A Statement and a Tear on Behalf of All of Us
Category: Tribute Before singing at George Jones' funeral today, Vince Gill referenced Jones' hit "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes" by saying, "It's my belief they don't make those shoes anymore." He then proceded to cry his way through "Go Rest High on That Mountain," so overcome with emotion that duet partner Patty Loveless had to momentarily sing solo and comfort Gill during the instrumental break. Vince spoke for all of us. And he cried for all of us, too. We didn't stop loving George Jones today. We never will.
