Dozens Of Country Stars Say Goodbye To George Jones
When George Jones announced the first round of special guests appearing at his final Nashville show, it was quite an impressive line-up.
Then, when the second round of guests was announced, I was sorry that I didn't buy tickets to the sold out show. Now that the third round of guests has been announced, I am envious of anyone who gets the chance to see all these stars in one night. For those of us not lucky enough to be in attendance of this "who's who of Country Music" roster, lets hope that the show is taped for a TV special.
I think the special guests included on this list are a testament to George Jones' amazing career and influence. I'm not sure how each one will play a role on this special night, considering time restraints, but they will all be in the house to celebrate Jones' final Nashville concert.
