    The Possum lives.

    Recognized worldwide as the greatest living country singer, the late George Jones, who died in April of this year, represented everything about country music and was loved by fellow artists, musicians, producers, publishers, songwriters, video directors and industry executives. On November 22, Nashville and beyond will honor the music legend with an all-star tribute, the date that George was to perform the final show of his illustrious career.

    "I am so excited how this show has evolved and I will be forever grateful to the artists that are coming to honor George," said his widow Nancy Jones.
