Throughout his lengthy recording career, George Jones passed on several songs that went on to become major hits for other artists. Jones covers several of these songs on his 2005 album Hits I Missed... And One I Didn't." The hit he didn't miss, of course, was "He Stopped Loving Her Today", which was rerecorded for the project, with a steel guitar replacing the strings.
