A year and a day on…

Hard to believe it’s been just over a year since the passing of the great George Jones. I remember hearing about his memorial service a few days later and all the wrenching performances from the friends he left behind. I finally sat down and watched this one yesterday.

And, well…let’s just say that I had a bad enough time just watching it. I really can’t imagine how terrifying it must have been to be in Alan Jackson’s shoes right then, especially knowing what George Jones meant to him as an influence and as a friend.

And at the time, I might have thought the music couldn’t really get any worse, but we see how that’s turned out, don’t we?
