We mourn the passing of country legend George Jones, who died today at age 81.  His life, filled with tragedy and resilience and love found and lost, was like a country song.  As the New York Times wrote: “With a baritone voice that was as elastic as a steel-guitar string, he brought suspense to every syllable, merging bluesy slides with the tight, quivering ornaments of Appalachian singing.”
