In 2013, George Jones will mark the end of an era with a farewell tour for his fans called The Grand Tour. After over 50 years of touring, Jones has decided he is ready to slow down and spend more time with family.
“It is tough to stop doing what I love, but the time has come,” said Jones in a statement.
The Grand Tour will visit approximately 60 cities in 2013. The star will perform many of his hits such as “White Lightning,” “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” and “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair.” Jones also plans to record a new studio album, and Dolly Parton has been writing songs for him. There is no scheduled release date for the project at this time.
