NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — George Jones was a different kind of singer.

And fans of the late country star will get a different kind of look when they go visit his memorial in Nashville, Tennessee.

The monument features a large arch with the words “He Stopped Loving Her Today” inscribed under his name.

That, of course, is the title of his best known hit.

The monument also features images of Jones and his widow Nancy, a guitar and his nickname, “The Possum.”

At the monument’s unveiling, Nancy Jones announced a scholarship in her husband’s honor.

On either side of the grave there are benches for his fans to sit and look the memorial.

Jones died in April at the age of 81.
