Country legend George Jones has died at age 81. His publicist said Jones died today at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville after being hospitalized with fever and irregular blood pressure.

Jones was recently announced as one of the first few entertainers who would be making an appearance at Bossier City’s brand new Margaritaville Resort Casino in July. We’re working to contact the casino’s entertainment staff to get their reaction to the news.

Take a look at this video from Jones’ Louisiana Hayride days. Thanks to Bruce Flett of The Bluebirds for sending it our way.
