Country legend George Jones died Friday in Nashville, eight days after being hospitalized for fever and irregular blood pressure, RumorFix has confirmed.
Jones is the singer of such country hits as “She Thinks I Still Care,” “The Grand Tour,” “Walk Through This World With Me,” “Tender Years,” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”
George had hoped to have a farewell tour on November 22, including Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Randy Travis, Charlie Daniels, Kenny Rogers and the Oak Ridge Boys. The tour was sold out.
The legend is survived by his wife of 30 years, Nancy Jones, his sister, Helen Scroggins, and by his children and grandchildren.
