NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 7, 2003) - Wheel of Fortune has set re-air dates for its highly successful shows, which originally aired February 2003, taped on the stage of the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. “Country Music Stars Week” will re-air July 14–18, and “Nashville Week” will re-air July 28–Aug. 1.
“This is a very sad day for me as well as for millions of music fans around the world,” said George Jones. “John was a very dear friend – we had a long history together. We both went through a lot of messes in the old days but ended up realizing what was important in life and changed our ways. I just went out and visited him a few weeks ago and he looked so good and was busy recording new material. I know that the angels will sing today and heaven is a better place with the addition of Johnny Cash. I’m sure he is happier now that he is with his beloved June.”
