The sold-out George Jones tribute concert set for November 22 in Nashville just got a whole lot bigger. George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba and Alabama have been added to the already star-studded lineup. Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Josh Turner, Jamey Johnson and Montgomery Gentry are among the previously announced performers.
The show was originally planned as the final show on George Jones’ farewell tour before he passed away in April. His widow, Nancy Jones, says, “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. George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them.”
We’ll keep you posted as more artists are added to the George Jones tribute lineup.
