George Jones is retiring, going out with one last bang when he plays his final show in November, and the stars of the country music genre are coming out in droves to celebrate at his last gig. Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt are the latest add-ons to the sold out show.
Garth Brooks, Kid Rock, Kenny Rogers, and Randy Travis, among others, are on tap to give George Jones a satisfying send off.
But Jones is especially excited to announce his dear friends and fellow Grand Ole Opry members Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt and other performers from his hit song, "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair," will join him onstage.
Pam Tillis, Kathy Mattea, Tracy Lawrence, Patty Loveless, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt and T. Graham Brown are other new additions to concert lineup. The event, which will soon be dubbed the "Country Music Event of the Year," has already confirmed participation by Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Shelby Lynne, Sam Moore, Lorrie Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner and Gene Watson.
In addition, Brenda Lee, John Conlee, Lee Greenwood, Eddy Raven, The Roys, Janie Fricke, T.G. Sheppard, Dailey & Vincent, Gary Morris, Jessi Colter, Bobby Bare, Jim Ed Brown, Little Jimmy Dickens, Stonewall Jackson and more will all take the stage during the finale performance.
More stars are expected to be announced as performers gear up to pay tribute to one of the world's most accomplished recording artists.
"Alan and Denise Jackson have been friends of Nancy and I for years, so this show wouldn't be the same without him," says George Jones. "I am also so grateful that my dear friend Garth Brooks is going to be on stage with me. I am not sure who will be crying more, me or him."
The show takes place November 22 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
The event is shaping up to be a "Who's Who" of country!
