"He Stopped Loving Her Today" makes me teary-eyed.
Jimmie is one of the earliest country singers but he still sounds a little folksie to me.
I've always liked this song. Others have covered it better,IMO, but Merle ain't bad.
I think everybody and their brother covered this one, Merle Travis and Tex Williams co- wrote it.
Story goes, Tex said "Hey Merle I need a good song, can you help me? Merle Said gimme a cigarette, I can't think without a cigarette" Wrote it in one day. copied
