Thousands flocked to the Grand Ole Opry [2] to honor the memory of George Jones [3] last week during his public memorial service. Among the many artists who paid tribute to George were Patty Loveless [4] and Vince Gill, [5] who took the stage together for an emotional duet of Vince’s “Go Rest High On That Mountain.”

Vince did his best to crack a joke as he took the stage before sharing several stories and memories about George, who nicknamed Vince ‘Sweet Pea” and sent him cases upon cases of ravioli. Patty Loveless also recalled memories of George, including a time he’d gone shopping for her records.

“Brother George taught us all how to sing with a broken heart,” Vince said before they performed. “Better than anybody that ever lived.” As Vince struggled to make it through the song, Garth Brooks [7] and Trisha Yearwood [8] led a standing ovation to show their support.
