The greatest figures in history.
We'll be laid to rest today -- Last night celebrities and singers from all over attended the private week including our own Mike Huckabee -- the governor will deliver George Jones.
-- just a few hours from now he joins us with a preview -- governor.
Good morning Allison is great to -- with you this morning from Nashville although.
Normally I come to Nashville it's a great occasion today it's kind of a sad reason to have to come to this great city of.
Horses -- let me just lay out some of the notable names there will be there today Laura Bush Kenny Chesney Charlie Daniels Vince Gill Alan Jackson Winona -- Kid Rock.
Patty Loveless Randy Travis Oak Ridge Boys Ronnie Millsap I mean really the who's who in the music world so what you say in the -- in front of every.
-- Very good question I've never been so nervous in my life.
-- you know but I I think it's one of those times when people from all walks of life come together to celebrate the life of a man.
Who didn't just saying to us he sang forest.
And his voice is irreplaceable.
It he had that quality of not just singing the notes but singing the very soul of a song and every time you -- -- George Jones song.
He knew that this was coming from deep inside of it.
Yeah governor what what was your connection to George tells.
Well a big fan for one thing he was on my show in 2009.
One of the great honors of my life was getting to play music with George Jones not because I deserve to -- was good enough I think -- because it was my show and he couldn't throw me off.
-- that that he and his lovely wife Nancy watched our show every week and you know it it that that was amazing to me that -- even knew -- -- was so you know his wife is just delightful and lovely and you know it's it's just a heartbreak to all of us who knew and loved him and respected in this -- really.
A country music and -- and American cultural icon right and you're going to be making your comments later today at the grand Ole opry tell us what happened last night because I know you've got some sound -- for us.
Well it was a pretty remarkable night it was supposed to be just a private visitation for invited people.
And I was thinking OK they'll be a few hundred people there there were a few thousand people there.
It was absolutely stunning and it was.
A collection of essentially anyone and everyone that ever.
Not only grace the stage but the greatest song writers record producers musicians people who drove buses and and give you just forget how many people.
And how George touch their lives in just talking to people I was standing behind the governor of Tennessee bill Haslem and -- manager -- and we were just talking about that how this man over so many decades.
Have reached down and mentored young musicians and help them.
He's just a remarkable person.
Let's listen to some sound -- from last night.
We need to celebrate his -- We're going to be sad we're gonna.
Level miss Nancy and you try to hold her give her -- he never did anything the same way twice it's such creativity.
We always made everything he gets those -- He gets in singers in Nashville to -- the same song and the one who remembers one George lost a great fan.
And the world has lost a great points there was no generation.
Some crucial and -- Feel fields are -- -- generation.
I'll never forget George.
I don't believe that this -- we'll ever find anybody like -- Well so that is later today there at the Crandall every -- -- got to does this is tall order for you today governor.
Well it is and it's -- opportunity though it to say on behalf of all of his fans thank you George Jones for.
As being a voice for just common everyday ordinary people which that's what he -- -- us.
-- -- -- get your comments on the other big one of the big news of the day and that is that the rules -- changed for the plan B morning after pill fifteen year olds and up can now by the -- Over the counter.
That permission -- -- information other parents that that is better than eleven year old says yes had previously been.
Suggests it's a fifteen year olds I mean obviously the debate is whether or not it's better for them to be able to buy this sport.
And prevent un on one teen pregnancy obviously is the goal here.
But sometimes you wonder if the government's trying to prevent unwanted parenting.
This really ought to be a decision which parents are involved.
And the fact is if we don't like fifteen year olds vote and we don't let them drive and we don't let them buy alcohol -- and we don't let them go to the military and signed contracts.
What makes us think they're suddenly mature enough to make a decision about ingesting a drug that they may not take properly and -- here's the irony.
Mothers and fathers have to sign written permission so their daughters can get and -- -- at school.
But they can go to the drugstore and get plan B one step it's created it this is a political decision not a medical decision came states fight back you're governor.
Well I think they -- to a point that probably they can't override what will become a federal law.
And you know it's it's I think -- a bigger issue with.
-- would we ever think that.
Mothers and fathers ought to be excluded from the pairing process it's one more intrusion.
Where government is trying to take the role of mom and dad and I still will always believe.
Mothers and fathers raise better kids than the government will.
And there are some people say well not all parents are involved that's no excuse though for preempting parents who aren't and who are involved.
From the handful who are not all right Mike Huckabee today joining us from Nashville speculated today but the -- offered for George -- Governor thank you very much good luck today thank you sense and you can watch the governor Saturday and Sunday at 8 PM on Fox News Channel you.
