R.I.P. Country Legend George Jones

Posted 26 Apr 2013 in Blog

It was this afternoon around 12pm when I walked into my office at work and heard the news about George Jones passing away.  It hit me very hard and instantly made me reflect on my moments with him.  I was very fortunate and honored to be asked to open for him twice back in 2007 and 2008 @ The Pepsi Roadhouse.  Meeting him backstage and talking with him are moments that I will never forget.  He was a sweet man in his late 70’s at the time and I was just getting my feet wet opening up for this national act.  I made friends with George’s band leader Kent Goodson and Walter Ferguson.  Kent and I wrote a song together called “The Dream”.  Working with George was one of my biggest moments in my musical career!  They will live with me for the rest of my life and I am truly grateful.  My friends and family shared in those moments and for that I say thanks as well.  Rest in peace George Jones.  You will always be remembered…
