Country legend’s FINAL tour to visit approximately 60 cities
Plans to record a new album in the near future
Nashville, TN (August 14, 2012) - In 2013, George Jones, the country music icon often referred to as the “the greatest living country singer” will mark the end of an era with a farewell tour for his fans titled “The Grand Tour". After over fifty years of touring, Jones has decided he is ready to slow down and spend more time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Jones was quoted as saying “It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come". As a tribute to his loyal fans he wants to tour one more year and let them know, this will be his last.
I am so sad about losing Kitty, she was always so good to me through all the years and she had a heart of gold. She will be missed by a lot of fans and family. What a perfect lady God let us have for a while. She made us all smile now she is with her husband and the angels, she will be missed.
Each of the Top 5 songs on this Top 100 Country Songs list could make a strong argument to be the No. 1 song. George Jones‘ ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ may be the most painful love song ever written. It’s an extraordinarily complex emotion delivered with tender simplicity.
George Jones is ready to get back on stage! His wife, Nancy, reports that the 80-year-old country legend, who suffered an upper respiratory infection that required two hospitalizations and time off the road to recuperate, is feeling better and anxious to resume touring.
