‘The world has lost the greatest country singer of all time. Amen.’ – Merle Haggard

‘The greatest voice to ever grace country music will never die. Jones has a place in every heart that ever loved any kind of music.’ – Garth Brooks

‘My heart is absolutely broken. George Jones was my all time favorite singer and one of my favorite people in the world.’ – Dolly Parton

‘It’s going to be a big void not having George out there. But you know we’ve got his music and that music will last forever. He did a lot of crazy things in his career, and no matter how crazy he got everybody still loved him. That’s just the kind of guy that George was. We’re just going to miss him. It’s a sad day for the music business, for sure.’ – George Strait

‘It’s a sad day for country music and a great loss for those of us who knew him. I was blessed to call George my friend. He was one of the best country singers there ever was.’ – Loretta Lynn

‘I believe if you ask any singer who was the greatest country music singer of all time, they would say ‘George Jones’. He was without question and by far the BEST! I first met and worked with him when I was 13 years old; I am so very grateful that he was my friend.’ – Barbara Mandrell

‘He had a voice that was the truth, raw and unfiltered. You can’t get any realer, any more tortured or any more alive. No one can do what George Jones does, and that’s why 50 years later, he still stands out as one of the greatest singers in any genre of all time.’ – Kenny Chesney

‘George Jones was my friend and I loved him.’ – Trace Adkins
