George Jones’ Grave Site to Feature New Monument
The Nashville grave site of George Jones will soon feature a monument in memory of the iconic singer, his widow has announced. Nancy Jones shared the news with Jones’ fans in a post to his official website.
The iconic singer passed away on April 26 after battling respiratory problems for most of the preceding year. He was laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetary after a public funeral service that featured musical and personal tributes from many of Nashville’s biggest stars. His wife of 30 years says that she anticipates many fans will want to pay their respects to the singer at his grave, and in anticipation of last week’s CMA Music Festival, she had a plaque placed at the site to announce the forthcoming monument.
The plaque reads, “This is a rendering of the monument that is being prepared and will be placed in the coming weeks. Thank you for all your love and support shown to George and to me. God bless, Nancy.”
The plaque (pictured below) features an image of the upcoming monument, which has the title of Jones’ most enduring classic, ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today,’ emblazoned across the top.
