This news truly saddens me, though kind of expected. You never know how it will effect you till it does. I could go into a long line of sappy words but will focus on what this man has done for music. Truly a genius with his vocalizations and interpertation.
As a kid I would ride with my dad in his pick-up headed off to his favorite fishing hole and it would be the Possum's songs coming out of that dusty ole speaker on his dash. Certain songs will do that to you take ya right to being 6 years old again goin fishin' with your dad. Man how I miss him :( gonna miss George Jones too in a totally different way.
George Jones thank you for the songs and my memories associated with them may they live on for ever. Now who's gonna fill them shoes?
Heres some of my favoite Possum songs.
