid Rock. Be it with a smile or fighting
back tears, on their own way, eeveryone here was remembering the George they knew. The Possum,
No Show Jones, The Voice, Country's greatest treasure. Brother George, he taught us all how to sing
with a broken heart says Vince Gill. If there ever were a person that experienced that amazing grace, it
was George says Huckabee. While it's doubtful anyone will every fill George Jones' shoes, he certainly
left footprints for others to follow in for years to come. He lives on in our hearts forever. God made just
one like him. But aren't we glad he did says Shieffer. As long a there is a Grand Ole Opry and anyone
is singing country, George Jones spirit will live on says Pete Fisher, the GM of the Grand Ole Opry. It's
so sad. So lonesome. We've been together so long. says Jones widow, Nancy Jones. As long a there
is country music you will be remembered. We are gonna miss you Mr. Jones says Charlie Daniels.
