Country music has its coal miners' daughters, lonesome cowboys and honky tonk angels. Men and women have sung about heartbreak, loss and love that lives forever.
These lyrics speak to the heart and soothe the soul, but only but only one song was crowned the winner on "Good Morning America."
Thousands of people logged on voted, and this morning Robin Roberts announced that George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today" won.
"Crazy" by Patsy Cline was a close second, getting 18 percent of the vote, and Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" came in third.
