The Ever-Expanding George Jones Concert

Just when you thought they couldn’t possibly add any more artists to country legend George Jones’ last concert in Nashville, along comes Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, Tracy Lawrence, Kathy Mattea, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt and T. Graham Brown.

Scheduled for Nov. 22 at Bridgestone Arena, the Nashville stop on Jones’ “The Grand Tour” is beginning to look like a country music awards show, what with the still-growing list of artists that will join the maestro on his Music City swan song.

The evening will also feature appearances by Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Shelby Lynne, Sam Moore, Lorrie Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, and Gene Watson.

But wait, there’s more with Kid Rock, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Brenda Lee, John Conlee, Lee Greenwood, Eddy Raven, The Roys, Janie Fricke, T.G. Sheppard, Dailey & Vincent, Gary Morris, Jessi Colter, Bobby Bare, Jim Ed Brown, Little Jimmy Dickens and Stonewall Jackson also appearing.

While talking about the November concert, Jones mentioned how much Jackson’s appearance means to him and his wife, Nancy.

“Alan and Denise Jackson have been friends of Nancy and me for years, so this show wouldn’t be the same without him,” Jones said.  “I am also so grateful that my dear friend Garth Brooks is going to be on stage with me. I am not sure who will be crying more, me or him.”

Needless to say, the show is sold out.  For more information about George Jones’ final tour, click here for the country music icon’s website.
