Brad Paisley, Martina McBride + More Join George Jones Tribute Concert Lineup
The sold-out show, set for Nov. 22 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, was to be Jones’ last show, but is now a tribute to the country music legend.
“The evening of George Jones songs is going to be the best musical tribute Nashville has ever seen,” says his wife, Nancy Jones. “We have many surprises planned, and I just wish George could be here to see what we are doing for him.”
This just may be one of the most jaw-dropping lineups … ever. Previously announced performers include George Strait, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley and many, many more.
Jones, often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer,” was on his farewell tour the Grand Tour when he passed away in April 2013. The ‘Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes’ hitmaker was the No. 2 best-selling country artist of all time, and there’s probably nothing he would have loved more than to see country music’s top singers coming together for a night of celebration.
