Country Singer George Jones Laid to Rest
Country music legend George Jones has been laid to rest at the age of 81. INSIDE EDITION has the details.
Singer George Jones was laid to rest Thursday in the cathedral of country music, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
The biggest names in music honored the man believed by many to be the greatest country singer of the last 50 years.
Wynonna Judd said, "We have lost a national treasure."
Randy Travis sang "Amazing Grace." Alan Jackson sang Jones' biggest hit, "He Stopped Loving Her Today."
Former First Lady, Laura Bush, spoke about growing up listening to Jones.
"When I was still in school, my friends and I must have put a thousand quarters in the jukebox to listen to 'The Race is On,'" she said.
Jones was 81 when he died last week of respiratory failure at his home near Nashville.
Truly a funeral fit for a legend.
