April 26, 2013

George Jones … the country music megastar whose heartfelt vocals and close-to-home lyrics defined the genre for generations  … died today.  He was 81.

Jones was hospitalized in Nashville Thursday for a fever and irregular blood pressure, though the cause of death was not immediately released.

Jones was in the middle of a tour — it was supposed to be his last — when he fell ill. Several dates had already been canceled.
