Amazing talent wrapped in an often troubled soul. Hard to pick one song of his that is best, but at the moment, he stopped loving her today seems spot on

I don't think any one is going to fill his shoes

Growing up in Alabama, I have any number of George Jones stories that would entertain you.

That being said, he was lucky to live as long as he did.
