The country star’s peer early this morning began pouring in their tributes. Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Undwerwood and Keith Urban are among the country stars who shared their admiration and condolence messages via Twitter describing the fallen musician as a great country music legend.
Jones’s musical career was not free from controversy battling drug addiction and alcoholism. Jones was also notorious for not appearing for shows and that is how he got branded the ‘No Show Jones’ nickname. However, Jones was able to overcome his addictions and obtained several musical achievements including in 1992 getting inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Jones is survived by his fourth wife Nancy, several children as well as grandchildren.
