The GEORGE JONES show scheduled for July 20 at the New Melody Fair in N. Tonawanda, NY has been cancelled because of the promoter’s breach of contract. Mr. Jones is very sad to disappoint his fans but he was left with no option if the promoter does not honor his end of the contract. Mr. Jones hopes to reschedule a show in the area as he is always eager to perform in concert for his New York State area fans.
Country great GEORGE JONES combines forces with country great WILLIAMS SAUSAGE COMPANY, INC. of Union City, Tn. to bring GEORGE JONES COUNTRY SAUSAGE to the American table. Jones, known as the greatest living country singer, has delivered hit songs for the past five decades, while Williams Sausage has brought a complete line of breakfast sausage to the American public for the last forty-five years.
“Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day,” Jones explains from his Franklin, Tn. home. “My wife Nancy sets the table and it’s my job to fry up the sausage and make sure it’s just right.”
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.”
