JOHNNY PAYCHECK REMEMBERED

Nashville is mourning the death of one of its own -- Johnny Paycheck passed away last week at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after a battle with emphysema and asthma.

The community, rocked and stunned by his death, is rallying together to pay tribute to the legend. George Jones is donating the burial plot -- which happens to be right next to his own. "We all know and love each other, even though we don't get together," said Jones. "Anything of this nature, it's taken care of by friends."
