If George Jones were still alive, he’d likely be mighty pleased to see the talented roster for his farewell concert.

New additions have just been announced, with icons such as George Strait, Reba McEntire and others to gather together to pay tribute to Possum, celebrating his lengthy and lasting contributions to country music.

Jones’ devoted wife, Nancy Jones, announced that in addition to an already star-studded lineup, Strait, McEntire, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Alabama will be a part of the sold-out concert on Nov. 22 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

Other previously revealed artists include some of the top performers in music: Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, the Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore and more. All other performers originally confirmed for the show are being contacted and re-confirmed.

“I am thrilled and honored that so many of George’s friends are coming to what would have been his last concert, but is not a fitting tribute,” says Nancy Jones. “George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them.”

Jones — often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer” during his lifetime — was on his farewell tour titled the Grand Tour when he passed away. This was going to be his final Nashville concert. The ‘White Lightning’ hitmaker will always be remembered, and the tribute concert is another way to celebrate his amazing contributions to music.
