I hadn’t seen that. Thanks for posting.
Was that a Memorial service or a funeral>
I am not much on people who tape funerals.
I believe this was a Memorial service.
Thank you for the link. That was fabulous.
And none of the “show off’ crap you get with musicians or ‘singers” today.
It was so beautiful the way Patty Lovelace helped Vince Gill get through that song. They are both amazing talents.
Funeral? So they did bury George in the Ryman!
Vince Gill originally wrote that song for the funeral of his brother who had a troubled life.
Thanks for posting. Very nice. Condolences to family and friends of George Jones. R.I.P., sir. Thanks.
Vince Gill is the most talented artist in Nashville now. Performing for George Jones at his funeral was very traumatic for him. He made it through.
Are you an idiot or a thirteen year old?
I watched on the computer. and Laura Bush was one of the Guest speakers...she did a classy chat, that made me miss her all the more.
loved George Jones music in my youth...
and he..STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY...THEY PLACED A WREATH UPON HIS DOOR,, SOON THEY WILL CARRY HIM AWAY, HE STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY. ALAN JACKSON SUNG THAT IN HIS HONOR AND MEMORY AT THE END..HAD ME WEEPING..
The songwriter was Curly Putnam. He had a way with saying goodbye. George got it right.
I know who wrote it...but I just commented that Alan Jackson sung it at the end of George Jones Funeral.
I hope they release the rest of the performance. I watched most of the procession to the burial site. Metro did a very good job of clearing the roads.
RIP George Jones.
George Jones, one of the true greats of country music, rest in peace.
I missed the funeral. I’m in Charlotte and worked that morning.
retired in SW Pennsylvania..and was reading FOX Breaking News site and saw a web for the funeral...clicked and sat here for hours..got nothing else done!!! hubby was lucky to get supper...
was a very touching service...
This was played at my husband’s aunt’s funeral this morning. Beautiful, heavenly song. Has made me cry since the year it was released- the year my best friend was murdered.
Love how Patty carried the song when Vince Gill wasn’t too choked up with tears to cry.
I logged in to WSMV. They covered it online. I lived in Nashville for a number of years. I was just wondering what was still on and the procession was going on. It went for 45 minutes or so and the feed was lost.
Agreed. George Jones was a great one. He, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline were the absolute pinnacle. They lived their art. It was genuine.
The recorded version on CD has Vince Gill singing the lead with Ricky Skaggs and Patty Lovelace singing the back ups. The song iniatally was about Gill’s brother but also was about Keith Whitley a friend to both Gill and Skaggs.
>”He, Hank Williams and Patsy Cline were the absolute pinnacle.”
More of my favorites.
I was watching Country Family Reunion last night a show that comes on RFD TV. It showed a lot of the older singers sitting around telling stories and singing. It’s a regular series on that network. Roy Clark was on last night as well as Gene Watson and Jim Ed Brown. Roy was looking real frail.
Decent people....not like Rapper crap thugs!
Check this out. Georgette sounds like Tammy. This really packs a wallop.
Thanks for posting.
How fitting that Patty Loveless performed. She is one of the last “Old Country” style singers.
Just a link to the old school. Enjoy
