Watch : Until now, I’ve never heard someone perform one of George’s songs so well. (Josh Turner)

Originally recorded by George Jones in 1980, “He Stopped Loving Her Today” is a timeless classic country song that tells the story of a man who never stopped loving his former partner, even after her death. The song has become one of the most beloved and iconic country songs of all time, thanks to its heartbreaking yet poetic lyrics and Jones’ legendary performance.

With lines like “He said I’ll love you till I die / She told him you’ll forget in time / As the years went slowly by / She still preyed upon his mind,” the song builds to an emotional climax with the chorus, which declares, “He stopped loving her today / They placed a wreath upon his door / And soon they’ll carry him away / He stopped loving her today.”

Over the years, many artists have covered “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” including Alan Jackson at George Jones’ funeral, but Jones’ original recording remains the definitive version and a true masterpiece of the country genre. It has won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards for Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song, and continues to be a staple of classic country radio.
