Statements from Sen. Johnson and Rep. Casada regarding the death of Country Music Legend George Jones

NASHVILLE — “George Jones was a constituent of Rep. Casada’s and mine,” said Senator Jack Johnson (R-Franklin).  “Although he is a legend in the music world, George was so down to earth that upon meeting him you immediately felt like you were speaking to an old friend rather than a superstar.  That sincerity transcended through his music as he touched many hearts during his long successful career.  All of his friends and neighbors in Williamson County join many, many fans across the world in expressing our deepest condolences to his family.  We will miss him.”


“It is fitting that George Jones will be remembered in a ceremony at the Opry where he epitomized all that is great about country music,” added Representative Glen Casada (R-Thompson Station).  “We also want to honor his memory through a Resolution of the General Assembly when the legislature returns in January to express this state’s gratitude to a favorite son who touched many lives through music.  Our hearts go out to his family at this difficult time.”
