During the past few months, hundreds of country music fans picketed outside Gaylord’s offices, with some carrying signs reading, “Too country and proud of it!'’, and deluged the company with mailed protests. Country star George Jones showed up one day to offer support to the demonstrators.
George recently performed for a crowd of 15,000 at Valdosta, Georgia’s Wild Adventures Theme park, which broke the all-time attendance record for a country artist! The only artist that topped Jones’ record is the R&B group, Destiny’s Child.
Garth Brooks’s highly anticipated Scarecrow, his first studio album in four years, came out November 13. The 12-track album, which is said to be his last, features special guests George Jones and Trisha Yearwood.
George Jones can be seen in several places during the month of November, both in print and on TV.
George will be appearing on the CMA Awards show November 6th on CBS. George will be presenting an award as well as performing. George is also nominated in the Vocal Event Of The Year Category.
