He Stopped Loving Her Today is a song recorded by American country music artist George Jones in 1980.

It was the lead single from Jones’s album I Am What I Am, and it became his first solo number one hit in six years. The song has won several awards, including the Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance in 1981, and the Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year in 1980 and 1981.
