Listen to George Jones on iHeartRadio | Listen to Mindy McCready on iHeartRadio

The deaths of two country stars are being noted among this year's most memorable moments. 

George Jones' passing is paired with the death of rock legend Lou Reed at number seven on's rundown.  "Billboard" says both stars were immeasurably important to their respective genres, and left behind tremendous musical catalogs. 

Mindy McCready's death in February has the number 18 spot.  "Billboard" says her suicide ended "a turbulent decade" for the troubled singer that included arrests and jail time, a brutal attack, other suicide attempts, custody battles over her oldest son, and headline-making allegations of an affair with baseball great Roger Clemens when she was still a teenager. 

Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter, Miley, tops the list.
