More star wattage has been added to the upcoming sold-out tribute concert for the late, great George Jones.
The country singer’s widow, Nancy Jones, announced on Monday morning that George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire, and Alabama will all perform at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 22.
“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.”
Previously announced performers include Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, among others.
Originally envisioned to be Jones’ farewell concert of his “Grand Tour,” the Nov. 22 event took on the theme of a tribute following his death on April 26.
