The Possum


Hey blog world! I just read some very sad news. George Jones (a.k.a the possum) George Jones died today at 81. He was a Country singer. His music is played a lot on the Cabin Party. I love listening to his songs! He’s written some of the most beautiful slow ones like “Walk Through This World With Me” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLiOD0laJbQ and “He Stopped Loving Her Today” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VExw77xJsBQ (which is my favorite slow song of his) and he wrote great fast songs too like “White Lightning” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE5pM1HXxlI and his most iconic song “The Race Is On” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERW8z8Y6MHk. He was married to Tammy Wynette for 7 years. They divorced but still recorded duets together like “Golden Ring” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9KniULwvjE which was recorded 2 years after the divorce. I’m really sad to see George gone. Now more than ever I wonder “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi3GgoLtlWk! Are you a fan of George? What was your favorite song he sang? Tell me in the comments!
