George Jones knew it was his final concert. Daryle Singletary didn't, but that only makes the song he chose to end the night even more chilling.

After Merle Haggard died, there was a great story about how Toby Keith helped him leave the stage with "his dignity intact." The problem was, it wasn't true. Keith was not there for the Hag's final show, and neither was the man who fooled us into thinking he was.
