BREAKING: Country Singer, WGOG staple, George Jones Dies

April 26, 2013

Legendary country singer George Jones, whose music is a staple of the playlist at WGOG, has died at the age of 81. Publicist Kirt Webster, in an email to WGOG and other stations, says Jones died Friday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville after being hospitalized with fever and irregular blood pressure. Known for his clenched, precise baritone, Jones had No. 1 songs in five separate decades, 1950s to 1990s, and was idolized not just by fellow country singers, but by Frank Sinatra, Pete Townshend, Elvis Costello, James Taylor and countless others.
