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
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
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.
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.
Jones was the #2 best-charting country artist of all time, with a staggering list of hit singles since the '50s. The Beaumont, Texas
native also has 143 Top 40 hits to his name, has received two Grammy Awards, was a 2008 Kennedy Center Honor recipient, is a Country Music
Hall of Fame member, was presented with a GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012 and holds a National
Medal of Arts medallion.
