When it comes to country music, George Jones was The Voice. Other great singers have come and gone, but this fact remained inviolate until Jones passed away Friday at 81 in a Nashville hospital after a year of ill health.
Nominations were announced Wednesday for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards!
He’s been nominated for “‘Til Summer Comes Around,” released on Defying Gravity alongside “Sweet Thing”, his 2009 winning song. Grammy glory looks good for Keith Urban this year.
