We are sad to inform you that our friend, George Jones, passed away on Friday, April 26, at the age of 81.
“Possom” as many called him, ranks among the most influential artists the world of country music will ever know. He was a gentle, touchable human being whose authenticity resonated through every song he sang. His music has made a permanent impression on country music for generations to come.
We also know that George loved gospel music, too. We were honored by his participation in the Country Bluegrass Homecoming gathering a few years ago, and nearly every artist at that taping could hardly wait to meet this country icon.
In his memory, we share the following timeless hymn George sang for us that day. We believe he was a true believer in the amazing grace he sang about that day. Please keep his family in your prayers during this profound loss.
Please enjoy George as he performs Amazing Grace.
