While you’re out at happy hour this afternoon don’t forget to throw back a shot of white lightning for The Possum, who would’ve been 82 years old today.

To the man that lived life to the fullest extent, leaving plenty of stories in his wake. RIP George Jones. Everyone, go out and have a shot of White Lightning for him tonight. #RIPGeorgeJones #possum #noshowjones #RIP (at Texas Monthly)

Make like the Possum & Tammy and hold on to the love today.
