BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1R2F9f2Cl6Y - He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones on The Ronnie Prophet Show, July 1, 1980
"He Stopped Loving Her Today" is a song by country music artist George Jones that has been named in several surveys as the greatest country song of all time. It was a single on the album I Am What I Am. Released in 1980, the song was Jones's first No. 1 single in six years. The melancholy song was written by Bobby Braddock and Curly Putman.
It is about a man who was betrayed by his lover. Despite her actions (and her comments that he would soon forget about her), he never stopped loving herthe day he stopped loving her would be the day he died (however, she did attend his funeral).
Jones credits the song with reviving his flagging career, stating that "a four-decade career had been salvaged by a three-minute song." Jones earned the Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1980. The Academy of Country Music awarded the song Single of the Year and Song of the Year in 1980. It also became the Country Music Association's Song of the Year in both 1980 and 1981. This was the second time that the same song won the honor two years in a row. (The first instance was the song "Easy Loving", sung by Freddie Hart.)

BONUS LOVING YOU RECIPES:
A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things
when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of
it, he ignored her and continued on.
"Pardon me," she said, "I'm sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It's just that you look just like my son, who just died recently."
"I'm very sorry," replied the young man, "is there anything I can do for you?"
"Yes," she said, "As I'm leaving, can you say 'Good bye, Mother'? It would make me feel so much better."
"Sure," answered the young man.

He Stopped Loving Her Today
Words and Music by Bobby Braddock (b. 05 Aug 1940) and Curly Putman (b. 20 Nov 1930)
Recorded by George Jones (12 Sept 1931 26 Apr 2013), 1980
He said I'll love you 'til I die
She told him you'll forget in time
As the years went slowly by
She still preyed upon his mind
He kept her picture on his wall
Went half crazy now and then
He still loved her through it all
Hoping she'd come back again
Kept some letters by his bed
He had underlined in red
Every single I love you
I went to see him just today
Oh but I didn't see no tears
All dressed up to go away
First time I'd seen him smile in years
He stopped loving her today
They placed a wreath upon his door
And soon they'll carry him away
He stopped loving her today
You know she came to see him one last time
Oh, and we all wondered if she would
And it kept running through my mind
This time he's over her for good
