The November 22 George Jones tribute concert is not only sold out, it boasts some of the biggest names in country music — and the lineup keeps growing! George’s widow Nancy just announced the addition of George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire, and Alabama to the all-star lineup. The concert will be at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
“I am thrilled and honored that so many of George’s friends are coming to what would have been his last concert, but is now a fitting tribute,” says Nancy Jones. “George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them.”
The newly-added list of performers will join previously announced artists Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. All previously announced artists are currently being reconfirmed.
George Jones, often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer” was on his farewell tour titled “The Grand Tour,” when he passed away.
