List RulesVote for your favorite George Jones songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the top George Jones songs, as voted on by fans like you. In a way George Jones, or The Possum as he was nicknamed, was the Iggy Pop of country music. A man known just as much for his insatiable self-destructive appetites as his remarkable talent. But as renowned as those appetites were, they never overshadowed that truly a remarkable talent. Jones had a voice of such emotive power that when applied to frequently sad tales of lost love it epitomized the concept of a tear in your beer.

When matched with fellow country singer and frequent romantic sparring partner Tammy Wynette it was pure country gold. There's really no point in pretending there should be anything else at the top of this list than "He Stopped Loving Her Today" but the next 49 tear jerkers are up for your debate as to where they belong in this incredible singer's canon. And feel free to add any you don't see here that gave you a particularly good cry. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
