George Jones Museum Gets New Ownership

george-jones-museumThe George Jones Entertainment Complex and Museum, located at 128 Second Avenue North, has been acquired by Nashville-based investor group, Possum Holdings, LLC.

The group purchased the building and operating businesses as well as the George Jones Museum memorabilia and a Master License to the George Jones name, image and likeness. They have partnered with Good Time Design CEO Ty Hauter. Hauter and his team will manage operations for the restaurant, bar, event space and museum.

Possum Holdings principals are comprised of investors committed to preserving and promoting the legacy of George Jones, including principal Paul Jankowski. Jankowski is president of New Heartland Group, which focuses on research and insights, brand strategy, content creation, digital marketing and more.

“George Jones is one of the most iconic figures in country music history. Not only did the real estate intrigue us, but expanding the Jones legacy fueled our interest in building a world class brand,” said Jankowski. “We will offer an authentic Nashville experience, focusing on live music and quality food for tourists and locals alike.”

At four stories, the recently renovated 46,000 square-foot space consists of a restaurant/bar, the George Jones museum, an event space and rooftop bar.

“I poured my heart and soul into building a premier destination for George’s fans in a way that he would have loved,” said George Jones’ wife Nancy. “I look forward to continuing to meet George’s fans and am so thankful for all the people who have visited the museum over the last year and a half.”
