Ever Question Yourself?

Hey everyone! I have an inspiration board in my studio and one of my favorite quotes is from George Jones, yep the country singer. George was asked about his song He Stopped Loving Her Today during an interview and this was his response:

"I told them, it ain't never gonna sell, it's just too damn sad!"

Obviously it's all a matter of personal opinion, but I don't think anyone would question 
that this is truly one of the most powerful country songs of all time.

Moral of the story:
Sometimes you just have to complete the task,
because if you don't, you may have missed out on your signature song!

Have a happy day:@)  


  1. So true! I have always loved George Jones and this song is a favorite. Fun to sing along too!


  2. Hi Lynn, I am not familiar with the song but the link didn't work for me. funny but I just left You Tube xo,

  3. Well said. And a powerful song indeed.

  4. George Jones is one of my Mr.'s favorites. I'm not familiar with the song and I didn't listen to it...I am a big cry baby and the title almost made me cry.

    Have a great Labor Day my friend! xo

  5. I am not familiar with the song but I love and agree with your "Moral of the Story".

    I thought of your beautiful fall flower photos when I went to the nursery yesterday. Fall is certainly in the air. And yup, they even had pumpkins!

    I hope you are having a wonderful long holiday weekend.

  6. No question that would not sell. I love it and most all of his songs. Especially, the ones with Tammy Wynnett.

  7. Funny was watching country music today and saw him on there twice!

  8. Hi Lynn! I've never been a big fan of George Jones but got to liking him when Hee Haw was on TV. My daughter and son in law went to see him perform in Bakersfield, California and they said it was great!
    Be a sweetie,

  9. THIS has been my favorite country song since George first recorded it. I have listened to it at LEAST a million times, and tears come to my eyes every single time. In fact, just talking about it with you has a lump in my throat.....

  10. Love it, always have. I am from the "country when country wasn't cool" generation. I can just see my mom and dad's old 78 Vinyl album covers of Loretta Lynn, Kitty Wells, Merle Haggard, and George Jones. Thanks for bringing back a flood of memories today.

  11. Great to Sing along!! I never fail to smile at your blog's name it makes my day to see it as you comment on other blogs:)))


  12. Oh Yeah George...thanks for this one and a jillion more great country songs. Saw him in concert in San Antonio when he and Tammy Wynette performed together before they were D I V I O R C E D!!! Now that was L O N G ago!!!

  13. I don't know much about George Jones but he should give you some compensation for a great ad. My Mom likes ole George and sings along with that sad, sad song when it plays on the radio. I like something a little more happy but I'm not knocking you George J. fans. Shannon

  14. Oh I love some of the old country style songs that George sings! IT is a sad song!

  15. So true. Thanks for the reminder.

  16. I just saw this one. What a great message through that one song! (It happens to be one of my all time favorites from a favorite singer. I'm from Georgia, remember...)

  17. Aww! I love country music because of songs like this that make you really stop and think and "feel". There certainly is a place for that as well as all the other! Great inspiration connection to carry on! Thanks!

  18. I'm so glad I heard this today. I have not heard of George Jones before so thanks so much for letting me know about him and this song. I love to learn about new music, especially music that means so much to people whose opinions I value!

    Best wishes,


Thanks for stopping by!
