    I am also in the George Jones camp but there are many good ones posted here.
    This is a modern sad song.

    I don't know - IMHO this one is the saddest - though technically probably bluegrass rather than country:

    I was thinking about that song but couldn't remember the name and too lazy to look it up.

    And then there is this AK/US classic

    With two school age children of my own - both free spirits - Jacob's Dream hits home. Every parent's nightmare.

    Regarding Union Station, you know you have one heck of a band when Alison Krauss is just the fiddle player (albeit a dang good one) on some songs.

    I agree.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Gotta admit, Not a county music guy, but this song got to me. What a tear jerker, especially later on when the video came out and you see the wife join him for a split second with their child at the fishing hole. She made it!:cry

    speaking of sunday morning coming down, there's a radio station in orlando that has a program by that name that play great old country and new country, alt-country and contemporary roots music sundays from 9-12, worth listening to as they play new good music and classics not often played
    here's there play-list from last week

    I believe sadder than all the love lost songs IMO are some about our US troops:

    Make the forum great again.....consolidate general fishing with for sale or business but keep reports separate!

    Sad story for sure but it's a cookie cutter standard arrangement Nashville Pop type of song. Mawkishly cornball. IMO
    “Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.

    Couldn't agree more. It hit's the mark on two sad notes- 1 for the story/ message, 1 for the quality of music. Definitely challenges the OP's initial assertion though.

    Hadn't heard this one before.

    Lost in a world without Haggard

    Can't listen to that one with a dry eye after standing on top of a mountain in Jamestown, Tennessee as this song ended and the piercing notes of "TAPS" began. As a person who has no problem standing in front of a crowd and speaking, I was amazed at how I nearly choked on my own tongue trying to present the eulogy the day we laid my grandfather to rest.
