Remembering George Jones

Country music superstar George Jones passed away Friday at the age of 81, but leaves us with a wealth of recordings to be enjoyed for years to come. Called "the greatest country singer of all time" by his friend Merle Haggard, Jones could move effortlessly from the honky tonk sound of Hank Williams to heartfelt ballads that rivaled any of the crooners of the day. Only Eddy Arnold had more Top Ten country singles, and George charted in six different decades.
