“He Stopped Loving Her Today” is a classic country song originally recorded by George Jones in 1980. Josh Turner, another well-known country artist, covered the song as part of an expanded version of Jones’ album “The Hits…Then ‘Til Now” in 2013.
Turner’s version of the song stays true to the original, with its mournful melody and heartbreaking lyrics about a man who never stopped loving his former flame until the day he died. Turner’s rich baritone voice adds an extra layer of depth and emotion to the already powerful lyrics.
Here are some of the lyrics from the chorus:
“He stopped loving her today They placed a wreath upon his door And soon they’ll carry him away He stopped loving her today”
Turner’s rendition of “He Stopped Loving Her Today” is a poignant tribute to one of country music’s greatest songs. His respect for the original version is evident in his faithful interpretation, and his unique vocal style brings a new dimension to this timeless classic.
