One of the newest stops for sightseers at CMA Music Festival this week is expected to be the grave site of George Jones, who passed away April 26. The country legend was laid to rest at Nashville’s Woodlawn Cemetery, and Thursday, his widow announced plans for an elaborate monument.
“Earlier this week a plaque was placed at Woodlawn Cemetery to announce a Monument to be constructed in the coming months,” Nancy writes on Jones’s website, next to an image of the plaque. “Thank you for all your love and support shown to George and me.” Fans who visit the grave site will be able to see a rendering of the monument on the plaque.
What was to be Jones’ “final Nashville concert” at the Bridgestone Arena is set to continue as an all-star tribute, with R&B legend Sam Moore, Charlie Daniels, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys and more set to play the November 22 show.
