Country music stars to turn Jones' final concert into tribute concert


NASHVILLE (WATE) - Organizers of George Jones' final Nashville concert are turning the show into a tribute to the legendary country singer.

The country star died last week at the age of 81.

He was in the middle of a farewell tour and played his very last show right here in Knoxville.

He had been scheduled to play Nashville's Bridgestone Arena November 22.

On Tuesday, Jones' wife, Nancy, posted on the singer's website that she's asked a number of artists who were set to participate if the show was still on.

The list includes Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels and more.

She says they've all said yes.

Some of those artists performed at a public tribute last week.

Tickets were previously sold out, but Nancy Jones is telling fans to check with Ticketmaster about more tickets possibly becoming available.
