No. 3: George Jones, ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ – Top 100 Country Songs

He Stopped Loving Her Today
Epic Nashville

Each of the Top 5 songs on this Top 100 Country Songs list could make a strong argument to be the No. 1 song. George Jones‘ ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ may be the most painful love song ever written. It’s an extraordinarily complex emotion delivered with tender simplicity. 

The chart-topper revived Jones’ career, earning him multiple awards, including the Song of the Year award at the 1980 and 1981 CMAs. It’s still not clear how that happened, but it’s difficult to argue. If a song is worthy of such an honor, it’s ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ — Song No. 3 on the Top 100 Country Songs list.

Next: Song No. 2
