Sad news in the world of country music - George Jones died Friday in a Nashville hospital after being hospitalized last week with fever and an irregular blood pressure.

The Jones, 81, had been set to perform in Salem last weekend but that was rescheduled after he fell ill.

The hard-living country singer recorded dozens of hits about good times and regrets.

In his more than 50 year career had recorded more than 150 albums.
