We lost the Possum, George Jones -- who is considered one of the greatest country singers ever, if not the greatest country singer ever -- earlier this year. Of course, the 2013 CMA Awards paid tribute to the legend, with Alan Jackson and George Strait performing a duet of 'He Stopped Loving Her Today,' which is Jones' most recognizable and beloved song.
The details for George Jones' funeral service have been announced. The iconic country singer will be laid to rest on Thursday, May 2 in Nashville. In an honor fit for such a legendary talent, Jones' funeral will take place at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tenn. To accommodate the enormous outpouring of fan support, the service will be open to the public.
