Commenting on the added performers George Jones says, "Now, people may not know this, but I have been a fan of Cyndi's since I first saw her years ago at the Grammy awards, what a thrill it was to hear she will be part of this final celebration. Don McLean and I first met in the ‘70s, here in Nashville, and I love his singing, his songwriting, and I know his performance will be just as special as when I first saw him sing. Billy Ray is an old friend and someone I have spent many times together, bless his heart for wanting to be with me on this show. I love and respect all these singers."
