Rest in peace, George Jones (September 12, 1931 -- April 26, 2013). Thank you for the music!

There's just something about this video that almost makes me want to cry every time I watch it. So many of the country greats are gone and, like George, I wonder, "Who's gonna fill their shoes?"

Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes?
Written by: Max D. Barnes; Troy Harold Seals

You know this old world is full of singers
But just a few are chosen
To tear your heart out when they sing

Imagine life without them
All your radio heroes
Like the Outlaw that walks through Jessi's dream.

No, there will never be another
Red-headed stranger
A Man in Black and Folsom Prison Blues
The Okie from Muskogee
Or Hello, Darling
Lord, I wonder who's gonna fill their shoes?

Who's gonna fill their shoes?
Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry
And the Wabash Cannonball?
Who's gonna give their heart and soul
To get to me and you?
Lord, I wonder who's gonna fill their shoes?

God bless the boys from Memphis
Blue Suede Shoes and Elvis
Much too soon left this world in tears

They tore up the Fifties
Old Jerry Lee and Charlie
And "Go, Cat, Go!" still echoes through the years.

You know the heart of country music
Still beats in Luke the Drifter
You can tell it when he sang I Saw the Light
Old Marty, Hank, and Lefty
Why, I can feel them right here with me
On this Silver Eagle rolling through the night.

Who's gonna fill their shoes?
Who's gonna stand that tall?
Who's gonna play the Opry
And the Wabash Cannonbal?l
Who's gonna give their heart and soul
To get to me and you?
Lord, I wonder who's gonna fill their shoes?

Yes, I wonder, who's gonna fill their shoes?...
