It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since country music legend George Jones, passed away. Friends and family gathered over the weekend to honor his legacy in front of his headstone at Woodlawn Cemetery in Nashville.
George’s widow, Nancy, was in attendance on Saturday and claimed she would not cry because this day, more than anything, is a celebration. She also told those in the crowd she would be there every year.
The George Jones Scholarship Fund at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro will make sure George’s legacy lives on, and has already raised $171, 000.
