George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire And Alabama To Perform At George Jones Tribute Concert

George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire And Alabama To Perform At George Jones Tribute Concert
Nashville, Tenn. (Top40 Charts/ Webster & Associates) With the SOLD OUT tribute concert already hosting top names in all genres of music, Nancy Jones is excited to announce the addition of George Strait, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Reba McEntire, and Alabama to the all-star lineup.

"I am thrilled and honored that so many of George's friends are coming to what would have been his last concert, but is not a fitting tribute," says Nancy Jones. "George loved these artists and before passing had actually wrote letters to almost all of them."

The newly added list of performers will join previously announced artists Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Sam Moore, and others. All previously announced artists are currently being reconfirmed.

George Jones, often referred to as the "the greatest living country singer" was on his farewell tour titled "The Grand Tour," when he passed away. The icon's hits, "I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair", "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes", "White Lightning" and "He Stopped Loving Her Today" will surely become standards for honky-tonk cover bands for years to come.
