.
On Tuesday Toby Keith Pays Tribute To George Jones was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Halfway through Toby Keith's set on Friday night at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, California, Keith stopped the music to talk about his old friend George Jones, who had passed away that morning.

Keith told the audience what Jones was like and described him as a "great guy and the face of country music everybody recognized." He also reminded the younger generation in the audience to "look him up online."

A few seconds later, he launched into the musical portion of his tribute; "here's a little something you might recognize," he said before strumming the chords to Jones' classic hit "She Thinks I Still Care." Keith would later play his rendition of "White Lighting," another one of Jones' memorable hits.

On the grounds at Stagecoach, California radio station K-FROG 95.1 asked artists for their memories of Jones. You can read what Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley and more had to say - here.
