If you ask die hard county music fans to name the greatest country love song of all time. You will get a lot of argument. Tim and Faith's "It's Your Love" Lonestar's "Amazed", John Michael Montgomery's "I Can Love You Like That" Kenny Roger's "Buy Me a Rose" and many many others come to mind but I believe George Jones recorded the greatest and a lot of fans would agree.

It was on this date in 1980 that Mr. Jones hit the top of the charts with "He Stopped Loving Her Today" which may be the greatest country love song of all time. George never believed it could be a huge hit but George was wrong about this one. Here is that now 36 years old classic. Thanks for all the great memories George.
