There are numerous really unhappy nation songs, however George Jones’ 1980 hit “He Stopped Loving Her Right this moment” stands above nearly all of them. It got here out years after Jones’ industrial peak and he even thought it was too sappy, however he recorded it anyway and it shot to the highest of the nation charts. Merely put, it is a few man whose good friend holds onto his misplaced love till the day he dies. She attends his funeral, though he spent many years pining for her in useless. Different singers would have had issue pulling it off, however Jones managed to convey the tune and not using a trace of sap. Alan Jackson sang the tune at his funeral earlier this 12 months.
