Country music star George Jones is coming to Greensburg for a benefit concert.
He hopes to raise money toward building the town’s historic Twilight Theatre, which was destroyed by the E-F5 tornado in May 2007.
The new theatre will serve as an entertainment facility for the area as well as an auditorium for Greensburg’s schools.
The “May Music Mania” concert date is May 1. It will be at the Paul Windle Municipal Airport.
For ticket information call 580-273-8044.

Last year I attempted to make a playlist encompassing George Jones’ career in country music, but despite numerous compilations and box sets at my disposal, I couldn’t track down his signature hits from the late 1960s and early 1970s when he recorded for the Musicor label. Later I learned that perpetual lawsuits have kept those tracks from being reissued over the years. However, the fine folks at Time-Life have somehow figured out a way to make everybody happy – especially me – by acquiring the rights to 34 sides from that era for a new double-disc set, George Jones: The Great Lost Hits.
