    This was probably his best known song, and is often rated as one of the all time best Country songs (written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman)




    RIP

    Carrie has tweeted (among many tributes from fellow artists)

    "The greatest country singer of all-time. Period.” Couldn't have said it better...

    I may be a fan of the more contemporary country, but that doesn't mean I don't respect the traditionalists. I was stunned to read this on Twitter.

    RIP George.

    They said on the radio that they had planned his final concert for November and that like over 30 artists had agreed to take part, don't know if Carrie was taking part, but I wonder what's going to come of that. The girl on the radio said it might be moved up and turned into a memorial.

    I think that the concert will still go on at some point and it will be a tribute to George.

    Some statements from country stars:

    George Jones brought a lot to country music throughout his illustrious career.

    And when the 81-year-old passed away Friday, his loss was immediately felt. Carrie Underwood tweeted a sweet photo of herself and Jones, writing, "Happy memory of me and George. You may have left us, but your music and your legacy never will. #Legend."

    Garth Brooks told Tulsa World in a statement: "The greatest voice to ever grace country music will never die. Jones has a place in every heart that ever loved any kind of music."

    See what more celebs had to say about the legendary singer.

    Blake Shelton: Really REALLY bad news. We've lost a country music legend. And I've lost a hero and a friend. Goodbye George Jones...

    Keith Urban If I'm blessed enough to make it there, I look forward to you giving me the grand tour. Rest in peace George Jones!!!!! –KU

    Brad Paisley: My friend,the greatest singer of all time,has passed.To those who knew him,our lives were full. To those of you who don't: discover him now.

    Jennifer Nettles: I'll never forget the first time I heard the story in "He Stopped Loving Her Today". RIP George Jones. Country Legend. U will be missed.
