George Jones to Be Honored Through Future Monument, His Wife Announces

George Jones Memorial

The late George Jones was a legend in country music, and his impact on the genre will live on in more ways than one. Soon, a monument will be constructed for Jones at Woodlawn Cemetery, where he is buried.

In anticipation of devoted fans who will be paying their respects at his graveside — especially those who are in his Nashville hometown for the CMA Music Festival — a plaque has been placed at the cemetery temporarily by the singer’s late wife, Nancy Jones. It alerts mourners to the anticipated Jones monument, even including a mockup of what the tribute may look like.

“This is a rendering of the monument that is being prepared and will be placed in the coming weeks,” she writes. “Thank you for all your love and support shown to George and to me.”

The words “He stopped loving her today” will run across the top of the monument — a nod to perhaps Jones’ most famous hit. It’s likely to be extremely large and ornate, also including a guitar.

Although his body is now buried, the memories of George Jones and his smooth voice will continue to live on, signified by the album sales which skyrocketed after his passing. The country music icon will continue to be remembered the way he wanted: for his music and strong performances.
