Jelly Roll, Riley Green, Uncle Kracker, The Oak Ridge Boys, The Isaacs, and Janie Fricke have joined the lineup of artists to perform during a special one-night concert paying tribute to the late music legend George Jones.
They will join already announced names, some of the most talented musicians in the country music industry, such as Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Jamey Johnson, Justin Moore, Lorrie Morgan, Mark Chesnutt, Michael Ray, Sam Moore, Tanya Tucker, Tracy Lawrence, Trace Adkins, Tracy Byrd, Travis Tritt, and Wynonna Judd.
The concert, titled “Still Playin’ Possum: Music & Memories of George Jones,” will be held at Von Braun Center Propst Arena in Huntsville, Alabama, on April 25.
The event will be recorded for a TV special.
George’s widow Nancy Jones is the executive producer of the sold-out event.
She thanked the many fans that are traveling from all over the world to be in Huntsville for the special night.
“I think the team of producers has put together some incredible moments that will surprise everyone. People will be laughing, crying, and singing along to so many of the songs performed that night. It will be an emotional night not just for me, but also for these artists as so many were very close to George. I hope everyone that attends or gets to see it on television will enjoy it and remember their favorite George song,” she added.
