There was word recently that country music legend George Jones has been ill, battling a lingering upper respiratory infection which has resulted in the cancellation of some shows and a bit of a hospital stay for testing until about a week ago.

Lots of well wishes and prayers have been going out for George.  The simple fact is that George Jones has meant a lot to country music for a lot of years.  He may not be getting any younger, but to lose him at any point in time would be a huge loss to the world of country.

Whether on his own or with the late Tammy Wynette on some of their classic duets, George has been a big example of country music royalty.  Many would argue that he’s been the king of country.

Few would argue with that.

Here’s wishing for you to get well and stay well soon a bit longer, George.
