Country legend George Jones says he’s working more than he wants to these days, but he plans to trim his tour dates in 2009 to allow him to spend more time on a real estate project.
George is the official spokesman for Ronnie Gilley Properties, an Enterprise, Ala.-based developer that also has partnerships with Alan Jackson, Tracy Lawrence, Lorrie Morgan and Darryl Worley.
Barbara Mandrell emceed the induction of her first producer, Billy Sherrill, into the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville Tuesday night, part of a star-studded event that paid homage to key players from a variety of genres at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
Billy is the first person enshrined in the Hall as a producer, recognizing his contributions to the careers of George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Tanya Tucker, Charlie Rich and Johnny Paycheck, among others.
